COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lake of Bays Brewing Company Pale Ale is a light-coloured beer that’s full of natural flavour! Sweet caramel malt tones are balanced by fresh hop aromas and just a hint of roasted grain. Enjoy!

Pours a nice peach colour. Aromas are promising... nice sweet citrus. Flavour is a let down. Thin, flat, and watery with a hint of citrus. I’ve got a bottle of zombie dust in the fridge that will kick this beers ass.

473ml can. Pubily British in its quaffability but with a distinctly North American bite to the finish. A decent session ale.

Canned sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of grainy pale malts, caramel, orange marmalade, and a hint of lemon. More sprouted grains and caramel focused flavours in the mouth, backed by sweet citrus, cut grass, and white pepper. Moderate bitterness and medium bodied. A simple malt/caramel focused APA, but clean and serviceable overall.

Poured clear light gold colour. Seemed heavily carbonated, but had a nice thick head. Sweet hop aroma with a little grass. Medium body with some citrus. I was expecting more hop flavour. Refreshing and drinkable, but was lacking something.

smells like citrus(orange,lemon)from the hops with a little spice and some maltyness. It’s that but the malty backbone is of carmel taste. Heavy bodied. 6/10 cheer’s.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a big thick white head. Aroma is grainy and grassy malts. Taste is grassy notes with faint straw. Fairly boring

Not the best LoB offering, a little bit lacking in some areas. Good looking beer, nice deep golden colour with a decent white frothy head that laces well. Aroma has a biscuity edge, with a little caramel that borders on being butterscotch. Lacks a little hop assertiveness that a pale ale should have IMO. The palate is ok, biscuity and malty in the middle with some ale fruitiness and a little bitterness (nowhere near enough citrus to be an AIPA) in the finish. Overall, probably not one I would buy when I can have Devil’s Pale Ale for the same price point.

A 330ml bottle, poured a slightly hazy amber colour, not much carbonation, thin cream head, ample lacing. Caramel malt and citrus aroma, Malty taste, sweetness balanced with moderate bitterness. Very drinkable.

Probably the best one they do. Find the batches inconsistent. Sometimes you get the pale ale lite that they’re aiming for; other times you get Ontario skunk water twang (think steamwhistle). I drank & will drink again -- and will drop by brewery few times a year -- but I’d like to see them push it a bit further.
