The Devil Made Me Brew It! Brewed for 66.6 minutes with 666kg of malt and 6.6kg of hops, Devil’s Pale Ale is a robust ale weighing in at 6.6% alcohol (notice a theme yet?). Darker than traditional pale ales, Devil’s Pale Ale has an unmistakable hoppiness both in aroma and taste, balanced by a selection of 6 choice malts.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2008 Pours a translucent brown with a thin off white head. Mild aroma with a little bit of nuts, malt, and some fruit. I thought it was a relatively sweet beer with the malt dominating the hops. I was hoping it would have a little more hop profile. Very easy to drink though and decent overall. Part of the first trade I made on ratebeer. :) Thanks jerc

Tap at C’est What. Deep copper coloured brew, thick tan head. Aroma is quite nice. Softly sweet with notes of apricot, plums and cherries. A bit of nuttiness and a light kiss of licorice as well. The aroma is both subtle and complex at the same time. A little bit sweet with some light brown malts and a fairly fruity flavour. Soft palate. Low bitterness, but the beer is still fairly dry. Pretty decent for what it is.

500mL can from LCBO. Pours a blackish brown, thin white head. Touch of raisins in the aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Little sweetness in the malt, fairly dry.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Can, courtesy blankboy. Pours a dark ruby brown color. Definitely not Webster’s definition of a "pale" ale. A thick foamy off-white head has good retention, and braids of lacing remain on the glass. Big malt aroma, plum, cider, dense chocolate. Some distant pumpkin, too. Very malty flavors, with dough and caramel qualities. Molasses, raisin also. Really don’t get a strong hop presence at all. The malt character leaves a nice refreshing grain feel on the tongue. Easy drinking, and a semi-bitter finish. Not bad.

473ml can from MrManning - thanks Lenny! Dark, honey brown pour with a big, off white, almost yellowy head. Drippy lacing. Interesting nose - nutty, some nectarine, caramel, toffee and a bit of tobacco. Earthy flavors, toffee and caramel, some doughy notes. How is this a pale? At all? Not. Regardless, a nice drinker. Finish is pretty empty, just a slight mineral tinge. Nice.

Well, to the Devil, this may be considered "pale". In actuality, its a deep mahogony brown color and topped with a 2 finger width tan colored head. The can is pretty slick as well. Aroma is sweet, with maple syrup being prominent. There is some sweet grain, a touch of chocolate, and alcohol. Mildly sweet flavor of roasted malt and toffee, with moderate astringency. Body is somewhat thin and watery, with a biting carbonation. This was an interesting beer to try, just needs a bit more oomph in the flavor. How about a Canadian Strong Ale category? :)

I was surprised to see that this was an American Pale Ale. Kind of dark and heavy for this style. I liked it though. Very malty. Nicely carbonated

Canned sample via gregclow. Deep amber in colour with average carbonation. Aromas are mainly of caramel and lightly toasted malts, along with a wiff of grapefruit. Flavor wise there’s a whole lotta toast, caramel, and candied oranges. Some bread dough becomes apparent near the finish. A bit heavy and dark for an APA, but a fairly good beverage nonetheless.

Devils Pale Ale pours (from a can, actually) a clear red-amber with a thin ivory head. This is a heavy beer for a pale ale, with lots of caramel malt and hops. The whole ’6’ theme with ingredients is cool, and yields a fairly balanced beer, but not the best.

Interesting premise for a beer. Pours a clear brownish-amber with a brief head. Aroma is sweet malt, light hops, pretty macro-ish. Tastes likewise - plenty of crystal, slightly stale hops. Tastes more like an attempt on an ESB (slightly nutty character) than an American Pale Ale. Body is thin and marginally carbonated. Thanks to robinboyer for the trade - gotta try everything once!
