3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 ml bottle from a winter assortment twelve-pack from Sobeys Liquor outlet, served in a pilsner flute. Pours a very attractive, sparkling clear orange-amber, with low carbonation and a fluffy white cap that leaves bubbly streaks of lace. Aroma is mild floral hops and faintly sweet malt; flavor is much the same, with hops so soft this pale ale could stand in for a lager. A small amount of body is present, and leaves a generally clean, slightly dry finish. Okay, but it’s lacking in any noticeable ale "snap".

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper in colour, malty smell. Hints of vanilla in the taste with low hop levels for a pale ale. Not what I would call a traditional Pale Ale in flavour.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
341ml bottle poured into a snifter around 6 degrees. Pours a clear copper topped by a finger of lacy white head. The nose is grainy and grassy with a slght roasted nuts back end. The taste is once again grainy with the hops coming through nicely with the roasted malts. The density is interesting and the finish is pretty fry. Cheers!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Une mousse plus ou moins persistante se pose sur une robe cuivrée et assez limpide. Des céréales grillées, du caramel brûlé et des houblons terreux forment un bouquet très ordinaire. La platitude se répète en bouche, la bière étant trop sucrée pour être appréciable.

On tap. Artificial light syrup and bready aroma. Some almond flavouring and a soft lightly sweetened palate. Bit of a nothing beer really

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a nice deep copper color, hardly and carbonation though. Smells VERY malty... not what I expected on a "pale ale". Taste is sweet at first, like carmelized corn syrup. Transitions to the hops, but it’s all resin bitterness and no hop oils for flavor or aroma. Clean drink mostly, but not a pale ale.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Copper, white fluffy head. Smells grainy, and rather bland. Tastes even more bland. Beats drinking macro piss lager I guess.
