Aroma is hoppy but light. Appearance Is a medium dark amber. Taste is good, has a nice light bitterness. Palate is medium for carbonation. Overall it is decent, would drink again.

50 cl can, Calgary, AB, Canada via Coop. Light amber, slight haze. Sweet caramel with malt and spice aroma. Sweet, more caramel, then a balanced bitter finish.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
So rebranding the banal caramelly 1990s amber ale as "session" because that word is trending? It’s either misinformed - there’s nothing sessionable about a cloying sweet 5% beer - or cynical. Insipid crap like this doesn’t offer one single reason to session it. No balance, no character you might want in a beer, and it’s leeching a really positive trend to sell terrible beer. One of the worst things I’ve seen out of BC in a long time.

vadie (631) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Couleur ambré/doré avec une petite mousse blanche. L’arôme léger du malt et houblon. Le goût me fait penser en une IPA très léger. Pas trop du corps et même pas très bonne. Je ne boirais pas plein. Dommage pour un ’session ale.’

clear amber. Nice aroma of sweet wheat. Taste of sweet with a touch of bitterness at the end. Not bad but would prefer something else. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2014
Rating #1006 - 1oz sample from leftover summer taster pack - February 25, 2014. Clear yellow pour with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is cornbready, sweet malts and grainy/grassy. Taste is a freight train of malt, medium bodied, with a tiny hoppy kick at the end to keep things interesting - grassy bitterness tempers the light bready malty sweetness. Decent.

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2014
Can: Poured a bright golden color ale with a generous head with good retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of light cereal notes with some sweet notes also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by light cereal notes with some light citrus notes and some sweet undertones notes also noticeable. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. I was expecting an even lighter beer considering the style but in the end this is enjoyable enough as it is.

Lagerboy (1185) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2013
355 ml can. Clear medium orange copper, lasting foamy off-white head. Muted aroma of caramel malt. Light caramel malt taste, some citrus, and earth. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. Nice enough sessional pale. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy amber color. Some malt aroma, but too light. The mouthfeel is very dry, and at this gravity also quite weak; the malt and caramel flavor has a moderate but appreciated biscuity side; ordinary bitterness, lightly metallic in the end. Not much hop character, although the Earl Grey Tea impression leads to think of bergamot.
Refreshing.

Regular, passable beer. Not very good and nothing remarkable to mention. Some bitterness, some sweetness. Below average.
