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!

Frothmeister (524) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
473ml can. Labeled as "Crosswind Pale Ale". Pours a clear honey orange with an off-white head that disappeared immediately. Aromas of caramel malts, faint citrus, and a strong alcohol/chemical note that is slightly harsh, very much off-putting. The taste is sweet with decent malt notes, caramel, light fruit, woody and light floral notes, and hops that aren’t too spectacular. Think mediocre home brew.

ILduce (197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle from LCBO: Golden beer with nice head and lace. Aromas of citrus and toasted grains. Flavour is bready and malty with some sweetness. Nice mouthfeel and bitter end.

Gethinbeer (2070) - Musky, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
Golden pour with a thin lace and head. Honey malt flavour. Smooth texture. All together a bit sweet.

djjodskins (28) - CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
Decent pour, weak body for a pale ale, very light citrus notes. Sweeter malty finish, Lake of Bays ales tend to be too sweet and under attenuated for my tastes. Nothing special, not for me.

kevinsenn (977) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2012

pushkinwow (1842) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2012
Sampled at the brewery. Clear light amber with an off white creamy head. Mild and light malt with some hop characteristics, hint of lemon zest and grains. High carbonation, mild body, bit of apple and slightly bitter.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
Cask at C’est What, Toronto
Hazy golden color, small head. Light Ale, it has a moderate malt flavor, with a hint of crispness and a touch of toffee; correct bitterness; quite dry.
Pleasant, easy.

DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
CASK called "Crossroads" Pale Ale at Castro’s, hazy look, mild fruity aroma, fruity taste with a medium light body and light hops bitter making it perfect session.

solidfunk (2999) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Tastes like stale bubblegum. A weird musky kind of stale taste, strange hop profile without much smell at all. The caramel they talk about on the label is hard to detect. Bottle at no name bar
