3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A "nice" summer beer if there ever was one. This West Coast Pale Ale has a deep golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma is of hops and citrus, exactly what you would expect. Palate has a clean finish, nothing overpowering or too much in the way of a "wow" factor, but it’s certainly solid. A nice mix of citrus fruits and hops going down. Overall this is a good beer, one that will be a go-to in the future for your average beer drinking day.

A staple in the Ontario market. Very well balanced, hop forward pale ale. Great beer to pair with baseball ;)

The go-to beer at GLB, easy to find around town, easy to drink full of flavour and a great hop flavour all around. Not too heavy or big, not too bitter, but also not boring. Its not going to knock you off your chair, but it is going to get ordered again and again.

Draught at The Craft Beer Market, Ottawa. Pours a clear medium gold, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts well and leaves very good lacing. The aroma offers light pine and fruity notes, along with smooth malt. Lime and pine up front give way to smooth caramel malt in the mid-palate. Pine hops give it a pleasing finish. A satisfying pale ale.

Translucent yellow-gold body with average head. Mild nose is crisp, refreshing grapefruit hops with piney backdrop, hints of caramel. Taste is sweet, citrusy, and well balanced. Slightly nutty bitter finish. Low to medium carbonation, smooth and easy-drinking. High quality product.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich amber coloured body with a copper glow and a nice, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of super fresh hops, earth, caramel and a touch of grain. Medium-bodied; Strong hop flavour at first with some subdued earth, toffee, caramel and rye flavours and a lot of fresh hop bitterness toward the end. Aftertaste shows a bit of grass, a lot of caramel and some toffee as well. Overall, a nice and respectable beer with a lot of fresh hop notes and some subtle caramelised sugar flavours throughout. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from the LCBO on Wellngton (underground) near York Street a few hours ago on 08-August-2016 for CA$2,65 sampled in my hotel room a few hours later here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 08-August-2016.

Keg at Bar Hop. Clear golden body with a thin white head. Good lacing. Aroma of hay, minerals and apricot. Flavour of tonic water, grass and lemon. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. Easy drinking, just ok.

Une bière de bucheron. Arome de pamplemousse, citron et légèrement épineux! En bouche, semblablement la même chose, et goût fruité acide, floral... Moyenne amertume qui perdure sous des notes malté et fruité!
