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.

On tap at Steamworks. Clear copper appearance with a thin head which leaves some lacing. Seems more like an IPA, with it’s distinct hoppy taste. Aftertaste was a little too rough for my liking. Overall an average that I would like to try again for a second opinion.

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 (10914) - 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 (352) - 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 (6736) - 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.

piscator34 (1964) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 28, 2014
Canned sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of mild orange and white grapefruit peel, along with some faint toasted malt. More mild citrus in the mouth, mixing with some grainy malt and floral notes. Definitely not the most complex or hoppy APA out there, but it’s refreshing and devoid of off flavors. Ok overall.

Some hop presence here, but the beer rep shouldn’t have said it was almost an IPA. There is some bitterness, but on the milder side of craft APAs

Not bad... Really nice lacing. Some grain and malt aromas. Flavors are hoppy..but nothing special.
