2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale straw colored pour, big frothy head, watery lacing. Aroma of light pine hops, with tinges of citrus. The malts smell cheap, and honestly smell like a cheap brew at home kit. body is a tad watery, and the mouthfeel is a little soft.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can from the LCBO. Transparent amber straw body with thick creamy off-white head. Aromas of pine, fresh-cut grass, citrusy aromas and lime zest. Percieved bitterness is lower than expected based on the ever-present hop aromas. Very sessionable and light to medium bodied.

On draft. Orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of rocket candies, and icing sugar. Flavors are a blend of sweet orange, pink grapefruit, and stale light malts. Moderate bitterness. A bit too sugar-sweet and light bodied overall.

Tall can, shared with phantomhennes, heavyleavy, and TvM at game night. Light orange amber, average white head. Mild caramel, hints of citrus, tea-like bitterness. Quite thin, unexciting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a nice deep orange amber with a thin foamy head. Subtle hoppiness with no aftertaste. For myself a basic IPA that goes well with a summer evening. Not outstanding but would recommend for those who wish a lighter IPA.

Can from the LCBO.
Pret ho hum pale ale, good but not great.
Nice colur and aroma, just a bit of a let down. But that said still highly drinkable. I am finding that the "pale" ale catagory is a very tough one to stand out in.OK but not my goto in this catagory.
