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.

As others have noted, definitely very malty, very English. Enjoyable enough but a little too sweet. Among the better of the basic GIB line.

Bierdimpfe (349) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
Clear copper color. Weak one finger head that dissipates in 5 minutes. Flavors of roasted grains, toffee, faint berries, cinnamon, nutmeg, faint ginger and herbal spices. Is a little bready and biscuity, with bitter red ale spices. Smooth medium bodied, the carbonation is prickly. Light finish that lingers with a faint roasted and grassy feel, and faint gingerbread. Overall decent quality craft. Decent flavors, a little faint, but the balance is great. Well refreshing, a little light, yet satisfying and filling.

473 ml can on the shore of Keji National Seaside Park in Nova Scotia. . Tea colored with exceptional clarity, visible carbonation and a fine head. Mild flavor that’s only a bit more hoppy than malty. Clean and well balanced but mild like a session pale ale. Medium body and carbonation.

On tap at carbones, pours a nice copper color, light malty aromas and a rusty kind of caramel malt flavour, definitely not my favorite pale ale

AleRider78 (672) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2016
Had a pint at The Paupers Pub on Bloor st. in Toronto. Pint arrived with a thin layer of foamy head. Has a dark coppery amber appearance. Aromas of mild hops and malts. A bit of grains and wheat coming through as well. Taste is of light roasted malts and a good balance of fresh hops. Very mild spices. Somewhat bitter aftertaste. Not too bad.
