COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The English know a thing or two about pale ale. West Coasters know a thing or two about having a good time. Naturally, we kept these facts in mind when we perfected the recipe for English Bay Pale Ale. Tradition is served in the smooth, mild flavour and caramel malt aroma, and that distinctive West Coast character comes through thanks to natural carbonation and careful maturing. The result? A real pale ale with will rise to any occasion.

Bière cuivrée, limpide et où flotte une mince écume éphémère ne tenant pas au verre. Des arômes légers de malt caramel et de conifères. Elle est peu amère et quelque peu sucrée. Elle est aqueuse, mince, très effervescente et se termine sur une courte amertume.

Mild caramel or maple, roasted, a bit nutty, not much else, watery finish with some cinnamon-like aftertaste.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2014
On draft at Saracoa in Hamilton, ON. Poured a medium amber. Aroma was caramel malt, slightly fruity hop. Flavor was clearly malt focused, lots of caramel notes, with a balancing finishing hop, slightly citric in character. More of an amber in many ways, probably because of the C hops being so muted, whereas this would have been a more expected hop profile in an actual EPA. Just so-so.

RickTheRick (194) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
Cuivrée et limpide, beaucoup de fines bulles créent malheureusement un col mousseux très mince et décevant. La déception se poursuit autant au niveau des odeurs que des saveurs avec ses notes de malt grillé et de caramel qui ne laissent aucune place ou presque au houblon. Fade et désagréable, point final.

culchiem (2301) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 27, 2014
Draught. Clean amber with a thin head. Aroma is toffee malt. Flavour is malty, toasted grain, light bitter finish

Papillon (363) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
341 mL Bottle. Copper body with a thin short-lived off-white head bleaving some spotty lace. Aroma of sweet malts with a hint of apple, astringent hops, and a soupçon of treacle. Flavor of sweet malts, piquante hops, a syrupy malty aftertaste that tapers off to a not too imposing hoppy finish. Alright but no plans to revisit this.

dfearnley (762) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 15, 2014
Can to IPA glass Grains, straw, light lemon, yeast, and red bell pepper. Clear copper with a thin creamy white head and lots of effervescence. Taste is grains, some apple, yeast, and a little skunk...no make that a little skunk that builds late onto your tongue. A solid, but not exciting brew.

473 ml can. Pours a hazy amber with a resilient white head. Aroma is caramel, citrus. Flavor is malt, caramel, somewhat dry. A touch of fruits and citrus in the finish. Light body, watery, average carbonation.
