2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma and taste of this one are both recognizable, but feels like they come from different beers... the aroma is of crystalline hay, the flavour (which I admit is mainly aroma itself, but what you feel when exhaling while drinking) is caramel coffeeish. Only at the finish did I pick up on hops, which were mildly lemony. OK, but not coherent.
Appearance: clear pale amber with a short ivory head, good retention and patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: biscuity and caramel malt, honey, grassy, light diacetyl. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, lively carbonation, brief duration finish. (3/5)
I guess it’s reasonably true to style, but I’d be happier with more hop presence. Sessionable, and would probably go well with fish and chips. Can’t see ever bothering to try it again. (12/20) Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 6, 2015
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a mostly clear amber color with a slim white head that just capped the top of the pint glass. A basic film glossed the top of the beer. Light carbonation was seen rising to the top.
The smell had a huge roasty caramel aroma over top of a light "soapy" English-like flavor.
The taste copied the aroma and gave off a light sweet malty soapy aftertaste. A quick sweet semi-watery finish accompanies the aftertaste.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed okay.
Overall, I say this was a good English Pale ale I could have again and with some fish n’ chips if I would find again. Madsen1635 (827) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber pour with small white head. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is quite flat and sweet. Low carbonation. patricks110 (2495) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 10, 2013
A nice sessionable crisp PA but nothing special. Grainy cereal malts with a hint of caramel and a mild floral, herbacious hop build. Very mild flavour with a hint of off skunky malt and tons of grainy, bready malts. fiulijn (20493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2012
Draught at Burgoo on 10th Ave W, Vancouver, as “Burgoo Brew” house ale

Light amber color, with creamy head. Aroma of biscuits, malt, cereals. Dry mouthfeel, with a decent grainy caramel flavor and ordinary bitterness.
Pleasant, with a personal touch.
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of white head that settles quite quickly leaving only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grassy hops with some caramel. Taste is a light caramel malty sweetness with some grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with abundant carbonation. A pretty decent pale ale, but would be better with a more pronounced hoppiness. Lagerboy (2206) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2012
Bright clear copper fading foamy tan head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt. Light caramel roasty malt taste, faint hop background. Light body, average carbonation. Mild dry finish. Very pleasant. LF (Lagerboy Friendly) ration (2236) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2012
Tap. Pours dark amber with a slight head. Aroma butter, sweet american hops. After a day in the slope, this was perfect. But as a beer Not Bad. bcBelgianbrew (115) - , British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
I had really low expectations. I enjoyed drinking it. 750ml bottle. I’d look to buy it over the myriad of microbreweries in British Columbia that do pretty much the same thing. I’d like to try it on tap in Revelstoke.
