3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
473 ml can.
Pours dark clear copper color with a large head. Aroma of pine needles, citric fruits, grape fruits also, caramel malts, even some faint licorice notes on the background. Quite Cascadian Dark like aroma. Flavor of sweetish fruits, caramel, some sweetish malts, resinous hops and grass. Strong carbonation, lingering harsh bitter palate. Quite nice aroma, and not too bad flavor either, very nice and interesting.

473ml can. Slightly cloudy, chestnut colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Malty aroma, earthy hoppy overtones, hints of coniferes, a touch of lavender, bath salt. Taste is grassy, earthy, bitter hoppy, dark malty basis, minimally roasty, spicy. Kind of a black APA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
473ml can. Pours a dark ruby/caramel with a fluffy, dirty off-white, one finger head that laces nicely. Aroma has notes of yeast, bread, citrus, caramel, and tropical fruits. A lot going on. Taste is a mild bitter with hints of bread, grains, caramel, and some tropical citrus blended with a lingering bitterness on the finish. Medium body and carbonation. Smooth and clean in the mouth making it easy drinking. Overall pretty good. A lot of flavour and big aroma creates a very enjoyable pale ale. Cheers!

purchased in a tall can from LCBO for $2.80. Decent price, decent beer, bitter finish. Overall good but not great. The brewery is a very good brewery, coming with some great beers, worth checking out what they have to sell at the brewery as they always coming out with some new stuff!

Cask - Caramel malts and earthy hops. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Nutty with some earthy hops and mild bitterness. Reminds me more of a classic ESB.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very decent pale ale. Mahogany in appearance, thick creamy head. Smells of freshly cut grass and some earth. Tastes earthy as well, a little bit of citrusy zing, some metallic notes. Picked this up in Toronto in 2013.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
473 ml can into a lager glass. Nothing traditionally pale about this, as it pours a very dark reddish-amber with a pillowy, lasting beige head and good amounts of lacing. Fruity nose with a bit of smokiness. Rich, caramel maltiness and a bit sticky on the palate. Pretty solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can (473 ml). Extra from TheJester, thanks Andy! Dark amber (almost brown) with reddish reflects, medium mostly lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma of fruity hops, malt, caramel, light smoked notes and resinous presence. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with caramel, resinous, fruity notes, roasted presence and light bitterness. Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Good American Pale Ale. Drinkable. Not to heavy. I liked it.
