2.58/5  rDev -22.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Got this one at the LCBO in Waterloo.

From a 16oz can into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours a small, medium looking, foamy white head with good retention. Cloudy amber orange with a touch higher carbonation. Head fades to a faint wisp. A splotchy wisp remains leaving some dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Pale malts, caramel notes, some floral aromas and a touch of honeydew melon. Okay, but mild.

TASTE: Pale malts, light caramel notes with some grainy bread and hop bitterness at the swallow. Somewhat empty through the middle. Medium but lingering finish of bready sweetness, floral hops and grass notes. Some bitterness lingers. It's a beer.

PALATE: Slightly thinner body with medium levels of carbonation. A little watery on the palat,e goes down fine and finishes a touch dry.

OVERALL: This is okay, but a little watery and not all that exciting. The label says there are roasted grains in here too, but obviously none of that is to be found. Decent to drink, but nothing worth remembering, and certainly not something worth going for if you're looking for a real drinking experience. Something I'd buy again if I wanted to watch the Arsenal take on the Spurs without any distractions.

Pale ale limited to the muskokas, but fortunately available at the session beer festival.

Light gold pour with a white head. Nice retention and lace. Sweet malt aroma with hints of cereal and lemon. Slightly malty body with a hint of corn, lemon and grass. Some citrus, but not as much as I like, and somewhat of a lager taste for a pale ale. This is a passable ale, but should really appeal to the mainstream markey (hopefully). Medium-light body with a medium carbonation is okay for the style - could perhaps be smoother.

For a first attempt its a little ho-hum for me, but should hopefully get them some good business from the macro market. I'd like to see these guys develop a little bit more.

lcbo taster packs are consistenly disappointing. want more atomic smashbomb.

anyway..golden yellow hue with thin white head. head is gone immediately. looks like someone spit in the glass with a white glob sitting in the middle of the drink

i think i smell booze. at 5% that is a tad of a let down. poured in a duvel glass i do get some beery aromas. but sort of all over the place. grassy skunk-like notes. some off smells.

medicinal bitterness followed by malty booze. just a poorly balanced offering. some of the flavors are acceptable but this just doesnt blend well.

gulping it down leaves a chalky taste with some sourdough notes. but not in any good way if you like sourbread.

i suppose gulping this in one sitting would promote a headrush and quench the thirst but as for flavor and craft i find this unworthy.

3/5  rDev -9.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Bottle: Poured a light golden color ale with a nice large foamy head with OK retention and limited lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet cereal notes with some unrefined grain notes also detectable. Taste is also a mix between some cereal notes with some unrefined grain notes and some light dry hops. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad overall but light notes of unrefined grain are more or less interesting.

Uninspired, pretty much indistinguishable from what you'd get from any one of the big boys. Grassy hop nose is probably this one's best feature. Sweet up front, slightly bitter finish. Moderate head settles to heavy film. no lace. Clear golden brew. That's it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

This definitely looks like something I'd like to have with me down by the lake. Its golden colour not only emulates the sun but is quite well suited to it; the beer's complexion is brilliantly clear and its tone shines resplendently. The few bubbles that float around do so at a lazy, summer-appropriate pace. Its head, unfortunately, has mostly evaporated.

The brewery's own description of 'sweet caramel malt tones being balanced by fresh hop aroma and just a hint of roasted grain' sums up the aroma to a T. It has a delicate, ambiguous but ever-wafting floral component that largely veils the bready notes of raw, perhaps lightly toasted, whole grains and their husks. It comes together well.

'Insipid' seems like too harsh a word to describe the flavour this beer (doesn't) have, but in truth, it is largely tasteless. Whether that is by design or not, I cannot say, however, we have to assume that if the brewer intended more flavour he'd know enough to brew it with more malt (and hops); its carbonation makes by far the most notable impression.

Which is a shame because, frankly, this lightly toasted biscuity malt, the teaspoon of honey and the vaguely floral aftertaste is all rather pleasant and exceedingly palatable. It is actually the kind of flavour I appreciate in this style, but it need be more pronounced, more weighty before it can even be recognized. The cure is simple: up the dosage.

But the beer wasn't conceived to be a sensation on the palate, but rather a widely appealing thirst-quencher that is well suited to warm weather drinking. And, indeed, Lake of Bays offers exactly that. This clean and unadulterated flavour is enough to make even anyone's most favourite macro-lager taste awful by comparison and it's agreeable enough to remind even aficionados that any beer enjoyed is a good beer!

3.13/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: It has a nice pale golden/orange colour to it. It has a white head that dies down quite fast and has some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of bready malts, some graininess with floral and citrucy notes.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a bready and grainy taste to it but the hops only add a bitterness to it.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a slight watery feel to it.

Drinkability: It's a smooth drinkable beer accompanied with bland flavours and aromas. Not quite what I was expecting from a Pale Ale but a decent beer.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Serving Type - 473ml can poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Pours a cloudy golden-yellow colour with 2 fingers of bright white, fluffy head which dissipates slowly, leaving some spectacular lacing along the glass.

Smell - Very faint smell. What is there is grainy and unremarkable. There are also some fainy traces of citrus.

Taste - Following the nose, there isn't a whole lot going on here. There is some very light grains and citrus. There is next to no bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Incredibly light body and low carbonation makes for an incredibly watery drink.

Overall - 3/5

Part of the OCB mixer pack...

A - Pours a slightly hazy golden colour, finger of head with decent retention and some nice sheeting lacing.

S - Rather mild, some grassy hops with some caramel malt undertones.

T - Caramel malts off the top, some subtle grassy hops, and bready flavours linger on the finish. Hop presence is a bit disappointing for an APA.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet. Would prefer something a bit more dry.

O - A tasty ale, but a bit disappointing for an APA. Glad I had the opportunity to try it, but there are certainly better offerings from OCB for this style.

I had this on tap at C'est What's 2010 Fall Festival of Craft Breweries. Pours fairly bright orange with thin white head with a small bit of lacing. Smells earthy and floral, but hops were pretty low profile in this. Flavour has a nice sweetness to it. This beer is ok and I'd order it if I saw it in a place with bad selection, but it probably shouldn't be thought of as an APA, even though the brewer does call it a pale ale.

341ml bottle courtesy of my girlfriend's mom. Thanks Debbie! Pours a golden amber hue, one finger of frothy white head, sheets of lacing on the shaker. Good clarity, lots of bubbles in the body. Smell is toasty, grainy, and musty aromas, mildly floral fruitiness, slight bubblegum, grassy hops. Taste is bready pale malts, cereal grains, toasted oats, light hop bitterness, more mustiness, touch of metal, kinda watery for the style. Mouthfeel is medium, crisp, spicy carbonation, nice bite on the tongue, some juicy astringency toward the end, clean and chalky finish. A drinkable session pale that fails to distinguish itself from other APAs in the Ontario market. The website claims "this beer has enough flavour to satisfy even the most demanding connoisseur," but if the brewery wants to have its cake and eat it too - appealing to the cottage crowd while garnering praise from beer geeks - it will have to do much better than this.

Pours a dark yellow with a thin white head.

Smells of sweet, grainy malts, a tad bit of citrus, not hop presence detected.

Pretty sweet upfront, citrusy, almost and alcoholic taste to it which is strange. Some slight hop bitterness finishes it off, but overall it's pretty bland.

Not the best Pale Ale ever, and not something I would try again.

Pale bloned colour, one finger of white head, no lacing on the glass. Smell is malty, bread like notes, floral hoppy notes are revealed, grassy with light toffee like sweet scents. Taste is malty and cereal like, biscuit notes, lightly hoppy, bitter toward the finish, slightly sweet finish and aftertaste. Light-med carb, medium body, fairly nice feel. Quite pleasant and easy drinking, refreshing and quite nice. Don't think I'll be buying much of this but its not bad for what it is.

Bottle from the singles bin at the LCBO, 341ml into a pint glass. Enjoyed on July 30.

Pours a gold, with a light amber tinge to it. Transient white head, that leaves some thin bubbles as a collar. Good amounts of carbonation visible in the body. Nose is quite moderate some orange, with hints of grapefruit and cracker. Some white bread. Light sweetness. Taste has more citrus, yet still presented in moderate amounts. More grapefruit and some lemon. Somewhat of a dry body, medium light feel. High medium carbonation. Simple, inoffensive yet passable. Unexciting, but drinkable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a golden blonde colour, with slight cloudiness. The white head is about a half-finger thick, and loses cohesion quickly leaving behind a creamy cap and collar, with lots of lacing. The smell is pretty nice - grapefruit citrus, grassy hops, some sweetish grain malts underneath. Looks like a blonde ale, but definitely smells more like a pale ale...

It tastes like one too. Caramel, lightly roasted grain malts, a bit biscuity or bready. This sweetness is nicely balanced with a nice, earthy, slightly bitter hop bite in the finish. The bitterness lingers for a bit in the finish, encouraging you to keep sipping. Light mouthfeel with moderate carbonation that prickles the tongue. Easy to throw back, and the flavour is nice enough that it would be a pleasure rather than a chore to do so.

This isn't anything fancy but it's still refreshing as hell. A tasty summer patio beer that I would consider getting again; unfortunately I have never seen this in my LCBO with the exception of inside the OCB mixer pack this one came in.

[Updated Jan. 21 2014]

Tried this stuff again, re-branded as 'Crosswind Pale Ale'. This is one of those beers that I have had on multiple occasions and seems to have a few different 'faces'. Sometimes I will get an odd split pea soup aroma - and this time in particular, there is a lot of popcorn butter flavour, even though the expiry date is in February. Most of the cans I've had of this have been pretty decent (like the original review), and I'm only bringing up this anecdote because it doesn't really make me want to keep purchasing the stuff. There are too many other reliably great blonde or pale ales available these days for me to want to return to this occasionally good one.

Final Grade: 3.36, a B-.

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

Light amber in color. Okay clarity. Weak regarding head. Thin ring still available.

Pale malts with a touch of honey or light caramel. Light pine and thin slices of citrus fruits, compliments of the hop bill. Well-balanced, but unexceptional.

Mucky and tinny. Malty sweet with pine hops and herbal astringency. Mild-to-moderate bitterness. Dry finish. Still lingering with a note of buckwheat honey. Latent roastiness. Mostly cereal grains, of note. Orange pith and slight lime zest. Average, if not a smidge better.

Medium-bodied. Carbonation has some flight, but it's down a notch. Easy to get through.

A so-so ale. Distinct, in that I can recognize its flaws. Nothing to turn away from. Try-able.

Another of local, in-person trader tone77's many bottles. I marvel each and every time he comes by to drop off beer.

From the bottle: "Fresh citrus notes and medium hop bitterness are balanced by the subtle sweetness of premium malt and roasted grains, resulting in a crisp finish that always lands clean."; "Brewed & Bottled in Baysville, Ontario Handcrafted in Small Batches".

Wow, but the finger of foamy, tawny head disappeared in the blink of an eye! Color was a deep golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Nose had citrus hops offset by a biscuit maltiness. Mouthfeel was medium and the hops interacted well with the malt to give it a honey-like sweetness, more reminiscent of a lager than an ale. Finish was semi-sweet and eminently quaffable. I got some nice lacing along the sides of the glass as I drank through it. It was nothing stand-out or particularly memorable, but nor was it tough to swallow (no pun intended). It was a nice, simple beer and a nice way to wind down at the end of another day. Worth a try.

341ml bottle, day 16 of the 2013 Craft Beer Advent Calendar.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, lightly creamy, and generally bubbly off-white head, which leaves some creepy layered fishbone lace around the glass as things duly recede.

It smells of orange creamsicle, semi-sweet, almost cake-like bready caramel malt, a sugary melon fruitiness, and a tame piney, leafy hop bitterness. The taste is more sweet orange fleshiness, not quite so candy-esque now, a decent caramel malt, touched by a toffee/maple blend, more grainy, sweetened bread, and prominently low-key, but sneakily effective herbal, leafy hops.

The carbonation is pretty soft and innocuous, just strong enough to provide basic support, the body an adequate medium weight, and rather smooth, with a lilting creaminess. It finishes well off-dry, the caramel malt, breadiness, and fruit barely tempered by the remaining bittering hops.

One of those offerings that inspires that conundrum of 'well, it tastes all right, but it's hardly even close to the purported style. What to do, what to do?' Here, we have a pretty heady cream or blonde ale (as it is justly classified on this site), one with actual inherent flavours as such. However, the hops that one should expect in the advertised pale ale are barely noticeable, so, sadly the overall score suffers accordingly.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

473 ml can purchased from LCBO for about $2.50 CDN. Served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - Crystal clear, crisp dark golden color with honey hues and lots of bubbles. 2.5 fingers of frothy dense white head and surprisingly good retention time and leaves some streaky lacing. After a few minutes left with a nice foamy cap on top.

Smell - Sweet, maple syrup-esque aroma with some faint grains and bready smell. Definitely malt dominated as caramel is quite perceptible and overall a faint sweetness permeates from the glass. Pretty good overall.

Taste - Again the maple syrup, caramel and molasses flavor are well ingrained, and the layers of malt keep hitting you but in a refined balanced sort of way. Hops not really present here, but just enough to keep from malt overkill.

Mouthfeel - Smooth with light mouthfeel with medium-low carbonation.Close to being considered watery in thin, but the way the beer coats the tongue is close to be described as syrupy at the same time which is a bit odd.

Overall - really pleasantly surprised with this beer as it was quite good and enjoyable, maintaining its thirst quenching properties but also giving you a dose of multiple malts.

473ml can poured into a mug. ABV 5%.

A - Poured a clear deep gold with a 2cm frothy white head. Head reduced to a ring and some surface bubbles. Some lacing.

S - Mild caramel, some honey, some citrus, herbal, hint of spice.

T - Light honey like sweetness, grain notes, hint of citrus, hint of spice, medium-mild herbal bitter finish. Barely any aftertaste.

M - Medium-light carbonation, medium body, dry & clean finish.

O - I like this one. Easy to drink. Good pale ale. (Judging by other reviews, I'm in the minority that appreciate this beer.) It has recently become a staple in my fridge.

Notes: I've also had the 5L mini keg. Tastes pretty much the same but the carbonation is much lower and the mouthfeel a tad creamier as a result making it more reminiscent of some British pale ales I've had.

Bucky had been wanting to try another of Lake of Bays brews for quite some time, and finally found some single cans of their Crosswind Pale Ale in his local liquor store. Crosswind came in a 473 ml can with the 'Best Before' date blurred beyond distinction. The beer was 5.0% alcohol by volume.

Crosswind poured an attractive clear deep gold, which became deeper still when backlit. Plenty of fast rising bubbles were visible. Pouring produced about 1/2" of frothy white head, which faded to a thin collar of foam and patchy film within two minutes. For a beer that didn't retain much foam, Crosswind left a surprising amount of lacing and some spotting down the glass.

Crosswind's aroma was a combination of sweet, light malts, with notes of grapefruit and pine. Its taste followed the aroma exactly, beginning with a caramel sweetness which gave way to light notes of grapefruit and pine, and finishing with a mild bitterness which lingered briefly as an aftertaste. Very refreshing...just a touch of the grapefruit and pine without too much bitterness. There is a nice balance to the flavours here. Crosswind had a medium level of carbonation, was relatively light bodied, with a crisp, clean mouthfeel.

Overall, I was happy I stumbled across these single cans and gave Crosswind a try. A solid, easy drinking pale ale that does indeed deliver "surprising depth for its lightness". Crosswind Pale Ale sells for $2.65 per 473 ml can...not cheap, but a 'not unreasonable' price.

T- Excellent! Enjoyed this mildly hoppy IPA. Very good try

M- Pretty good. Nice and dry without much hop aftertaste

This nice little IPA paired well with... Lemon Chicken. The lemon citrus and grapefruit really accentuates the chicken. Give it a try!
