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!

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. That’s a disappointment. I’m lukewarm on this entry; not bad pale ale, but not near the top of the pack, either.

Pretty light beer, light flavour, golden colour. Nice offering from a new brewer. I would have this again

AWS9 (549) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2011
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.

probstblueribbon (3300) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2010
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.

Lubiere (11155) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2010
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!

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2010
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.

mabel (7315) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2010
[3356-20100821] Tap. A little buttery aroma has mild corn on the cob notes. Clear, light yellow brown body with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Mild grains and corn in the flavour with a hint of floral butter. Medium body. Fairly mild and drinkable but boring.

Spab (2802) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2010
Bottle at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. Pours a clear golden colour with tiny white head. Aroma is pleasantly citrus with light graininess. Flavour has light-moderate citric hops with a mild graininess. Some mellow bitterness in finish. Nothing too special but quite sessionable and a nice showing for a brewery’s mainstream/flagship beer.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2010
Lovely, simple ale. Slightly sweet aroma, clear orange tinted pour with a small head. Very smooth with a malty sweetness. Finishes clean. Great session ale and a nice taste of cottage country.
