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.

500ml can pour. Pours a murky golden brown with a light peripheral white fluffy head. Nose is caramel, toffee, and a bit of orange. A touch of slight orange peel sweetness flavour-wise. A little bit of astringency in the finish. Crisp. Not too bad.

YigSvartka (295) - Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 7, 2016
Cloudy translucent golden appearance with a mid sized beige head containing commendable retention. Olfaction consisting of notes of sourdough bread, caramel, and citrus. Mid bodied for a pale ale. Citrus hops present throughout, particularly during the finish, as well as a malty caramel body. Hops are rather monotonous and could include more fruit and the malt could certainly be more flavourful as well. Not atrocious, nor ideal.

Can from BC Liquor Store on Hastings in Vancouver BC. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is slightly roasty malty/bready with a little fruit/spice. Med body. Flavor is roasty/bready with a hop spice counterpart. Not fruity. Towards dry and decently bitter. Sort of dull, but drinkable.

AgentAle (1541) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2016
Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, citrus and tart. Taste is sweet light malts, passion fruit, grapefruit, and light sweet malts. Finishes with a nice malt/hop balance. Smooth execution. Not overly complex but enjoyable. Appearance is a clear orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

DrNosha (1734) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2016
500ml Dose. Hellgelbes Bier mit leichtem Orangeton. Hoher fester Schaum. Schönes frisches Aroma nach Mandarine und Grapefruit, Basilikum und Zitronenschale. Antrunk unreife Honigmelone und Citrus. Dann sehr kräuterig, Hopfen und etwas Pinie. Der Geschmack ist vollmundig und lange anhaltend. Ein sehr frisches und gelungenes Pale Ale.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2016
Hazy dark straw color, almost golden with an orange hue, and some explosive subtle activity. Lightly creamy white half a finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with strong legs. Aromas of citrus, caramel biscuity feel, and fresh floral spices. Flavors of quality grains, bitter citrus with a lemon and lime feel, a hint of coriander, and really sharp herbal and floral hops. Highly grassy, low on sugar, but highly sour. Smooth slick light to medium body with perfect amount of carbonation. Strong and long finish, ending with a highly spicy and astringent citrus tongue coat, thick grassy feel with a hint of sweet roasted malt. Overall a good craft boosting complex tasty favors with an overly strong bitter citrus feel. Good freshness but a little vinous and boozy. Promising beer with a good look and body while missing some balance.

Kobold (38) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2016
Appearance: the foam waves a quick “hello” and then dashes underground into evening golden arms of wheat and cold amber. Aroma: A neck of perfumes ringed with pine needles and ice. Bitter apples and unripened pears scowl from a distance. Paper wrapped doughy grain bread hums a wholesome tune beneath. Taste: Only a tinge, or afterthought, of hop bitterness. There is a sweet, even numbing, tingle in the aftertaste preceded by orange slices powered in a thin layer of icing sugar. The orange “lemonizes” slightly, even grows a thin grapefruit rind skin. After twenty minutes smooth, if shy, pineapple slips into the picnic brunch. Mouthfeel: Unfortunately the foundation is a bit waterlogged, though it does not detract from the aromatics and lilting sweet citrus taste. Carbonation is near non-existent, and yet no flatness ruins the feel. Final Thoughts: Most memorable is the lightly electrifying, sugar tongue sparks from the aftertaste. The leather rimmed perfume-orange bouquet is also difficult to forget.
