Clear and light copper in colour. Floral hops and sort of a roasted nuts aroma. Not as muted as other English ales tend to be but still sports a pretty quiet aroma. Fairly medium bodied but more expensive taste than expected. It is well hopped, especially in its style. Iíd take this brew over alot of other New World English styled ales that iíve had around these parts. Would be again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL bottle. Beautiful copper-orange colour, but not much head. Mostly bready malt in the nose, but there is a hint of earthy hops as well. Not bad, but not especially appealing. The flavour is better, especially once it warms a little. Nice maltiness, with just enough from the hops to prevent it from being one dimensional. Definitely an EPA, not an ESB.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle my non-beer geek family members raved about it. The aroma is citrus and grainy caramel malts. Nice full body & silky smooth. The taste is a lightly citrus zest & mild caramel with some breadiness. A very clean English style pale ale. A well made beer but not outstandinfg or anything.

Tried this beer on recent trip to Southern Ontario. It is one of the best beers I tried in some time. Not your typical pale ale, a bit less hoppy. Almost more like an English brown ale.

500 ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a cloudy amber-red. Smells malty, bread, toasted malt. Taste is the same. Very smooth, nice.

On tap at the Winking Judge in Hamilton, Ontario. Pours with little head and a darker amber body. Aroma has malt all over it, and in the taste there is a slight hops bitterness. Finish is clean and crisp, with a nice bite in the throat. Decent.

341 mL bottle. Pours medium amber with a white cap. Mild fruit, apple, pear, butterscotch and grain. Slightly sweet with just enough hop to balance out. Moderate body and carbonation. Not bad, just not all that interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Kensington Bistro, in Toronto. Was a bit afraid to order it when I saw PALE ALE in the menu beside the name of the beer. But itís actually a very decent beer. Was pleasantly surprised. Pours a nice amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet, some hops. Taste is a bit fruity, hops. Well-balanced.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2014 Bad skunky pour at Allenís patio on danforth. Southern Ontario skunk water on the nose. Dull wood on the tongue. This may be the pour itself. Will try elsewhere. Damn I hate this bar. They actually force you to order food.
Retried in bottle a year later & itís not much better. At least im not at Allenís. No skunk this time but there is still a dull sourness. A very English Pale Ale. Enjo

Rusty redish pour with a lacy head. Very little scent. Very easy to drink. Very very easy to drink. That just goes down so smooth. Thereís nothing outstanding here and I think thatís a good thing. This is just a good beer that goes down well. The waitress at The Black Shire recommended this at Lunch, came back at 1am to try it. She was right. What, itís 1am? No this hasnít affected my rating.
