Poured into a pint glass, the appearance was hazy golden orange color with a little off-white head that died off at a nice pace. Mild stringy lace.
The aroma had some breadiness and herbal hop quality. Some rye sweetness but not spiciness.
The flavor leans towards the bready malts, semi-sweet and bringing back those herbal malts to persevere through the rye sweetness. Once again, rye is not spicy. Sly rugged malty sweetness in the aftertaste. Subtle malty sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sesionability about it. Mild carbonation. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, English styled amber ale? Possibly and with a decent creativity of the rye in there, too bad it’s only the sweet side of the rye as if it had the spicy portion of it, that would definitely amplify the final score. stantheman (1079) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
On tap at Hops in New West. A medium amber color. A refreshing hoppy nose. Over the gums, it’s gently hopped and malted. Well above the macro brews. Quite nice. mcberko (18082) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of quite English-accented malts, some bread and herbal hops. Flavour is very English, with bready malts, sort of like rye bread, English hops and a metallic tinge. Drinkable, but bland and unadventurous. reebtogi (6315) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
1 litre swingtop bottle poured a pale amber color with abundant white head which settled quite quickly to a fine lace. Aroma of caramel malts and floral hops. Taste is lightly sweet with a mild hoppy finish. Overall, this is a fairly nice pale ale. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Et tu Brute? Pleasant citrus (tangerine, lemon, grapefruit) and floral hops blend well with toasty and bready malts with some caramel sweetness in the nose. Somewhat hazy golden-orange coloured body is topped by adecent white head that recedes slowly to cover. Plenty of citrus character in the flavour along with toasty and caramel malts and underlying fruity esters. Bitterness is quite tangy. Mild butterscotch note rounds out the taste. Medium light body with moderate carbonation that is pointy on the tongue. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. 1L Swingtop bottle

1L swing top. Light orange amber, medium white head. Aroma and flavour are sweet caramel with fruity nuances. Finish has low bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the thin side. Not bad, but nothing to bring me back. Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Single bottle purchased from the Howe Sound Brewery on 03/11/2011. Colour: Medium brown with slightly browned medium head. Nose: Oatmeal with brown sugar, milk chocolate, almond paste, creamed hops. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Hops wrapped in creamy caramel swirl, some malted barley lays claim in the middle, and some nutty bitterness finishes things off. Wonderful nose but nothing spectacular in the mouth. JoeZasada (317) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
1L bottle. Pours a light amber colour with a lasting peal head. Hoppy aroma; pine/citrus. Tastes hoppy;; lots of flavour/aromatic hops, notes of citrus. Some sweet malt body. Probably more of an american pale ale than an amber ale. Finishes with an earthy hop bitterness. Quite good... PWheatley (119) - , Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2010
1l bottle. The pour was amber with a rocky foamy head which lasted the length of the glass. I detected some hops in the aroma but very subdued. Over all this is a nice session beer, I certainly went through the litre with little effort. Crit (4024) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2009
