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.

Pours a clear auburn, with ample tan head. Very good retention and nice lacing. Still a finger of foam, down half a glass. Aroma of caramel, nuts, light pine. Creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. The flavor profile is more toward the malts, sweet caramel, slightly syrupy with just a light dose of citrus hops. Overall a smooth pale ale that leans toward an English style bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a whole lot of good going on here. Some bittering hops, though not clear what. Ok malt. Easy palate. Golden pour. Light tangy finish. I’d skip. Tap at Drake.

Lagerboy (1931) - 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 (12682) - 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
