I tried this beer on October 17, 2011 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer pours a light golden orange ini colour with a thin tan head that lasts a while. Aroma is citrusy hops, caramel, and light fruit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is caramel, fruit, weak grapefruit, and a nice bitter finish. This would definitely make a great session beer.

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.

DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
CASK called "Crossroads" Pale Ale at Castro’s, hazy look, mild fruity aroma, fruity taste with a medium light body and light hops bitter making it perfect session.

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".

JesseM (1136) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2010
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.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
341 ml bottle - pours clear gold/green with a small whitish head that lasts for most of the glass. Aroma grainy, slightly chalky, grassy, herbal hops. Flavour is pretty straightforward, sweet pale malt in good balance with mildly lemony hops. Pretty decent "Canadian" Pale Ale (think Black Oak), and something I’ve been quaffing a lot of this summer. Great hot weather sessioner. It’s improved greatly since I last had it a couple years ago.

What’s to tell, bought a mini keg after having had it in the cans. Great beer, but buying by the can far more economical. 20 cent refund on the keg, get real...lol Buying one more keg so I can make matching patio lights. Definatly one of the great every day beers.

Spab (2124) - 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.
