mansquito (5982) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Has a quickly descending creamy head that leaves a similar lacing. Pale amber color to the body. Nice caramel aroma with floral notes and a lot of malts. Taste is pretty good fruity, slightly sweet... good amount of hops. Pleasant malts. Easy going down and definitely not too thin. Pretty good.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 2, 2008
Mainly clear, honeyed amber with very little carbonation. Aroma is wet stones. Very low carbonation but not lifeless. Lemony peppery hop. Very English feel to it. Odd but drinkable.

[1532-20080713] Cask. Soapy floralness and smooth grainy hops aroma. Murky, medium orange body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Fruity hops flavour has lemon and soapy floral sweetness. Medium body is smooth. Interesting floral fruit.

DerWeg (1616) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2008
dated "30 June" sixer from LCBO. Amber pour light tan head. Excellent very fresh-tasting Pale. Hops are defined and somewhat delicate yet have a decent bitter and citrusy kick. Enough malt body to not be too thin and dry, just enough to make the hops seem juicy, multi-dimensional and almost orange-peel citrusy. Malt character is just a hint toffee and cereal. I will buy this brewers beers more often for the entirely whole-hop process he employs, to good effect as in this example which seems more open and layered than 90% of Craft Beers made here.

Maltybones (62) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2008
A gem in Ontario brewing. Appearance is a light amber body with white froth on top. Crystal clear with low-to-medium carbonation. Citrus, a little pine and a good amount of sweetness are all well balanced in the aroma. Flavour has sweet, sweet malts, grapefuit and grains all mixing together, finishing with a great hop kick. Slick mouthfeel perfect for style. Much more of a Wesrt Coast Pale Ale than an English Pale Ale. Super.

Illuminatus (92) - Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2008
341mL bottle from the Beer Store. Six-pack packaged on April 4th, 2008. Pours orange amber with a fluffy, cream-coloured head. Aroma is of sweet malt and a touch of floral hop. Flavour is of toffee-like caramel malts, a mild, grassy bitterness from the hops, and a full, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Very tasty and refreshing.

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 341ml bottle from the beer store. I was really pleased to see the date of packaging was only a month ago, which for my beer store (Bleams Rd. Kitchener) is practically fresh from the brewery (on some other boxes theres still some best before dates of 2007). Pours a nice golden amber colour with a rich, off white head (great lace as you drink), and moderate effervescence. Aroma is of nice toffee malts, a little grainy, and defined by decent hop character. Flavour is more of the same with a bit more going on, great refeshing malts accompanied by just the right amount of hop presence. Nice, slightly slick mouth-feel, surprising for something as light and drinkable as this. This is a great summer session brew if youre looking for something other than a good pilsener. I really wish more beers from this brewery were available in my area!

mephisto (1286) - TAIWAN - JUL 25, 2007
light copper hue with beige head, it has mild aroma of grapefruit. this brew has a nice profile that is well balanced by hoppings, very true to the style of english pale ale.

robinvboyer (4409) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2007
nice beer. aroma is very much citrus, and pine. i wouldnt consider this an english pale ale. more and an IPA. its quite a bit more bold than an english style pale ale. the hops are more up front. overall a nice beer.
