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!

Draft: sampled at brewery 7/3/10: Misnomer; this is definitely a cream ale and a decent one at that. Taps a clear gold with a 2 finger white cap - fair retention, decent lacing, moderate carbonation. Nose is malty-grainy, light fruits, some grassy hops. Medium-light body, rounded mellow character. Flavor profile has lightly sweet malts out front then some fruity pear-apple tones and mild hop balance...clean finish punctuated by great hop-malt balance, light bittering right at the end. Boilerplate lawn mower ale, fresh tasting, easy drinking and refreshing

Bottle from LCBO - very simple 2-row pale malt with little or no specialty malt. Good first beer from this brewery.

2010-07-14. Crisp golden yellow small white head and lace 3+ Modest bitterness throughout mild biscuity malt. Very light lemony citrus with floral accents. Mild aroma, muted hops and mild grainy malt. Very light floral notes to the hops. 6+ Decent but a bit too mild overall. On tap at East Side Mario’s, Huntsville.

Clear yellow pour. Slight diacetyl nose up front with a little bit if floral hops and some sweet malts. A little bit if apple and pear even a little corn. Semi bitter finish with another faint hint if hops. Just what Ontario needed another run of the mill pale ale. Sheesh.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & biegaman -- c/o biegaman. Pours a clear pale gold with an average size diminishing white head. Aroma: Not bad, there’s actually some hops along with caramel malt. Flavour of light hops, caramel malt and an average bitter finish. Nothing exciting but for Ontario this is a pretty decent Pale Ale.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2010 On tap at the Griffin Gastropub in Bracebridge. Poured a nice deep golden with a small white cap. The aroma has some nice hop presence to it that I wasn’t expecting, along with some decent pale malt aspects. Flavour hits with moderate hop flavour followed by some tasty grainy sweet malts. Finishes mildly bitter, nice crisp feel to it, I can kind of see what they were going for with this one. Really above my expectations for it and I hope the excessive ads for this brewery around the Muskoka’s pays off for them so they can brew some more interesting things.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
341ml bottle shared by biegaman with me and blankboy. Clear gold with a sticky white smallish head. Initially buttery aroma, smooths out to an interesting floral/perfume light hop and tart fruit / bready malt thing goin’ on. Taste - sort of floral, but man it tastes a lot like a tart strawberry/rhubarb pie, right down to the lardy flaky crust. Light body, a bit chewy, mildly acidic, almost stinging mouthfeel, finishes quick with a dry, slightly bitter aftertaste. Oddball beer, but I liked it, apart from that bit of buttery diacetyl off the top.

341 ml bottle form jimmay. pours clear golden with a lasting white head. minimal pale malt and citrus nose. the flavour is also quite basic, like a very tame APA. clean and drinkable but really "safe".

341 ml bottle from the brewery. Stopped in at the brewery, looks awesome, a great set up. Definietly recommend stopping by if you’re at all in the area! Pours pale golden in colour, moderate white head. Mildly sweet and mildly hoppy aroma and taste. Good first beer for this new brewery, should be good for dinking on a hot summer day!
