3.89/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Type: Pale ale - Blonde
Poured from a 375ml bottle

Appearance: Nice golden color with white head. Left white lacing.

Smell: This has a fairly simple smell - mostly malt to me. After swirling as I drank to kill some carbonation, I detected more grassy and earthy. Slight caramel.

Mouthfeel: Nice body to the mouthfeel - just enough - a bit creamy like.

Taste: Light malt with a bit of wheat and light sweetness and caramel (from a light crystal malt?). Great hop balance in this which pairs well with the level of carbonation and malt flavours. There is definitely a number of different hops - I can definitely detect williamette (on review of their site I see that it has Cascade, Willamette, Golding and Hallertau). This just seems so balanced beautifully.

4.26/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: A lovely deep golden amber with a thick and distinct white head. A good deal of lacing.

Smell: Hoppy aromas, a bit fruity, a bit grassy. There's something almost caramel-ish going on.

Taste: A surprising malty sweetness up front (that remains quite crisp) followed by a wave of pleasant fruity notes, and finishing out with hoppy bitterness. This last hoppy note stays on the tongue for quite a while and intensifies as it lingers.

Mouthfeel: First impression is crisp, light, very bright and active, which almost seems to transform into a very smooth, creamy and rich mouthfeel.

Overall: What is exceptional about this beer is it's superb balance – from the hops and malts to the light yet creamy mouthfeel, every point in this beer has a perfectly weighted counterpoint. Quite good, I highly recommend it.

Snagged a single bottle from a "pick six" craft beer wall (Oak & Vine in Calgary). Poured into an English pint glass. This brew is a dark gold to light bronze color with a decent-sized light tan head. Smells like sweet dough accompanied by some dark fruit malty notes, along with some earthy hop spice, orchard fruit, and sweet flowers (clover?). Surprisingly devoid of citrus or pine aromas and the same is true on the palate. Rich sweet malts are most noticeable here, some plum and brown sugar, followed by spicy apples and pears, black tea, bramble fruit, peach ... Reminds me of something more sweet, floral, and mellow than most pale ales but very good nonetheless. Moderate to high carbonation and the finish does not become intensely bitter or dry, instead remaining earthy yet fruity at the same time. A well-constructed beer that would make a solid session option. This is not a hop showcase but instead hits a malt-forward profile, with hops relegated to the supporting cast.
