Served on tap (non dry-hopped) and cask (dry-hop variants). A great session Drop of lotion to oil all the parts. Summer ale brewed all year round. An extremely pleasant, straw colored beer with a gorges fresh, hoppy aroma. This, coupled with an ample bitterness, leads to a long, dry finish.

Oakes (13594) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Bubbly head, light amber, just a touch of haze. Aroma is actually not strong, light, lacks bitterness, but the hops are just fruity and the slightly doughy pale malts are probably the best thing about it. Ok, but I was disappointed by this one.
