Notes/Commercial Description:
Although pale ale is one of the world’s most common beer styles, Crosswind is anything but. Light in colour but not flavour, our pale ale is a surefire hit among drinkers of full-flavoured premium imports.

Nice blonde color, good carbonation, deeper flavors than generic big company IPA s but not enough for me to repurchase this beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A: Golden with an orange tinge, little carbonation, huge 4 finger off white head, chunky lacing, clear filtered.

S: Citrus, orange, sweet orange candy, slight red chili spice, dark toasted malt. There is almost a slight smokiness not like a smoked beer, just a hint of it. Somewhat earthy and wild as in the smell of a forest.

T: Citrus and orange candy, earthiness and light toasted notes as well as the herbal forest qualities come through. Rather light overall, but the presence of these make this one interesting.

M: Medium light body, very little carbonation almost a little flat.

O: Upon tasting, the lack of carbonation stood out before the flavours. The tastes that do come through were really interesting, yet are light on the palate. I am enjoying this one, and it has a cool style on the can. Could enjoy this one on a summer day at the cottage.
