2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very average tasting pale ale. Extremely light in color. What can you say when there are very few choices to pick from?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear ruby amber color. Smells of mashy hops. Coin like metallic taste. Palate carries the copper metallic taste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear pale copper body with a small frothy off-white head, nice retention. The nose is floral hops with some dry toasty, biscuity malt. A light touch of caramel. The flavor is dry biscuity malt with some light English hops and a little residual sweetness on the back end. Mouthfeel is a bit clingy with fizzy soft carbonation. Pretty decent stuff, solid for the style.

Great colour, copper, which is unusual for the Pale Ales I've tried. As with most Pale Ales the bottle describes a "ample hop character" which I am unable to taste. In saying that, this beer is quite good, just mild and low hop flavour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of banana bread that pours nice copper colour. Malt flavours predominate, very little bitterness to match but rather easy drinking all the same. Cheers!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap. Pours a dark copper color with light head. Aromas of corn, very light burnt sugar, and malt. Flavours are similar with addition notes of sourdough. Quite unimpressive.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty underwhelming pale ale. Smells like almost nothing with a faint taste of malt. Has some well-disguised hops that comes through a little on final aroma. Pours pale orange with some lacing, a little head. Finishes a little sour. Average carbonation. Sample at brewery.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mousse beige moyenne qui si dissipe rapidement sauf pour un très petit bout qui reste longtemps. Couleur roux/ambrée avec le carbonation moyenne. Nez de malt, caramel, et houblon. Dabord un goût de malt très légèrement sucré ensuite un amertume légèr d’houblon. C’est pas creux ni aqueux, une surprise pour le style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pale amber with goldish tint. Caramel and mild spice aroma (think salt and pepper), a bit doughy. Mid-range bitterness with sweet, fruity/floral finish. Light-medium body, slightly creamy, average carbonation. Not long ago this was the only local alternative to the big brewers you would find on tap at most Victoria pubs. Smooth and sessionable, I admit I may have given this bonus points out of sheer nostalgia.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Pours amber with a diminishing white head and decent retention. Aroma is caramel, light hops. There’s a ton of caramel flavour in the body which lingers through to the finish, with some other bready/biscuity flavours. A little bit of hop presence to cut the sweetness. Quite boring and unimpressive.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I’d love to give this points for hometown pride, but can’t. I don’t like this. The commercial description claims it’s bronze and yep that was the strongest flavour for me -- like licking bronze. This is too weak in flavour and aroma otherwise, surprised it’s 5%.
