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

AWS9 (486) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Re-rate time! Pours deep ruby brown with thick, foamy head. Roasted almond and malt aroma. Heavy malt taste, with a hint of hops. Some nuttiness. Not a great balance between malt and hops (how about 66.6 kg of hops?) Solid, but ultimately flawed. Re-rate: bit more hop kick on re-taste kicks this up a couple notches.

50 cl can, Shelburne. Dark brown colour, thick foamy head. Strong but balanced malt and hop aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor, almost shandy like, with bitter finish under all the sweetness. Nice for one but wouldnít want to drink too many!

Pours dark brown like a porter with two fingers of eggshell coloured head that dissipates quickly. Very little carbonation. Aroma has notes of black licorice and some spices. Initially there are some spring tastes like fresh cut grass. This opens up into a pleasant hoppy bitterness that persists for a while.

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 16, 2007
Can from trade with Matt7215. Half inch white head that recedes quickly. Dark on top, pale on the bottom. No bubbles. Aromas of sweet caramel and malt. Mild alcohol smell. Hoppy bitter taste. Well balanced, medium body. Too bad this is canned, Iíd love a bottle or a pint of this one.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2007
Can. Chestnut appearance and excellent head-retention for a canned beer. Aromas of orange custard, milk chocolate, dark malt and the faintest touch of coffee. Hefty palate offers a creamy flush of malt. Dark chocolate flavour evolves to bitter coffee towards the finish, with a nutty/buttery quality surviving throughout. Good to very good.

Oakes (12639) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2007
Dark burgundy-amber colour. Aroma of canned peaches, some caramel and tobacco. Light body. Some toffee notes, light smoke and earth. Esters of pear, golden plum. Interesting interpretation is nothing like a pale ale, but isnít all that bad as a beer.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Killer can. Pours with little to no head, but much darker than expected for a beer billed as a pale ale. Deep reddish-brown, and not much in the looks department. Aroma of candy sugar and malt: a sweet array of smells. Nice mouthfeel, soft and silky. An odd balance of flavors. Enough hop bite but thins out considerably at the end. Prune sweetness. Earthy, with some wholemeal bread notes like pumpernickel.

BINGEBOT (240) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
Dark brown in colour, very odd for a pale ale. Minimal lacing head. Smells a little nutty and malty. The taste is a little too metallic for my liking. Refreshing though with a nice roasted coffee aftertaste. Strange for a pale ale.

MaltOMeal (1092) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2007
473 ml can courtesy of matt7215. Pours a dark brown with thin, off-white head. Aroma is roasty malt. Flavor is roasty malt with nut and a hint of coffee. Er. excuse me, this is not an APA. This is a brown ale. Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than I would want from a brown. It isnít a Pale Ale. Not a bad beer but not a pale ale and only an OK brown.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2007
A dark amber with brown hues and a thick light moka head. Aroma is very nutty, caramel, fudge, very enticing. In mouth, a bit too much in your faces, but good nutty malt, with sweet coffee moka, and some burned toast bitterness. None of the hops expected, i guess its covered by the malts. A good brown ale, but this isnt an APA. However, still a good beer. Bought at LCBO.
