2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap. Pale straw. Bland and inoffensive. Nothing that fits a pale ale. As others have noted, more of a blonde.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours Clear gold, looks like a blonde ale or Pale Lager. It tastes bland, but itís Inoffensive and very drinkable. Very light citrus hops, some grainy malt, overall not much complexity. Iím surprised to find this under the "American Pale Ale" category here. I donít know if thatís just going off the label and RateBeer hasnít corrected it yet, it definitely closely resembles a lighter blonde ale.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Certainly not an APA. A weak blonde, at best, and even then, sheís probably had work done. Plastic surgery jokes... The Joan Rivers of blonde ales. This has the same weak connection to pale ale that Alexander Keiths and Labatt keep masquerading. This works as a plain-jane blonde, light malt character with hardly any hoppy overtones. Pours clear, golden with a bubbly weak white head. Nothing offensive, but nothing to write home about.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Tastes like another average lager. Better than the black label at the Cambie here, but not really worth the extra $2 for a pitcher though. Pours blond.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Calgary International Beer Fest. Pours clear gold with a medium, creamy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is biscuit and cracker malt, light butter, spicy hops, and apple esters. Flavor is malt with light hops and bitterness, fruity esters and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at gargoyles. Bleached straw colour with minimal, hobo-jizz cap. As this beer is poured from a pitcher, I smell puke. Actual puke, from a gluttonous buttered pasta feast. The high carbonation doesn't help the wet malt taste. This is pretty awful.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught at Maloneís Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Blond color, with creamy head (nitro-like). Remarkable for the near-absence of aroma and flavor, very water like; smooth.

355 ml can from a friend. Pours bright golden, with decent white head. Small floaties. Highly carbonated. Kinda like Molson Ex.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
As a pale lager, this is half decent. Better than most out there, I think. As an American Pale Ale, this is complete garbage. Completely and absolutely miscategorized. If you can ignore the label and drink this in the right setting, you might enjoy it.
