3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big Rock should take the 6 hour drive to Kelowna and take a lesson on how to make an english pale ale in Western Canada. Faaaar better than the Big Rock equivalent. Bright orange amber, terrific aromas of citrus peel, floral hops, and something vaguely sugary. Excellent malt palate with generous hop character and a solid bitter finish. Very well done!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly hazed orange golden ale with a thick white lacing head. Nice malt with lots of grapefruits and floral hops, like I like them. In mouth, very nice balance of malts, caramel notes, and floral hops, oily mouthfeel, very quaffable! This is why I like West Coast ales so much. Merci JM!

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well-hopped which makes all the difference. They hit my nostrils and made me take notice. As before, pours a medium brown with unimposing malts. Alright head, good lace. An improvement over the old pale ale.
