COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pompous Ass is our version of an English Pale Ale. We used an American ale yeast to brighten up the flavour and add our own contemporary blend of hops to ensure that even the most pompous ale drinker does a double take.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, - FEB 2, 2013
Can from the brewery. Pours a slightly hazy brown/orange with a whole bunch of foamy white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Smell is definite English hops, floral and slight fruit, that mixes well with a bit of roast malt. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet at first before launching into a well balanced hoppy bitterness which slowly dissipates leaving a hint of sweetness and roastiness to go with the bitter aftertaste. Very good taste.

473ml can. Cloudy caramel brown coloured. Thin white head. Nose is on the sweet and malty side with caramel and light brown sugar and a trace of orange. Taste is grainy, caramelly and a little toasty. A mellow and malty English pale ale.

bdleedahl (600) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 12, 2017
Lowish bitterness, medium malt caramel body. Very well done to style. A rarely made pale ale that isnt too hoppy and also very clean. Can brought back home from Tor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BrewWhatIWant (295) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2017
Pours hazy copper colour with a respectable white head. Aroma is earthy hops. Taste is slightly sweet with a spicy, slightly bitter finish. There is some caramel and possibly brown malt, and spicy, earthy hops, a hint of citrus and nuts. Light to medium bodied and on the low end for carbonation. It’s not bad, but it’s not particularly English. An English yeast might make all the difference.

3.4
omhper (25740) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2017
Bottled, from Urban Fresh, Ottawa. Hazy copper colour, mid sized head. Mild citrus and crystal malt up front. Dry with light body and clean mouthfeel. Bread and citrus. Mid bitter finish. Pretty good, but not very English.
