A bright copper coloured pale ale with a toasty malt base balanced with west coast hops. Its light to medium body and clean, dry finish gives this full-flavoured ale dangerously inviting drinkability.

Nice APA! Has a sweet nose of toasted malts and hops. Flavour follows through, nice balance betwee toasted malts and midly fruity hops. Has an almost sweet note of honey.

It was okay, not great. Not an award winner. I’d probably not buy it again.

Bomber. Clear copper little head. Dull on the nose, faint sweet malt. Roasted malt, sweet caramel and slight hoppy character. It’s slightly reminiscent of some big box brews with syrupy malt.

Sample at The Alibi Room, Vancouver. Aroma: malty, toast, caramel, summerfruits. Ap: poured amber, barely a head (but I guess that’s not the fact in beers over here...), but the little head left some marks on the glass. Taste: again summerfruits, citrushints. Weak mouthfeel at the end. Dry bitter finish.

Not sure why this is a Session beer. Alcohol same as any ale with high side of malts. From the bottle. Pours cloudy dark amber, was expecting a little tone. Smaller head, little lacing. Smell is malty with burnt caramel and sweetness. Taste is malt forward, bland watery middle and a hop bitter sweet finish. Great if you like malty beer, not my thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at The Alibi Room. Clean amber with a thin head. Aroma is medium caramel. Flavor is zesty caramel, a little fizz on the tongue. Dry nutty caramel finish.
