Poured a pleasant clear amber with a half-finger white head that receded quickly and left minimal lacing. A decent looking pale ale, but nothing special. Scents of floral jasmine-like hops, herbal, dank, hops, a hint of citrus, caramel and pine resin. A very nice, floral aroma that is wonderfully aromatic and floral. Flavor begins with a nicely dank and earthy herbal hop flavor with a nice floral hop flavor present as well. The middle leads into a nice, floral hop flavor and a bit of a wet earthy floral hop flavor, a bit of tangerine and a nice backbone of pale malt. Finish is lightly dry with notes of floral hops, wet earthy, herbal hops, a bit of citrus peel and a little hint of pale malt. Aftertaste is floral hops and a bit of biscuity malt. A nice pale ale flavor profile that is wonderfully floral with a nice dankness. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with light carbonation and a resinous, slightly drying feel. A nice, easily drinkable feel. Overall this is a nice floral pale ale that also adds some herbal and fruity flavors for balance in aroma and flavor. The mouthfeel is also quite nice. Overall a nice pale ale and well worth trying.

1L howler, at 5% ABV, from Sherbrooke Liquor - sadly hilarious how the only reviews for this Canadian beer thus far are from Americans.

This beer pours a clear, bright pale golden yellow colour, with two fingers of weakly puffy, anemically foamy, and generally wan dirty white head, which leaves some Avatar-homeland lace around the glass as it quickly abates.

It smells of semi-sweet, faintly biscuity pale and caramel malt, sugary white wine grapes, and leafy, floral hops. The taste is bready, slightly doughy, and ethereally crackery pale malt, more demi-sec white wine notes, a hint of innocuous stony minerality, and a certain perfumed floral hoppiness, one weirdly bereft of any sort of alcohol warming.

The carbonation is a bit peppy, and quite zippy in its wild-ish frothiness, the body medium-light in weight, and plainly smooth, nothing else here really possessing the balls to make any particular sort of fuss. It finishes off-dry, the fruity maltiness really still the only game in town, as that neutered floral character finally blows off.

A simple, particularly English-leaning pale ale, i.e. the hops and malt both understated as hell in their assertiveness - though the latter seems the most egregiously so. Nothing all that worth seeking out, unless you're in the market for a meek, but still somewhat crafty ale for your group cabin and/or general seasonal bulk beer needs.

Mr. Huff was a pleasantly surprising Pale. Starting with the appearance, it had a nice amber/ caramel color, a bright cloudy head with awesome retention. The nose was strongly hop forward, with notes of citrus and biscuit. The mouthfeel is quite clean and left me quenched. As far as pales go, this one is a great entry point in the category as it presents a nice pine, floral and biscuity nose and doesn't leave the drinker feeling dried out. Very good pale.

For Hop Heads looking for a good time....I would avoid this beer. For those that enjoy a solid pale ale that is slightly amber....this is for you. The beer poured a clear rich copper with thick white head that is leaving some lace. The scent carries faint alcohol....not much else. The taste is a nice malt with some bittering hops....fairly decent in balance. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with good carbonation. Overall its not bad....but its also non-descripted.
