Thanks to Matt for this one! Liquide orangé qui flirt avec l’ambré. Moyennement translucide, une voile délicat m’empêche de clairement distinguer ce qui se cache de l’autre côté du verre. Mousse blanche très irrégulière qui colle plutôt bien à mon verre. Arômes terreux plutôt fades de conifères, de malts caramels, de miel, de rosée et d’aiguilles de pin. Je m’attendais certainement à des arômes plus affirmés et sûrs d’eux-même. En bouche le liquide offre un corps acceptable, plutôt mielleux et pas assez pétillant pour qu’on dise de lui qu’il est léger et suffisamment frais pour une bonne pale ale. Le liquide est bien dense, et me propose un éventail plutôt étroit de saveurs. Encore une fois, des notes terreuses qui s’acoquinent à un houblon en feuilles et du miel. C’est pas mal, mais pour écrire des lettres à sa famille. Amertume toute à l’image du reste: plutôt fade et sans intérêt véritable.

Clear amber pour, medium beige head. Aroma is peach, apricot, citrus zest and some nice cereals.. Good carb and mouth feel. Finish is fruity, and zesty, nice drinking, hoppy finish. A nice over all pale ale.

Aroma is citrus, clove, honey and sweet malts. Taste is light sweet malts,honey and tart. Some citrus, earthiness,grapefruit and slight sour notes. Appearance is a slightly hazy gold with a thin pearl head that retains quite well.

Un corps qui scintille, doré et mousseux. Un nez de conifères et de feuilles, bordé par des malts qui offrent quelque chose entre le caramel et le miel. Un goût de pin avec sa sève sur un lit de céréales toastés et limités en sucre. Une bouche normalement constituée: le corps, les bulles et la texture font le style. La finale plutôt terreuse est colorée par une légère résine. Pas mal dans les standards. Une bière un peu vieille école mais bien réussie.

Gawd bless Gibson’s. In fact I haven’t been there for some years and perhaps am surmprised that a brewery exists there but nonetheless it’s a prime spot ’long the Canadian pacific coast. This’un’s got fine antique white head and golden body, little carbonation. The aroma is all hops, not too strong, but not complex. Flavour is plenty of hops again and a dry finish. You know a friend of mine asked me why there was such this obsession with hops in the 21st century - after all, there was no real need for them, as hops helped preserve beer on long ocean voyages and we had many decades ago managed to figure out water purification; nonetheless it’s become more of a taste thang, these excessive hops, tho this isn’t too excessive as it seems. Nonetheless it’s fascinating that what we once drank out of necessity, we now drink out of luxury. Excuse me while I finish this and pour a Gin & Tonic....

Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops with light piney notes is quite nice. Taste is a mix of citrusy hops with some piney notes floral undertones and subtle light caramel notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Solid interpretation of the style.

650 ml bottle from Canada Craft club. Aroma: grapefruits, strong caramel from the malt. App: hazy orange, brownish, medium off white frothy head almost beige, thick bog lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, creamy, really subtle fruits, subtle bitter finish. Overall: American Pale Ale? Ah! Way too malted for an apa if you ask me. Not enough fruity. No dates on the bottle so could be old. Weird appearance for an apa On the other hand, good texture.

Je m’attendais à quelque chose de très fruité, mais c’est en fait très axé sur le sapin et les conifères. L’équilibre de ces notes avec celui du malt est franchement intéressant! Ce genre de bière assez maltée n’est pas dans mes préférées en général, mais les notes apportées par les houblons viennent ici changer la donne. Une bière qui, sans être d’un style méga original, est très réussie.

Bottle of "Persephone Pale Ale". Hazy copper. Airy cap that vanishes quick, leaving a skiff and spotty lacing. Aroma of juicy citrus, orange, grapefruit, melon, spruce. Taste is solid balance of citrus bittersweetness. Palate is quite clean, gently sticky, and a very long lasting "juicy" dry finish all from a medium carbonation. Solid.

This is a very good brew. Tons of citrus and light floral hops notes, well balanced with the malts too. Pours a light orangey amber with a thick, porous and sticky off white head. The aroma has tons of citrus fruits, grapefruit and light pine. Not too sweet up front with mild caramel notes. Very well done with tons of fruity citrus notes. Moderate bitterness is in balance.
