Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouvermcberko (19880) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2011
Clean light amber color with creamy head. The aroma offers a good amount of PNW hops, and very nice cereals; smooth and dry mouthfeel; the malt flavor is a bit grainy, the hops provide some citrus quality, and strong bitterness, possibly too much bitterness in the final.
Many years ago, when it was created, this would have been a top beer in the category; nowadays one would expect a different Pale Ale. But it’s still a very good beer, clean and well brewed.
