jonas (5844) - Garching b. München, - JAN 9, 2013
Tap at Spinnakers. Amber, tanned lace. Moderately hopped, sessionable indeed. Chewy yet light body. Pleasant enough.

kramer (5095) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear dark gold body with a small fizzy head. The nose is pretty nice, lots of tropical fruits and light biscuity malt. The flavor is light tropical fruits, thin caramel malt, nice soft bitterness on the finish that lingers nicely. Still fairly dry on the whole. Mouthfeel is light and airy with minimal soft carbonation. Some fruity hops lingering late on the finish as well. Pretty great beer, sessionable indeed.

CapFlu (4615) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
(Glass) Sampled at the brewpub. No carbonation. Nose of mild grapefruit. Good citrus base. Lasting bitterness is enticing. Average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (4998) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
Bottle - Nice grapefruit and some resin. Clear gold with a bubbly head. Nice little bit of bitterness and some light resin. A very simple but nice English style IPA that has a nice low ABV. Everything I expected.

WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
Bomber. Biscuity malt profile, and the hops are very grassy on the nose and piney on the innards. Feels hollow. I wouldn’t want another.

reebtogi (4386) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2012
Sampled at VCBW 2012 at the Salt Building in Vancouver pouring a pale golden color with a small white head and very little lacing. MIld grassy aroma with some light cereal grains. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness up front with an underlying malty sweetness. Light body and light carbonation. Slightly below average for the style, but a good session ale.

gramity (1449) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Orange color, deep and rich rusty orange. Aroma and taste were both heavy on the grains and bready. Lots of bitterness present and it was adequately hopped. Really reminds me of an ESB but does have different characteristics. Not sure how "sessionable" this would be for me.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle from Central City Liquor Store, Surrey
Hazy golden color. The aroma is breadish, strong, some cereals. The mouthfeel is dry; there is caramel flavor, with a mild character of bread cereals and vegetables; it has a quite strong bitterness, the hop providing a grassy touch.
I expected a beer with spicy yeast (Belgian) and fruity hop (American); instead this is a British Bitter.

650ml bottle. Pours brownish amber with thin head and lacing. Orange and piney hop nose, with strong caramel notes and an earthy/woodiness. Moderate bitterness with sweet toffee flavours later in the palate. Finishes a little muddy. Incredibly subtle and smooth, though -- you could drink this all day. This falls squarely between what you’d expect from an English session ale and a Northwest IPA. I’ll be back for more.
