Enjoyable pale ale that didn’t blow me away, but with its mild taste, went down smooth.

Tall can from BCL store in North Burnaby. A nice orange amber beer with a decent beige head, quickly collapsing. A bit of hop and plenty of malt here, with a long and lingering malted finish. A decent summer pale ale here. 3.2.
Oh..and cheap. Good beer for the money.

Pretty good, I don’t know why so many lower ratings. Pours a good amber colour with great lacing of the head in the glass. Aroma is slight pine, grass, maybe a bit soapy. Taste is pretty smooth with a good medium bitter but some caramel malty notes too

can from LCBO, always on the look out for an everyday Pale Ale.
This one is pretty good, fairly typical PNW style
Beautiful colour, and nice firm head.
Not too hoppy, kind of sweet.
Tasty , not the one I was looking for but I’ll go there again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml can. Pours a clear gold with an off-white head. Aromas are faint, mostly pine, light caramel, some malt. Slightly watery, with caramel, resinous hops, big mineral water notes, light juniper, and some grapefruit pith in the finish. Not bad, but very much OK. Better options are available at lower prices.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 mL can from LCBO via my bro served cold in a tulip glass. Clear deep amber with a nice light tan head. Peppery, bread crust, kinda dirty, rye, dry toffee, a touch earthy, resinous. Medium body, sparse yet prickly carbonation. Earthy, peppery, citrus, bread crust, dry toffee, rye malt; dry with some bitterness and a bready, lightly citrus finish. Not what I expected based on the name.

Has a slightly cloudy orange with nice carbonation, and average lacing. Delightful smells of sweet malts and some sticky hops. Taste is surprisingly nice with an almost creamy mouth feel a little thin overall, but not horrible

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ambré claire avec un petit col stable beige. L’arôme des agrumes et du malt. Le goût est d’abord du malt légèrement sucré, puis une finition d’amertume moyenne un peu sec.
