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!

Metalchopz (2724) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2011
Came in the OCB Discovery Pack 9 at the LCBO, for summer 2011. Honey coloured (golden with a hue of amber) with a big frothy slightly off-white head that has good retention and dirty lacing. Nice fresh grain scent (biscuit malt) with some mild piney hop well-balanced in the back to add some character. Smooth medium-bodied, not to be too watery, but still be refreshing. Mildly sweet malt with some fruity notes and a lightly dry finish. A pretty good, above average Ontario Pale Ale.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle brought from Kingston by Robbie. Pale orange amber. Soft stone fruit hop aroma and flavour, sweet malt, low-medium bitterness. Quite sessionable.

strowlands8 (178) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2011
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.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2011
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!

lukin (540) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2011
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.

FlashParker (85) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2011
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.

this is like a light IPA. i enjoyed it, though it was a little light it was still nice. this would be a good session IPA.

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

AWS9 (582) - 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 (3401) - 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.
