COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hybrid US/UK pale ale.
With an abundance of hops and a sweet caramel backbone, this is a true session beer. A grassy, nutty and flavourful malt body is balanced by citrusy hops and a touch of spice. Clocking in at 34IBU’s, this beer is just bitter enough to keep the hopheads coming back without being crushingly dry or astringent.

Note: Also available dry hopped as Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy (AAXH).

Papillon (426) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2012
473 mL Can. Yellow-gold body with a thin white foamy head leaving lots of spotty lace. Resiny hops dominate in the aroma with notes of grapefruit rind and crystal malt, and a hint of pepper. The flavor is a nice balance of sweet malts and resiny "grapefruit rind" hops with subtle fruity notes of melon and citrus. Nice bitter almost peppery hop aftertaste tapering off to a light caramel finish. Bold, yet refreshing and not too imposing. This is some top-notch ale

Tessic (1191) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2012
This ale poured a med amber colour with a tall, bright white, foamy head. To the nose there are scents of spruce hops with a bit of citrus. light caramel malt and a little milk scent? First taste was smooth but flavourful with flavours of citrus hopps most prodominant. Medium bitter finish with hop lingering forever on the palate.

asheft (3109) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
[bottle at DwEEBs meeting] Metallic and sour aroma that is slightly enteric, with notes of cherries and base malt. Slightly hazy gold under lacy white. Slightly enteric and cheesy flavour with base malt, faint hops, and moderate bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Are you sure this isn’t a Trafalgar beer?

rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Style et résumé: American pale ale à 5,5% alc/vol de bonne facture.
Comment: Canette de 473ml. achetée en Ontario et reçue par Patrick.
Description: Bière dorée claire avec une belle mousse blanche crémeuse. Le nez est discret mais agréable avec un léger malt blond et une touche de houblon. Une bouche ferme houblonnée avec une finale amère. Une bonne bière facile à boire mais tout de même gouteuse.
Note: 6+ /10

SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
473 ml. Un liquide fortement doré. Une tête crémeuse mais assez petite. La naissance d’une dentelle. Des parfums houblonnés qui tardent à s’évaporer. Des relents citronnés avec ce qui me semble être des herbes. Une préesence maltée qui me rapporte au style. Des saveurs d’agrumes traversées par des céréales qui ne sont jamais trop douces. Une bouche de faible densité avec un pétillement soutenu. Une texture presque aqueuse. Une finale qui porte une amertume aux consonnances herbeuses. Facile à boire avec un profil houblonné assez franc.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2012
Can from the LCBO . Pours a golden orange with a bit of white head. Smell is sweet with a bit of a cartel hint and another hint of hoppiness. Palate is a bit high with average carbonation. Taste is a bit watery at first but then a bit of sweetness comes which quickly balanced by some hoppy bitterness. Not bad overall.

3.5
Metalchopz (3472) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
Single can at the Orleans LCBO. Pours a clean golden-amber colour with a foamy off-white warm cap that leaves a soapy top and lacing. Mild hop nose at first, but eventually, becomes malty with caramel, bread and fruit. Medium-bodied and kind of smooth. The hop is present in the taste as well, and mild as well. Adds grapefruit notes to the caramel malts and some nice light dryness in the finish. Pretty good session American Pale Ale, well-balanced between hoppy, but not too much. Overly refreshing.

Pours golden amber with frothy head from cans at LCBO. Aroma is light and taste has that good light bitterness with a smooth mouthfeel.
