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.

Thanks to Erik for this. Pours deep copper with a big frothy off white top. Aroma is caramel, floral and citrus hops. Taste is a smooth mouthfeel with sweet caramel coupled with some earthy and citrus hops. Very nice.

Lagerboy (1558) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
Bomber. Clear bright lighter copper, firm off-white foam settles and lasts. Aroma is mostly floral, citrus and pine. Foresty floral citrus hop forward taste, lightly sweet toasted caramel malts behind. Average carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Quite tasty but: NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Ferris (7659) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2014
Cask - Sweet orange and tropical fruit. Cloudy copper with a decent beige head. Muted tropical fruit, some Woody notes and a dry bitter finish. Smells divine, but cask kills the brightness of the hops. This is pretty normal and unfortunate.
Earlier Rating: 12/14/2014 Total Score: 3.2
Cask - Pale malts and some vegetal notes. Cloudy copper with a nice beige head. Nice light malts, light bitterness and a long finish. Very classic English style pale.
Earlier Rating: 9/6/2013 Total Score: 3.4
Draft - Grassy, grains and a bit of malt. Clear dark copper with a thin head. Dark malt, grain and a bitter finish. Nice ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oakes (13537) - 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.
