Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
I tried this on tap on a hot Summer day. Not as refreshing as I would of hoped. I found it extremely sweet, like corn and honey, and a little bit of citrus. There was little to no hoppyness, or bitterness. It drank more like a pop than a beer, with very little lacing or head. I expected a lot more from Pump House as I enjoy most of their offerings, but this was like no pale ale I have ever had, and I won’t be having it again.

Copper pour with a thin white lace. Not much aroma. Nice bitter hop flavour with hints of nutmeg and spices. Nice refreshing texture.

plaugher (409) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
On tap at the brew-pub. Pours a copper with a hint of orange, sparse head. A bit of light hoppiness on the nose. Slight citrus flavour (bit of grapefruit?), light, crisp, but nothing fancy. Probably good on a warm summer day though

ben4321 (5698) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Location: Draft at a restaurant in Saint John, 7/6/13

Aroma: The nose of this beer has grains, some hops, and bread
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color with a small head
Flavor: The taste is decently balanced, with clean, light-medium hops, and some malts
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has average carbonation, and a decent feel
Overall Impression: Overall, this is a solid pale ale (or pail ale if you prefer). Nothing amazing, but plenty drinkable.

JulienHuxley (5590) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2013
On tap at the brewpub and several pints at other locations across the province afterwards. Clear gold pour with a thin lacy white head. Grapefruity hop aroma, malty flavor, very light caramel notes, hoppy finish, really balanced. Not as exotic or eccentric as some of the top tier APAs out there, but this is a pretty solid offering.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
On tap at brewpub, pours a clear orangish copper with a white head that leaves nice lace. Smell has some citrus and floral notes. Taste is citrus and pale malts giving it a touch of sweetness. Overall it’s decent but could use less sweetness and more hops.

Spab (3380) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is pale malts and light citrusy/floral hops. Flavour has pale malts and grapefruit and floral hops giving a bit of a soapy character. Modest bitterness in finish. Slightly muted but pleasant.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 4, 2011
Draft at Pump House. This was like a milder version of the IPA. Citrus flavour with a medium hops. Very balanced. Not outstanding in any specific way, but somehow very good.
