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.

Not so hoppy, but malty dominated. Reddish tinge. Marginal beer to drink or whatever. Thanks Brian. HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - MAY 7, 2017
June 28, 2013 - with blankboy, gregclow, jercraigs & mabel - bomber shared by gregclow. Hazy amber with a thick-looking creamy beige head. Aroma of solid citrus, zest and alcohol - very appealing (8-). Have to down-check it for the flavour - may more grain and nowhere near as much sharp citrus - I was expecting a lot more - lighter alcohol even. Thick body, average everything and eminently forgettable. pintbypint (3827) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
650ml brown bottle. The colour is a nice orange with a little haze. Noisy white head on top, leaves some clinging white foam behind. Nose has some bright and fresh orange zest. Taste - grains, bread, orange and lemon, grapefruit. Biscuity, malty at the end with some hops lingering and a mineral dryness. Enjoyed it.

Bottle, shared with Rockley. Orange amber, off white head. Earthy, tea-like caramel with mild citrus peel and moderate bitterness. Not a bad beer, just not very exciting. pictoman (1211) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2017
Poured from growler. Orangey brown with off white head. Toasted malt with hint of caramel and light citrus hops.

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.

Caramel. Hazy. Lacing. Good carbonation. Caramel and a little tropical. Just ok. griffintainment (13) - - JUN 6, 2016

On tap at Central City Pub. Pours a clear light copper. Aroma is slightly hoppy and sour. Taste is hoppy bitter with caramel notes. Bitter aftertaste with caramel notes. Good for English Pale Ale. solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2015
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. I’d skip. Tap at Drake.
