MJGG (950) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011
Bouteille de 12 oz, rapportée par Suzanne. Arômes de levure anglaise (esters fruités, touche de pain frais), légère présence houblonnée. Robe cuivrée et limpide, effervescence moyenne et belle mousse qui tient bien. En bouche, la levure anglaise est très présente, avec ses esters fruités et sont côté rappelant le pain frais. Le malt est légèrement caramélisé, sans être trop sucré. On remarque une légère présence de houblon fruité, mais cette bière est vraiment déficiente à ce niveau pour une Pale Ale (et la bouteille est fraîche). Finale présentant une amertume d’intensité moyenne. Bof.

bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Nonic Pint. Appearance: Hazy amber with thin white head and just slight lacing. Aroma: Malty, with toast, caramel and butter, with just a very light citrus component. Taste: Buttery, toasted malts are dominant. There is a fairly strong bitterness at the end, but only very light citrus hop taste. Sharp aftertaste. Palate: Moderate carbonation with a fairly light body. Dry finish, but not in a good way. Overall: Pretty bitter for a Pale Ale, but they forgot the actual hop flavor. Plus, the malts simply aren’t very good. Unfortunately, this is not a good Pale Ale.

Pours a fading ring of beige head with a deep golden body. Aromas of malt and some floral hops. Flavor is caramel, malt, floral grassy hops. Finish is lasting malt sweetness.

ExpendableHero (748) - Florida, USA - APR 11, 2011
Hazy amber/orange brew with a decent white head. Aromas of hops, and mixed fruits. The taste is pretty simple: mild grassy hops, bits of floral hops mixed with hints of sweet grapefruit. Ends on a sweet, fruity note. Refreshing and quite tasty. The bottle art is solid.

I don’t know, but it just didn’t work for me. Decent malt, a bit of fruity hop flavor, but unbalanced, not a nice finish.
