How is it possible I haven’t rated this yet?
Strong malts balance the floral and tangerine hop notes in the aroma. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a decent, fine-bubbled white head that recedes to cover with great lacing. Thick sweet caramel malts are offset by medium bitterness but this definitely a malty pale ale. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Enjoyed on tap at Alibi Room.
Pours a huge frothy white head and has a golden amber appearance. Dirty lacing. Lively carbonation. Aromas of citrus and floral hops. Nice flavours of oranges and citrus tang, light malts. Crisp and bitter hoppiness. Creamy mouthfeel. Nicely balanced hops and malts. Pretty good. bdleedahl (594) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 28, 2017
Nicely made pale ale, no astringency, true to style. Very well made. Bottle in sk

Golden. Fluffy white head. Aroma is melon and malt. Taste is much of the same with a light bitterness. A Surrey classic. JohnRMurdoch (4997) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2017
12oz can from Thirsty Singapore. Bright yellow, good head. Pineapple aroma. Spicy leafy jelly sweet flavour. Bitter citrusy aftertaste. A great pale ale. drjoeng (1358) - SINGAPORE - JAN 9, 2017
5%ABV. Pale ale.
Poured out gold. 8 SRM.
Nose has a full malty aroma with toast and bread crumb aromas being most prominent. Very brief hints of pine and spruce. Some citrus aromas as well with orange peel and grapefruit peel.
Mouthfeel is beery. Palate has nice toasted malt flavor with graham cracker, candied nuts, dark wheat toast, and doughnuts. Hops are bitter and noble with a hint of citrus peel and on further approach start to yield slightly spicy flavor notes as well with cilantro and light fennel seed and cloves.
Finish is brief and clean. Then comes back and lingers a little on the back of the throat without being cloying.
Goes on Favorites List!

Can. Orange caramel malt and grapefruit peel/pine aroma. Golden yellow with giant off-white head. Moderately sweet orange caramel malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Nice body. Tasty. JPDIPSO (6261) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Golden color with a taller, somewhat diminishing, fluffy off-white head. Aromas of pale malt, melon and light honey. The hops are in the background with light citrus and spice. Light malt and pear-like fruit flavors. Gentle bitterness. Well balanced. A very easy drinking pale ale. 3/11

Clear amber not much foam. Good hoppiness, citrus and grapefruit notes. Excellent ajnepple (6960) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2016
12 oz single can as Red Betty Pale Ale, purchased at Wilbur’s Total Beverage. Medium to dark orange, slight hazy appearance with a lingering white head. Aroma of resinous hops, light pine and toasted malts. Similar flavor, adding a moderate hop bitterness. Average body with a light dry, lasting finish. OK, I guess, slightly harsh and possibly dated.
