Ughsmash (7001) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Bottled. Poured clear caramelly-amber with a short-medium cap of white head. Sweet, fresh caramel, toffee, pine needles, lemon, and grapefruit notes all come across in the very pleasant nose. Flavor was primarily hop-focused... with pine needles and tangy citrus bitter notes all the way through... soft caramel base... some floral bitterness, too. Long light fruit and piney bitter finish. Quite bitter overall and felt good on the palate... soft caramel base balanced it well. Good stuff!

HogTownHarry (5983) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2006
Bottle (341ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev. Slightly amber gold pour smallish head. Quite a hoppy aroma - light spruce, a bit of resin, plenty of herbal character - with a sweet caramel malt core and a hint of apricot. The taste is pretty straightforward, bitter spruce/orange-grapefruit pith bitterness with some sweet malt carrying it -- average body, lightly astringent, a hint of acidity, okay carbonation, with a quick finish - pretty nice, but more of an APA than an English Strong, I think.

Crisp without losing any of the flavour. A very nice bitter finish. Hoppy aromas.

CapFlu (4350) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2006
(341ml bottle) Purchased at the BC Liquor Store on Cambie for $1.77. Pours a thin, white, frothy head and a copper body. Nose and flavour is herbal, hoppy and tinny with undertones of fruity. Average.

BeerandBlues2 (9068) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUN 7, 2006
341 mL bottle from presario. Pours deep copper with a small bright white frothy head that somewhat diminishes to a patchy film, some lined lacing. Aroma is fruity hops (berries) and yeast (sweet dough), malt (cookie) with some grass and hay notes. Mild bitterness and acidity, some fruitiness, sugars, malt and yeast stand out, finish is mild berries. Light bodied, smooth and clean palate.

DuffMan (6146) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 19, 2006
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!

blankboy (5797) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Presario. Pours a clear golden-orange with a big lasting foamy white head. Nice mild aroma of citrus and floral hops along with a touch of fruit. Flavour of sweet malt with a nice hoppy finish. Medium bodied. A simple but pleasant Pale Ale.

Lubiere (9423) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2006
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!

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2005
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.
