Probably the best one they do. Find the batches inconsistent. Sometimes you get the pale ale lite that theyíre 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 Iíd like to see them push it a bit further.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very mild building to moderate butterscotch in the aroma. A nice amber colour, not a lot of carbonation, no head, little lacing. A little cloying on the first sip. That caramel/butterscotch is there in the taste again, but a bit sweeter. A decent bitter finish. Little thin overall, nowhere near full enough. Overall, OK, could be better.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Straw yellow with hint of orangecolor with no head. Aroma of caramel and citrus with a sweet citrus flavor with caramel, and bread. Quite sweet with little to redeem it.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is big on the caramel malts, itís pretty much all I smell, that and diacetyl. The flavour is also completely dominated by caramel malts with the hops only making a breif, lack luster appearance in the finish. Itís not horrible, but I donít see why I would drink this if I have a choice.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 arenít too spectacular. Think mediocre home brew.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
