COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full bodied golden Pale Ale which pours with a linen white medium density head leaving spider web lace on the glass. On the palate the flavour is sweet fruity malts up front (apricot, mango) with a bit of candy, and slight grassy notes which fall away to reveal a hint of biscuit with rather pleasant grapefruit and perfume undertones. This is a hop bomb, there is no doubt. To the nose there is a mild malt aroma which accentuates the robust floral bouquet which is derived from the hops.

Medium full bodied ale with pleasant lingering hop finish.

6.8 % alcohol by volume, IBU’s 46.6

Food Pairings: Burgers, Chilli, Chorizo, Crispy/Spicy Duck, Spicy Indian dishes

Canned, from LCBO, Ottawa. Cloudy pale amber, rich firm head. Fruity nose with some pink grapefruit. Sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Some pink grapefruit, lots of caramel. Resinous bitter finish. Functional but overly caramelly.

Draught at C’est What, Toronto
Amber color, clean, with small head. Light aroma of malt and hop. The flavor is nice, crispy malt (unusual), with a touch of cereals; the mouthfeel is lean, but there is an apparent light sweetness; good bitterness, with delicate fruits. Balanced.
Fresh and pleasant.

Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 20, 2012
Deep golden colour. Thin head. The aroma doesn’t have much hop at all. There’s light pale fruits, but they are subtle and indistinct. Earthy palate. Lots of fuggles maybe, still only maybe 45 IBUs. That’s pretty light. The malts are mostly light biscuity stuff and a bit syrupy. Basically a golden ale. Needs way more hop and a much brighter character. Will disappoint anyone expecting an IPA.

Draft - Sweet caramel. Clear copper with a thin white head. Big caramel backbone and hop bitterness. Sweet and bitter but no hop flavour. Drinkable.

Lubiere (13898) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2010
A hazed orange amber alew oth a thick frothy light moka head. In aroma, a very herbaceous hops, lightly infected, but with some Fantome qualities, sweet fruity esters, quite nice. In mouth, a sweet malt with with nice hops, light grapefruits, again, very Belgian esters. Surprising. Thanks Karl.

Dogbrick (13006) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Sample from can at the Strange Brew Tasting on 02/18/2012. This brew pours a clear yellow-gold color with a medium white head that burns away steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Light grassy hops and malt in the nose. Medium body with a mildly bitter hops character and notes of bready malt and fruit in the background. The finish is short and leaves a fruity hops aftertaste. Average overall.

Sammy (12195) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2009
On-tap at C’est What. 47 IBU only for an IPA. It is still hoppy, the carbonation is right there, the finish is odd. Orangey colour with some lace. Definite smoke, a touch watery, a mild pleasant aroma.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2016
473 ml can. 6.5%. BB 2017/02/06. (LCBO) Sault Ste Marie, ON.
Slightly cloudy golden color with a small foamy white head. Apricot, wet paper, fruity sweetness and some malt in the aroma. The flavor is stale hops, mild bitterness, some fruitiness and malt. No fresh.
