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).

This is my favourite beer. I’m so excited that it’s in cans now so I can enjoy it at home!!!

Papillon (424) - 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

Tap at Burger Bar. Pale golden pour with a thick tight head. The nose is fresh and hoppy. Bright orange and grapefruit citrus over a very clean crackery pale malt base. Fresh and crackery with a nice bright malt expression. Really damn tasty.

DerWeg (1750) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
Rated version cask AAXH - "Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy" from hops added to cask. "We recently decided to try three new hop combinations for our most recent batch of cask – Citra, Amarillo and Saaz." - August 2012. Well this cask pint is mellow and rounded with nice alefruit, no English mustiness, and a pleasant zing of citrus and lightly bitter hops. AAXH deserves the session ale qualification even at 5.5% because it’s gorgeously drinkable and still full-flavored enough that I don’t drain my glass in five minutes like water. At The Only Café, Danforth and Donlands Toronto.

garthicus (2963) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 8, 2011
UPDATED: APR 17, 2011 Augusta Ale - Burger Bar Appearance: golden orange, very little visible carbonation & a small snow white head.  Aroma: quite a grassy nose at first, mildly spiced with some good malt & woodiness.  Flavour: Grainy & grassy up front, quite a nutty undertone with hints of spices. Quite flavourful with an enjoyable malt finish. It’s quite sessionable indeed!
