COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

MrW (432) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2014
Sample at The Alibi Room, Vancouver. Aroma: malty, toast, caramel, summerfruits. Ap: poured amber, barely a head (but I guess thatís 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

culchiem (2620) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2014
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.

Darker than I expected, so it was a pleasant surprise. I prefer darker to lighter. I donít have a problem with this as a session beer. Fully diminishing head, light maltiness, and with hints of caramel. Not memorable but not bad. Iíll drink it again.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle, brought back for me by a colleague/friend. Medium amber brown, nice soapy head. There are toasty and fruity elements here that clash a little, the fruit being more like ripe banana than anything. It wasnít bad, but certainly muddled, and not my idea of a session ale (flavour wise).

Bomber. Pours light brown, small white head. Nose of... chocolate malt? Some floral hops, biscuit. Flavour is more chocolate malt, biscuit, caramel. Finish is more sweet than bitter. Half-way to a brown but Lowest Common Denominator for both styles. Will appeal to some tastes but not mine, a very muddled beer. I feel like an ass.
