Clear and copper coloured, it is fruity on the palate and hearty in hops with a nice, round finish. We are honoured that Pale Ale continues to be BC’s most popular craft brew.

Overall, there is nothing wrong with this beer. It's been a staple of the Spring lineup for as long as I can remember. It looks fairly good, has a very faint aroma, and like many of OK Spring beers, is a bit thin in the mouth. The flavor is certainly pleasant - just enough malt and hops to make it "above average". It's not a beer I would actively seek out, but I certainly wouldn't turn one down, were it offered to me.

341 ml bottle served cold into a pint glass. Received as part of a gift pack for a birthday gift.

Appearance - clear rich golden color with some amber hues. Few visible bubbles and a small one finger white head with mediocre retention. No lacing left behind either.

Smell - mild mealtimes with a slight sweet vega give hoppy funk. Not unpleasant but not nearly as crisp almost pale ales. A little bit macro- ish.

Taste - an adjunct like sweet corn flavor followed by a brief earthy hop flavor. Some tea like characteristics in there. Not what I'm looking for in a pale ale.

Mouthfeel - a little flat on the plate and on the tongue, thin bodied and a bit watery.

Overall - a mediocre pale ale that has more macro- ish charactistics than just about any other playable I've had.

This beer didn't do it for me. It's not a bad beer, but I don't think it's anything special, and when it comes to personal preference, it's not for me.
