COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A twist on a traditional English Pale Ale. Caramel and English Pale malts were combined with the floral, citrus, and grapefruit notes of the North American hop giving this ale a very distinct sensory profile.

Pours a clear auburn, with ample tan head. Very good retention and nice lacing. Still a finger of foam, down half a glass. Aroma of caramel, nuts, light pine. Creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. The flavor profile is more toward the malts, sweet caramel, slightly syrupy with just a light dose of citrus hops. Overall a smooth pale ale that leans toward an English style bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance: clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, excellent retention moderate chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: earthy, caramel malt, floral, citrus, pine. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (4/5) Not quite a true English Pale, given the North American hop presence, but certainly English-dominant. The bitterness is also a bit higher than typically for the EPA style, but not to the point of becoming unbalanced. Not my favourite style overall, but still a pleasant and well-balanced ale. (14/20)

Not a whole lot of good going on here. Some bittering hops, though not clear what. Ok malt. Easy palate. Golden pour. Light tangy finish. Id skip. Tap at Drake.

Bomber. Clear bright lighter copper, firm off-white foam settles and lasts. Aroma is mostly floral, citrus and pine. Foresty floral citrus hop forward taste, lightly sweet toasted caramel malts behind. Average carbonation, medium bodied, well hopped. Quite tasty but: NFL (Not For Lagerboys)
