COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth tasting, medium bodied ale with subtle spice notes and a lingering dry, hop bitterness on the finish.

caramel, grass, spruce, amber, clear, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, bitter, long finish Amber pour with fast falling white foam. Be quick to catch aromas because they disappear fast. Caramel and grass at first, then hint of citrus after a minute. Taste is more sweet than bitter. Average carbonation and slick mouthfeel. Finish is slick with an astringent, slightly metallic after taste that lingers. Not great.

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.

vadie (800) - 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.’

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2014 355 ml can from a sampler twelve-pack, served in my NHL Coyotes pint glass. Pours a nice medium amber with light haziness, and a bone-white cap that settles in interesting, asymmetric fashion, like a root beer and ice cream float/soda. I noticed light carbonation through the haze. Aroma is strongly lemony and citrusy, along with noticeable pine; I was a little fearful it might taste like Lysol or Pine-Sol. Flavor is nicely lemony and light floral and piney hoppiness, with clean, pleasant ale bitterness. Nicely bodied, and the citrus lingers pleasantly. An interesting take on a session pale ale...easy-quaffing and refreshing, and the hops aren’t overly challenging for the uninitiated.

Oakes (12788) - 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.

Pours light copper with a small white top. Aroma is spice and earthy hop, rather unpleasant. Taste is better with earthy, caramel malts with light hop bitterness.

MunBro (510) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2014
Tree brewing has a lot of great beers; this is not one of them. Pour had almost no head, left no lacing. Very flat and watery mouthfeel, primary flavour was syrupy malts. Not the best.

exeter (357) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Pours a 2 finger head and a bronze colour. Taste is sweet and fruity (citrus), with biscuity undertones. Has some spiciness and a mild hoppiness.

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

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.
