Brownish and transparent colour, small lasting off-white head. No doubt it’s a pale ale, but it seems to be relatively modestly hopped. Aroma includes biscuits, finish is a little sweet. A more than decent alternative to your Mexican lager. Nothing special but not bad.

355ml bottle. Two-fiddy a pop - how can I resist, for the next offering for this brewery in Alberta? Sign me up, as my coworker proclaimed earlier today.

This beer pours a clear, medium bronzed amber hue, with one skinny finger of feebly foamy off-white head, which isn't long for this world, and leaves a concurrent minimal streak of fibrous lace around the glass.

It smells of fruity, sweet bready malt, a slight metallic edge, and a light grassy, earthy hoppiness. The taste is more bready, somewhat biscuity malt, a bit of toffee/caramel, some mild buttery notes, and a nice, thought fairly neutered, citrusy hop rejoinder.

The bubbles are agreeably sedate, though nowhere near dead, the body a steady medium weight, especially for the purported style, and equally smooth. It finishes quite off-dry, the sweet malt exhibiting some newfound pastry characteristics to augment the existing sweetness base, as the hops seem to have dialed things back to lo-fi.

A not-so-sanely categorized beer - this is a pale ale, no foolin', with a clear identity schism between Yankee and Red Coat - regarding the booze alone (props though to the seamless integration) discounts the given classification (Miiild? There's nothing miiild about it!). Anyway, a decent ale, flavourful, and moderately hopped. Worth the pesos, that point is beyond reproach.
