This all-malt Pale Ale is dry, pleasantly hoppy and flavourful. An easy drinking Canadian style amber ale.

Editors note: available in pubs as house brand, for example The Met 1892 Pale Ale, in New Westminsters pub The Met

Ive never bought this because its in the s--t section of the beer store. Just sitting there on the concrete floor... 24s of it stacked high. Theres lots to be judgemental about. Until I tried one. My expectations were very low. I knew Id hate it... but then... the first swig danced over my palate and down my gullet. Reminded me of the Banquet Beer. The same metallic taste is there. And I like it. Plus its cheap. Really cheap. In Canada Coors Original is stupid expensive. This is cheap and bubbly and metallic. Just like a nice Banquet Beer.

A step up from their lager, but still pretty bad. Tastes of aluminum and caramel, with nasty hopping. Finishes off with some light nasty hopping as well. It a cool name for the brewery, but thats about where the coolness stops, except for the cold can, ha ha.

Does Hells Gate refer to the mouth of the can? Therefore unleashing all Hell unto your being? Nahhhh, its not THAT bad. Better than most Macro garbage, this copper spawn still gets you your grainy malt fix. Caramel, cereal and some fairly light pine hops keep this from being banished to the depths of Hell. It is, after all, waiting for you at the gate.

My favourite affordable beer. Its got no preservatives so there is no ugly headache the next day. Flavour is way better than other beers of similar price point.

Pours a clear light copper, huge white head, little clumps of lace. Nose is sweet grains and corn. Tastes much the same as it smells. Rather disappointing.

Flat tasteless, the only redeeming quality about this beer is that its wet. OK if you just want to get drunk.

Draught at The Met, New Westminster, as The Met 1892 Pale Ale
There is a light fruity malt aroma, simple. Poor flavor, almost no malt, very light sweetness and light butter, very light fruity trace; the bitterness is low.
Not offensive, but too simple.

355ml can pours a pale amber color with a fast dissipating white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is cereal grains and light grassy hops. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with some grassy hop bitterness. As far as pale ales go, this one is just not good at all.

355ml can. Yellow, pissy-smelling, thin-tasting, heavily-carbonated swill. But never look a gift beer in the mouth, right?

Lagerboy (2089) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2012
Clear pale orange, foamy white head fades. Sweet grainy malty aroma and taste. Metalic and citrus notes. Low hopped, average carbonation, light bodied. Bland forgettable finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
