Easy drinking and yummy, very well balanced. Crisp, smooth, bright. Goes well with food, rich or mild.

A: 1/2" cream coloured head that dissipated quickly over hazy reddish-amber liquid.

S: Nutty malt and yeast.

T: Some earthy hops at the front end, nutty malt in the middle, with a pleasant aftertaste. Nicely balanced.

M: Thin with a medium to low level of fine carbonation.

O: Very refreshing and drinkable above-average American Pale Ale. A balanced and tasty beer that would be great for summer.

They originally blended 2 worts to produce this beer... their IPA and I assume their pale ale? Not sure if their still doing it, but the 35IBU extra pale ale is quite nice.

A: Copper bronze with an off-white head, light retention, hint of lace.

S: The aroma is really British, with earthy mineral and some light fruity esters.

T: At only 5% abv, this brew packs some good flavour, with an exquisit balance. The slightly earthy bitterness is upfront, pleasant fruity esters (bubblegum, pear & apple), biscuity malt with hints of light caramel. Crisp and refreshing with a noble bitterness that doesn't linger.

M: Well-attenuated, light to moderate body has a crisp finish.

D/O: Really well-crafted and extremely drinkable. Must seek out the restaurant!

Had this at Guu Restaurant in Vancouver. Hands down the best local beer we had in town at a pretty fantastic Japanese Tapas Restaurant. I considered this part of the menu. It is a amber colored beer that pours with decent head that thins out some. The smell is caramel and warm bread. The taste is more caramel and malt with a herbal-lite bitter aftertaste. Tastes like it is all barley similar to Fullers ESB. This is no Kirin. This is an english bitter beer and should be recatagorized. Suprisingly world class in a world class Japanese restaurant. Fantastic with the pork cheek.

Nice self-described "extra pale ale" from Russell, done I believe for a Japanese restaurant.

Light copper with orange hues to it. Bready malts, a little bit of brown sugar and hop fruitiness.

Smooth creamy taste, nice maltiness with traces of sugar and even caramel apple. Light hop character.

Carbonation is a little bit rough and could be smoothed out a bit more, but overall this is a nice accompaniment to food or even good on it's own.
