Fresh from the brewery, nice light hoppy aroma, flavour is really fresh and crisp with a nice amount of hop bitterness. Not the biggest hop flavour, but really clean and well done. Great summer beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle, 5% a/v
Pours light gold with a generous white head. Looksgood! The aroma is slightly hoppy, with citrus and spruce notes. A bit of biscuity malt balances it out. The taste is also hoppy, but balanced well with some caramel malt, the aftertaste is largely where the malt shines through and does so well!
Good beer Lake of Bays!

bottle. Amber pour. Aroma of bready malts, a little fresh hoppiness. Taste is straightforward, a little too sweet for a pale ale. Could do with more hops. Still, decent first offering from a new brewer.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Innisfil, Ontario, Canada.
Amber pour, but not a deep colour. White, think head. Biscuit malt nose, but everything here is faint. Not much pine; I want my Pale Ale smelling like a waxed baseball bat! Medium bodied, pleasing carbonation. Smooth. Defined sweetness here, and a little artificial. Thatís a disappointment. Iím lukewarm on this entry; not bad pale ale, but not near the top of the pack, either.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Bottle. Grassy hops, mild bitterness, some malt backing. Solid all-around pale ale. RE-RATE: Knocking this down a couple pegs, as the hoppiness came off a bit stale in a can, but still solid.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear, fairly deep golden with a fair white froth.
Aroma: Nice biscuit malt, some light fruitiness, a bit of peppery, pine hops, toasted cereals, overall, straight forward and nice.
Palate: Medium body and carbonation, a bit of Pils-like smoothness.
Flav.: Similar to the nose, a bit more hops, the malts are a little darker, a bit less fruity and a bit more toasted, the hops remains leafy and a bit peppery, good; dry with decent bitterness and a light malt/mineral finish.
Not a bad offering from this relatively new brewer.

A golden amber ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, biscuitty malt with light barley sugar and faint hops. In mouth, a classic pale ale with good biscuitty malts, lightly sweet, and nice light floral hops. Quite honest and good. Thanks probstk!

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2010 Bottle thanks to Cratez-Deep golden pour, has a two finger eggshell cap with some lace. Nice floral hop nose with fruity malts, some citrus.Sweet fruity flavours lead to cirtic bitterness. Medium-light bodied, nice lenghty bitter finish. Good stuff.
