Really not much going on here. Some tolerable sweet malt and a hint of ambiguous dryness in the finish. I think I mightve caught a tiny, hidden whiff of the faintest smidge of a hint of an aura of citrus, but that might be wishful thinking. If it didnt sound so good in the description I probably wouldnt give it such low marks.

A blond/amber in the glass and a white cap. Aroma is very malt forward. Caramel being the main note with some hopping coming through. Taste is sweet and bitter. Unmemorable and not really to style.

Belle couleur cuivre, mais trs mince et limpide ; film de mousse qui rsiste au temps. En nez, rien de bien puissant : un peu de malt caramel, dabricots. Un peu plus daction en bouche, avec des saveurs assez rondes et sucres, mais tout de mme penchant vers le timide et le retenu. Finale un peu herbace. Ressemble davantage une amber ale houblonne quune relle APA. Pas mauvaise, juste un peu ennuyante.

BiereLuc (1275) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Bire blonde, limpide, sans effervescence et peu mousseuse. Nez de foin mouill, lgrement mielleux. En bouche, une fine amertume herbace valse sur une base malte qui manque de conviction. Un peu de caramel? Non, cest du beurre ce fameux diactyle qui frappe encore. Sinon, la bire est mince et larrire-got est peu durable.

Oakes (17093) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
Slightly hazy bronze, gentle carbonation. It has that stale mushroomy aroma, lightish body and lots of sweetness. Very honeyish and almost no bitterness or even hop aroma. Better thought of as an amber.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a big thick white head. Aroma is grainy and grassy malts. Taste is grassy notes with faint straw. Fairly boring

#16 - This is a pale ale? Pours cloudy straw. Smells of yeast, rose, wheat. Taste is similar, too strong on the yeast side. Almost Belgium or a Hef. Not great for a pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty bland pale ale. Not much for aroma to speak of but easy drinking sessionable pale ale.
