COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
A light refreshing pale ale designed for the discerning session drinker. Pale Gold has a floral/spicy aroma derived from the finest American hops. A beer that drinks higher than its modest alcohol content would suggest.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
Pale golde pour covered by a tight white cover. This feels like a middle-of-the-road blonde with the usual grainy and strawy malts and a sloppiness to go far beyonds. The dryness seems to come mostly from its minerality as its hops are quite devoid of aromas besides the mildest floral feel. No nonsense and no surprises.
