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.

341ml bottle from the LCBO. Toffee caramel aroma. Very malty. Copper/amber body with minimal, if any, head. Overly light carbonation. A little bit of bitterness on the finish.

On tap @ Granville Island. Bronze pour with a small off-white head. Really sweet caramel aroma. Lots of toasted nuts and some grassy hops. Slight butterscotch. Flavor is really sweet as well. One of those sweet caramel water beers. Slight grassy bitterness and a light floral hop character. Meh.

What the hell do you do at the cottage beside steal your brother’s cold beer while you’re waiting for yours to cool down. (It was warm beers, or warm milk. The cooler can only hold so much and my kids hate drinking the resulting cottage cheese. The sissies.) Drank from the cottage-appropriate loon glass tumbler. Pour a caramel clear brown, half finger white head that reduces to spotty sheet. Cereal malt nose, little caramel touch of copper. Cereal malts, little hops bitterness, thinner on the palate, creamy carbonation mouthfeel. This beer is meh. Thanks Molsons, and I think my brother owes me a better beer for taking this silver bullet for him. Whatcha think?

Liquide de couleur dorée avec un peu de mousse. Nez d’agrumes et de caramel. En bouche c’est simple et efficace. Agrumes et caramel. Corps faible a moyen. Carbonation faible a moyen. Moyenne amertume. Ce n’est pas un grand cru mais ca fait le travail!

Canmoore (256) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2014
Pours a deep copper, with a thin bubbly head. Aroma includes notes of cracker, and caramel malts. As well as some floral hop notes. Tasting notes include caramel, dusty, some fruity hop notes, and a clean finish. The palate is light and watery, overall I am disappointed in this pale ale. I have had much better BPA’s.

Masterkush7 (504) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014
Aroma of malts and not much else. A very watery beer. The caramel malts taste very syrupy. Not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hidden_Pooch (295) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle. Nothing too outstanding here, but not really bad either. Tastes of toffee, caramel and little hopping. Has a reasonable mouth feel and good carbonation. Not the pale ale I would choose over big brewery offerings, but I wouldn’t turn it down.
