500ml can brought back from BC by a cousin. Thanks! Pour is a clear honey copper with a nice thick white head and good lacing. Aroma is fair bit of sweet caramel and toffee malt, lots of bread and cereal grains. Light pine hops. Taste is lots of bread, sweet but light caramel malt, a touch of pine hops. Mouthfeel is creamy, finish is sweet. Pretty nice beer, but too sweet for me.

Pours a coppery orange, with both moderate head and lacing.
Aromas of caramel malts, light citrus hops and bar-b-que chips.
Tastes of caramel malts, slightly toasted, piney hops, with just a touch if bitterness on the swallow.
Overall, a nice solid west coast ale, that is really quite enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL can. Amber with a soapy head of off white. Nose is herbal and spicy, resinous hops with a hint of citrus, layers of grainy sweet malt, honey and a touch of toffee. Balanced on the sweet side, with just enough hopping to prevent it from getting cloying. Malt driven English style Pale Ale with American ingredients. A little generic but not bad. Moderate plus body and carbonation. Quite clean.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not much smell from the can & light. From glass typical smelling west cost pale ale. Grassy bitter lemony maybe grapefruit also. Dark amber orange. Some carbination not alot. some head not a lot and some sticks around. Taste is bitterness from hops grassy lemony/grapefruity like maybe. Dry. Veary familiar beer. Like alot of other pale ales/IPA’s. Medium but a little heavy bodied. This beer is like others of the style. Doe’s NOT stand out on its own. Like a repeated beer. It’s fine but not what I would perfer thought. Cheer’s.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper in colour with a thin lasting white head, good lacing. The aroma is of caramel malts, some nuts and light hops. The flavour is more malty than hoppy, caramel and a light sweetness throughout. Sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a small hop bitterness and more caramel. A simple yet enjoyable pale ale.
500ml can from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario.
Best before September 19, 2014.

2014/06/26 - Pours a clear, copper colour with a rocky white head that quickly reduces to a surface film. Minimal lacing. Aroma is caramel, bread, grass, earthy hops and mild citrus. Taste is caramel and bread, with some earthy tones and mild citrus. Mouthfeel is medium with sharp carbonation and a dry, mildly astringent finish. Less hop forward than I expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can bought at the LCBO in Toronto/Canada. Overall a very very malty ale. Malt is what dominates this brew. Clear brown color, stable head, vanishes quickly but keeps a cover. Aroma is malt malt malt. Taste is malt malt malt. Almost no hops detectable. This beer reminds me a lot of Slovak or Czech malty craft lagers. The bitterness makes a cameo in the finish and aftertaste. Surprisingly tasty though it has no real hops presence.

Can- Deep orange with a billowing rocky cap. Leaves some nice leggins. Quite a malt forward nose with burnt sugars, resin, and some citric notes too.Bitter, but more sweet than Id like to see in the style. Its medium bodied, heavier than the alcohol would suggest. Long bitter finish.
