COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A twist on a traditional English Pale Ale. Caramel and English Pale malts were combined with the floral, citrus, and grapefruit notes of the North American hop giving this ale a very distinct sensory profile.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Hazy amber, hoppy-toasty aroma, mellow bitterness, lots of caramel sweetness, not particularly bright. I like Powell a lot, but this isn’t one of their better beers.

To coin a pretty popular word these days, this beer is extremely "sessionable". Pours deep copper with small off white head. Nice citrus up from, some caramel and finishes slightly bitter. Mild carbonation, almost creamy. An Englsih style ale with a twist. My only knock is this beer lacks some complexity.

vadie (709) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
En fût à la brasserie. Couleur orange/caramel avec un col moyen blanc. L’arôme doux d’houblon et malt torréfié avec un peu d’agrumes. Le goût est du malt et caramel avec un amertume moyenne, mais légèr pour le style. Carbonation moyenne.

exeter (302) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2014
Poured out of a 1 litre bottle bought at the brewery for $9.75 Canadian. Look: It may be a pale ale but it pours dark copper colour. Smell: citrus, grapefruit, pine without being like a branch in the mouth. Taste: Toasted caramel malts, citrus near the end and a bit of bitterness. It’s easily a session beer, but enough complexity to feel like you’re still in special territory.

CapFlu (4518) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
(4oz glass) Sampled at the Great Canadian Beer Fest 2013. Pours a light yellow head with orange body. Nose is thin with a low bitterness. I’m somewhat surprised that this is BC Beer of the Year - but we are sampling a small amount, perhaps I need a bottle?

Sampled at the GCBF 2013. Hazy amber, off-white head. Aroma is pine, biscuit, light citrus. Taste is mineral water, pine, mild petrol. Fairly heavy mouthfeel, low carbonation.
