COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The English know a thing or two about pale ale. West Coasters know a thing or two about having a good time. Naturally, we kept these facts in mind when we perfected the recipe for English Bay Pale Ale. Tradition is served in the smooth, mild flavour and caramel malt aroma, and that distinctive West Coast character comes through thanks to natural carbonation and careful maturing. The result? A real pale ale with will rise to any occasion.

As others have noted, definitely very malty, very English. Enjoyable enough but a little too sweet. Among the better of the basic GIB line.

Clear light amber with small off white head. Nose of caramel, bread and touch of grass. Flavor is much the same with some bitterness. Clean sweet finish.

papat444 (136) - Carignan, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2017
Appearance: Pours a nice orange-amber body with a slight chilly haze and a decent 2-3 finger head that disappears a little too quickly. Not much lacing to speak of. Smell: Some hops but the malt wins out in the aroma that is a bit faint. Has a dry touch to it. Taste: At first nothing but a slight tinge of bitterness. Opens up a little with a bit of caramel. Has a grainy touch and a certain off flavor that i cant put my finger on. This is much more malt-driven than hops powered. Still, the taste does not last long and is a bit boring. Mouthfeel: Marginally better if only because it has good carbonation. Otherwise, the body is weak & a tad watery for my taste.

12oz bottle purchased from the brewery store while visiting Vancouver. Did not like this one as much as expected and only now do I see that it is really a macro brew disguised as a craft beer from Molson Coors which explains why it tasted like the juice of corporate over lords.

Not much to say about flavour. The beer drinks easily and is good to have in between more flavourful beers

john44 (2997) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle. Dark Amber in colour. Malty (bready malts, caramel), some fruitiness and light grassy hops. Sweetish malty with slight bitter hoppy edge. Mild in flavour. Easy drinking, but bland. (2008)

A very bland beer, in dire need of a few extra hop additions. Poor head retention, minimal aroma.

Forgettable beer, not hoppy enough for my taste in pale ales. Head disappears quickly. Aftertaste not great.

Bierdimpfe (624) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
Clear copper color. Weak one finger head that dissipates in 5 minutes. Flavors of roasted grains, toffee, faint berries, cinnamon, nutmeg, faint ginger and herbal spices. Is a little bready and biscuity, with bitter red ale spices. Smooth medium bodied, the carbonation is prickly. Light finish that lingers with a faint roasted and grassy feel, and faint gingerbread. Overall decent quality craft. Decent flavors, a little faint, but the balance is great. Well refreshing, a little light, yet satisfying and filling.
