Bottled sample. Sharp, hoppy aroma. Bronze hue with not much carbonation and no head. Highly hopped bitter flavour with bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied.
Whistler Classic Pale Ale pours clear a amber color with a white head of medium lifetime. The nose has notes of grassy hops, caramel and rye bread. The attack is characterized by rich caramel biscuit maltiness and a hint of roastiness, the mid-palate unfolds its herbal notes which stay with the solid finish along with some acidity. The carbonation is light and fine. This is a decent, straightforward, easy drinking brew. BroSpud (2233) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAR 11, 2017
On tap at one of the local restaurants while visiting Whistler. Average middle of the road pale ale that nevertheless hit the spot. More of an English style than a West Coast pale. Jado (804) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2014
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a surprisingly dark amber with a small off-white head and light carbonation. Aromas of raisins, plums, lemon and a little hay. Taste is sweet biscuit malt with a little apple at the front, before a restrained bitterness creep in. There’s a slight metallic note in there as well. A bit thin-bodied. Light fruity aftertaste. Not entirely successful but not bad. solidfunk (9363) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Pours pretty dark for a pale ale. King of takes the pale out of it. Ok hoppy feel. Finishes a little sour and mostly forgettable. On tap at Metropole. Bif (2306) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pours a hazy dark copper color with a very small head and no real lacing. Aroma or malt, nuts and a bit of dark fruit. Taste of roasted malt, bit of toffee and nuts. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly moderate body, smooth but a bit short on flavor. Fairly bland non-offensive English Pale Ale.

330ml bottle from First Choice Liquor. Full of caramel malt aromas which are very strong and fill the nose. Bronzed copper colour with ahead that quickly settles. Flavour is very malty and nutty with a thick creamy mouthfeel. baraciisch (3335) - California, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Had this some time ago but found my notes... Light hops aroma... Flavor is gentle and crisp with a nice hop base... Not very bitter, a good starter beer for hop novices... Kind of watery, not as sweet as pales I’m used to... The coors light of pales, okay at best reebtogi (6341) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2012
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a small white head that settles quickly leaving no lacing behind. Aroma is light cereal grains and mild herbal tea-like hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with mild herbal hop bitterness. Light to medium body with light carbonation. Below average pale ale. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Clear amber with a pale copper hue, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Big time tea
leaf nose, slight cardboard and a hint of overcooked vegetable.   Luckily not as strong on the tongue, but its
there.   Hops a minor, malts are even less.   Some tobacco leaf as well.   I think I understand why those
in BC come down to Seattle for IPAs and Pale Ales.   Too much tea and tobacco leaf, not enough hop... or should I
say hardly any.   At this point the body and mouthfeel aren’t even a factor.   Next! Sledutah (7788) - Utah, USA - AUG 23, 2011
