Our Pale Ale is light in colour, but don't let that fool you — this beer has flavour enough to satisfy even the most demanding connoisseur (known in the industry as a "beer geek"). A beautiful, slightly sweet malt flavour, with just a hint of roasted grains, is balanced by medium hop bitterness and fresh citrus notes from our premium imported hops. An amber-coloured ale for beer drinkers of all stripes.

    Pours a huge foamy head but goes away very quickly. Has a clear, pale golden appearance. Weak lacing. Aromas of sweet malts, notes of honey and toffee. Flavours of cereal malts, fairly bitter hops, some light toffee hints. Also some subtle hints of honey in the mix, mainly in the finish. Pretty good balance between sweetness and bitterness. Not too bad but find it to be a tad too sweet for a pale ale. The hops are taking a back seat in this one.

    The beer pours a light golden orange in colour with a thin tan head that lasts a while. Aroma is citrusy hops, caramel, and light fruit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is caramel, fruit, weak grapefruit, and a nice bitter finish. This would definitely make a great session beer.

    Came in the OCB Discovery Pack 9 at the LCBO, for summer 2011. Honey coloured (golden with a hue of amber) with a big frothy slightly off-white head that has good retention and dirty lacing. Nice fresh grain scent (biscuit malt) with some mild piney hop well-balanced in the back to add some character. Smooth medium-bodied, not to be too watery, but still be refreshing. Mildly sweet malt with some fruity notes and a lightly dry finish. A pretty good, above average Ontario Pale Ale.

    This brew was incredible. Subtle yet tasty. Citrusy but not overtly hoppy and extremely smooth and drinkable. If ever there was a PA you could drink in the summer, this would be it. They could work on the appearance a little but it's a minor quibble. Very impressed.

    Draft: sampled at brewery 7/3/10: Misnomer; this is definitely a cream ale and a decent one at that. Taps a clear gold with a 2 finger white cap - fair retention, decent lacing, moderate carbonation. Nose is malty-grainy, light fruits, some grassy hops. Medium-light body, rounded mellow character. Flavor profile has lightly sweet malts out front then some fruity pear-apple tones and mild hop balance...clean finish punctuated by great hop-malt balance, light bittering right at the end. Boilerplate lawn mower ale, fresh tasting, easy drinking and refreshing
