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.

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.

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 (261) - 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.
