3.3/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear golden/orange with two fingers worth of foamy off white head. Settles to a nice cap and left tons of lacing.

S: At first you get a small dose of hops but then its followed by some lemon citrus and caramel malt.

T: Malty with a bit of citrus and hops on the end. The taste is pretty thin though but it finishes very clean.

M: Medium carbonation with a light to medium body.

O: This actually surprised me a bit. I was expecting one of those below average beers companies put out that they call a pale ale but they aren’t anything close to one. This one was pretty good and would be very easy to session.

Can: Poured a light amber color ale with a medium foamy head with average retention and no lacing. Aroma of light citrus hops with medium sweet caramel malt. Taste is blander then expected with light hoppy notes of citrus with a sweeter then expected malt backbone. Body is a bit thin with good carbonation. Not very remarkable overall.

I had this at the Arts Club lounge the day they put in new copper lines and it really made this beer taste fresh and good. The colour is dark gold with a decent head. The nose is hoppy yet restrained. The taste is malty with good hop notes bringing up the charge. It had a typical restrained BC feel with English grain bill. A definite must try on tap in Vancouver.

Now available in cans (as of March 2008). Tastes just as good as draft and I love any addition to craft beers in cans
