This is our flagship beer. Medium body, beautiful golden colour, good mouth feel and a refreshing hop finish. We use six selected malts and five different kinds of premium hops. This recipe is secret, but the Pale Ale is very tasty and hoppy.

thorongil2 (2755) - , Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2011
(bottle) clear medium amber colour with small white head; aromas of candy, fruit; flavour is a letdown after the aroma - simple, mineral/ashy; with long medium bitter/mineral finish

Bottle OCB Sample pack. Pours clear golden amber with thin white head. Floral hop aroma. Light bodied, quite smooth. Restrained bitterness in taste. Not a fan of this beer style, but this more acceptable than most.

A proper pale ale. Nice bitterness and balanced malt. Refreshing but not overly light. Very solid brew, this would do the trick for me very often.

Quite nice actually, it is very smooth, light bitterness and overall it has a very flavourful taste. I would purchase this again

This beer poured a medium brown color, smaller head, aroma is very floral. Beer has a smooth texture to it. This has some hoppiness to it but trails off, needs a little more. Only 5% so I can drink a few and be content, vs some higher ABV hoppy beers I have had.

Le liquide est dor et sa tte mousseuse est blanche. Une faible rtention est observe. Quelques traces restent colles au verre. Au nez, notes herbeuses et vgtales avec la prsence dun malt doux. On croirait mme, une fois les yeux ferms, quelques effluves grills. Le got est correct, plus malt quhoublonn, avec une amertume quon aurait voulu un tantinet plus mordante, voire plus efficace. Ceci dit, en bouche, le liquide est de densit moyennement faible avec une effervescence approprie et une texture douce. Arrire-got de crales avec des notes amres timides. En rsum, bire honnte et trs rafrachissante.

I tried this beer on tap on September 23, 2010 at "The Beerbistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada during Torontos 1st annual Beer Week. The beer was translucent gold with orange hues and a white foamy head. The aroma was grainy malt, some floral hops, and a hint of yeastiness. The mouthfeel was weak to medium bodied, with medium carbonatoin. The flavour was watered down malt, and detracted from the looks and aroma of this beer. The finish was bitter, but not so much hoppy.

[bottle] Excellent caramel aroma with some refreshing citrus notes that are from both fermentation and hops. Almost clear bronze under a bubbly patch and ring and a thin cover. Flavour is pleasant citrusy hops in good balance with spicy caramel, but a quick shot of hops bitterness that ends with mineral water. Good start, but lacking finish. Light body, moderate carbonation, moderately bitter finish.

341 bottle. Pours yellow orange with a decent white head. Nutty, grainy and a touch of grassy and floral hop aromas on the nose. Sweet malt front and lingering dryish moderate bitter finish, medium mouthfeel. Not a bad brew, but as far as American Pale Ales go, not at the top.

I have had this one for longer than I should have, not sure which Canada trade it came from but I will give a shout out to Viggo since he is a pimp. A: Pours a pale honey like golden color with a nice tall white head. Great retention, and spotty lace from top to bottom of my glass. S: Simple aromas of crackery grainy malt, candy sweetness, and mild grassy hops. T: Simple, on the malty side but I did let it sit around for a bit. The cereal grains are there, with hints of bread and caramel. Very subdued hop profile.... mostly grassy green hops with just a touch of citrus. M: On the lighter side of medium, not bad really.
