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.

LordUppity (26) - Surrey, British Columbia, - APR 8, 2006
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.

Luvystypotables (1060) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Aroma of malt with hints of pine resin and floral hops. Pours a caramel color with minimal head and minimal carbonation. Watery feel with a taste of floral hops, malt and pine resin, with a mild hop finish.

gnoff (8741) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2015
On June 21, 2015. At Steamworks Brewpub, in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Only on as "Pale Ale", but guessing this is where to put it.
Hazy golden color, white head. Hoppy, green, floral, sweet taste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Hoppy, fruity scent.

EtTuCthulhu (1375) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 29, 2015
The beer pours a very clear amber color with a medium white head. The aroma blends pils malt and grassy hops, and the taste is slightly sweet and a touch bitter with an overall flavor that’s very light and unoffensive. The palate fuses an average carbonation, light body, and a thin texture.

UXO (813) - CANADA - JUN 4, 2015
Pours clear pale gold with one finger of rocky white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate lacing. (3/5) Nose is light tropical fruit and pine, caramel/toffee malt, light citrus, honey. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Medium to light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mild bitter finish. (3/5) Surprisingly good for the price - I went into it with low expectations, and was pleasantly surprised. Body and flavours are on the light side, tending to the watery. Could definitely stand to be bolder. (12/20)

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2015
Can bought @ Berlin Braufest 2015. Orangée, col blanc. Arôme est légèrement citronné, agrumes, note de citronnelle avec un rappel de Cascade et des 3C. Palais est léger sur le houblon, malt pâle et pils avec un fini ponctué de belles notes fruitées. Caramel perce en fin de bouche et une petite note pâle. L’amertume est présente et contrebalance le profil plus malté. Simple et agréable, mais manque un peu de punch au niveau des houblons.

Saeglopur (1048) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAY 8, 2015
500 ml can as "Steamworks Pale Ale" bought at Craft Bier Fest Wien Tasting Sessions.
Clear, golden body, with a medium, frothy, lacing, off-white head.
Quite light aroma of grapefruit, flowers, candy, some peach, some pine, some soap.
Taste follows this, also quite light, watery, with a bit more biscuit malts.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes soft, medium bitter, zesty, piney, a bit sweet malty.

Quite boring. Much too light, watery. The hops are propably just noticeable, because the malt body is also pretty light. Not sure if the can is too old, or the beer itself is just brewed that thin.

Sebilinz (1060) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 5, 2015
Can. Hazy golden body with nice white head. Aroma is fruity and malty with hints of pines. Taste is also caramel malts with some citrus. Aftertaste is nice balanced between hop bitterness and malt sweetness. Nice one. There must have been a difference between the cans and the bottles.

Geiserich (3698) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle at Craft Bier Fest Tasting Sessions: Perfume aroma, malts. Flavor is also perfume with flowers, herbal hops. Not very good...
