CapFlu (5103) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2006
(Draught) 6oz sample glass reviewed at the brewery. Its the SIGNAL LIGHT and not the LIGHT PALE ALE, okay? And its good for you... and it tastes swell. Medium, white foamy head with a sparkling light amber body. The head nicely webs to the glass. Nose is crisp and citrus with crystal malt. Sweaty salted. Very well hopped and toned with a mild lactic finish. Very good.

This is an excellent pale ale, especially for a canned beer. Pleasant hops and citrusy taste without too much carbonation.

This is a nice canned pale ale. It is a very clear beer w/ a foamy head which clings to the glass tenaciously as it dissipates. This is a lighter bodied pale ale w/ a nice mix of citrus and earthy hop elements. The palate is light bodied but not at all thin or watery and overall this is a very well put together beer. I am begging to wish more brewers did something like this w/ their APAs. It seems like most are pushing them towards something like an IPA but Im liking when they keep things a bit lighter and more session-able.

355ML Can. Pours a gorgeous orange in the glass. Picture perfect! Fruity aromas of grapefruit and pine. Citrus and pineapple fruit flavors up front with a slight hop finish that leaves me wanting more. Brilliant pale ale.

riversideAK (6229) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Nose of floral hops, nice moderately sweet malts, a hint of caramel, light citrus. Pours orange golden with a fairly nice frothy head. THe flavor is moderately sweet pale malts, caramel, floral and citrus hops in the finish. Nicely balanced between sweetness and hoppy. Very drinkable. Nice stuff.

blankboy (7395) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2011
Cask at Cask Days 2011. Citra hop version. Beer #1 of festival. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with a small but lasting fizzy white head. Really nice big hoppy aroma, resiny and citrusy, lovely. Flavour has lots of resiny and citrusy hops, some citrus fruit and a nice long bitter finish -- pretty much just hops and I love it. Medium bodied. A great beer to start the day with, very enjoyable and a great Pale Ale.

This is a great basic pale ale! Nose is tropical fruit with some pine. Armes are mdium fruity, some biscuit, lots of pine. Tastes are light sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Long lasting dry aftertaste. Body is light-medium with lively carbonation.
