COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Plenty of British Crystal malt in the grist lends this ale its rich color, its caramel maltiness, and adds the occasional whiff of toffee to the nose. An addition of American and German hops to the kettle at the end of the boil is used to suffuse our Pale Ale with a gently spicy hop finish.

Pours a crystal clear amber with a very thin ring of white head, little to no lace but decent legs. Aroma is somewhat faint but I’m getting light caramel, light grass, and faint fruity esters. Flavour is citrus, grass, mildly spicy, mildly bitter, sweet caramel and a touch watery.

A pretty decent Pale. Not Top Tier by any means but very drinkable. Pours a clean, medium amber with a frothy, quickly dissipating white head. Smells of nice tropical fruit hops, pineapple, mango and papaya. Taste is simlar with a bit of background cereal malt happening. A little thin in the palate department but it leaves a nice fruity aftertaste.

Cirrhosis (1209) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
I like the bottle, and so does the wife. Smells like acceptable disapointment. Dusty malts, and a metalic hop. Taste is the same really, bready, mild bitterness, and pennies. This is one of those beers thats perfectly fine to drink but if you stop and think about it its not that good. So much bread.... this beer makes me sad.

Une blonde pâle où il y a pratiquement absence de mousse, mais le voile qui y flotte trace une dentelle menue.. Au travers le houblon résineux, du poivre et des arômes fruités. Le houblon est bien efficace, même si son amertume est de courte durée. Il y a un goût de conifère, des saveurs de malt et de sucre. Bien ordinaire. Sans défauts ni qualités évidentes. (1181-100814)

brokensail (10961) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 26, 2014
On tap @ Steamworks. Clear light orange pour with a white head. Aromas are grassy and orange heavy. Some light pine, cracker, and a touch of caramel. Toasted bread, too. Flavor leans more toward the malts. Decent citrus (orange), but more of a marmalade flavor. Bitter grass and pine, as well. Some cracker, bread, and caramel malts, too.

355ml brown bottle. Clear, deep golden colour. Thin white cap, ok lacing. Nose has some citrus and some sweet malt. Taste has caramel malts, orange peel hops. Some orange peel aftertaste and modest bitterness. Pleasant, easy drinker.

MunBro (364) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with very little head that disappated quite fast. Odd palate. Very syrupy caramel malts and some funk. Minimal hop notes. Not great but not awful, either.

DuffMan (6752) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2014
Can, shared with Robbie. Pale gold, average white head. Aroma is subdued, grains and grass. Bready pale malts with a kiss of grassy hops, ending with modest bitterness. Just ok.

500ml can. Gold colour, small head. Bread malt aroma. Mild hop flavour. Overall, pretty generic.
