12oz bottle at Banff film & T.V. festival. Pours deep copper with a small bright white frothy head that somewhat diminishes to a patchy film, some lined lacing. Aroma is fruity hops (berries) and yeast (sweet dough), malt (cookie) with some grass and hay notes. Mild bitterness and acidity, some fruitiness, sugars, malt and yeast stand out, finish is mild berries. Light bodied, smooth and clean palate. TheDoctor (67) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2009

Golden copper, off-white head with good retention. Citrusy nose. Medium-light body, hint of malt sweetness then citrus and a mildly bitter finish. A good example of pale ale.

Amber colour, thin head. Floral aroma, english hops on the nose. Nice well balanced flavour, malty, bitter. Very english and very drinkable. Nice work Tree.

Pours clear yellow with foamy white head. Smells distinctly of hops, light citrus and wet grass. Tastes of grain, light apple, and with hops on the after palate. Very crisp and refreshing, i guess i could call this an entry-level ipa, ya know, for all those bud drinkers out there. Very little lacing.

Bottle. Pours medium, clear amber, thin head, spotty lacing. Nose is gentle hops and sweet malt. Plate is gently hopped, with the maltiness building in the mouth. A bit oversweet, and none too complex, but enjoyable, you wouldn’t have to break my arm to get me to try this again. bulldogops (2500) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2009

Bottle. 5%. Clear amber/copper pour, with a weak white foam, very little retention. Aroma is citrus, hops, and mild sweet malts. Taste is quite bitter, citrusy hops, malt and grains. Finish is smooth. Mouthfeel is alright. I’m on the fence here, it tasted alright and poured and smelled good, but I think I expected too much from it. Still a decent pale ale. 6-2-6-3-10 JoeZasada (317) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2009

Bottle. Clear and coppery beer. Little head. Reasonable carbonation. Light to medium body. Mildly sweet biscuity malt. Hop flavor is is nice, with mild pineyness. Better than average for a Pale Ale.
