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 aren’t 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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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
