3.58/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- Copper in colored and clear with an eggshell colored head that retains decently....starts about two fingers thick before receding into a nice looking layer over the beer. The carbonation looks to be plentiful, and with lots of big zingy looking bubbles rising. Giant clumps of sticky lace cover the side of the glass, which is always a good sign! Looks good overall!

S- Sweet malt dominates the aroma profile, although it is mild in a general sense. There are hints of toffee, molasses and brown sugar....things that make your nose perk up just a bit. Very mild hop presence on the finish too. I'd like to have just a little more richness detectable but it's not bad....

T- The flavors follow the aroma very closely...sweet malt is first noticed on the palate. There is a touch of roasted grain richness and the finish comes across slightly of butter, rather than with a dry and/or bitterness. Overall, I'd like to say that this has a honeyed quality to it!

M- Smooth! This is very creamy, as the carbonation if fine and buttery on my palate. The sweetness in the flavor is really allowed to shine though!

O- I won't call this top of the class, but this is definitely an above average brew we have here! It is very easy drinking and I feel that anyone should be able to enjoy it. It's clean, yet flavorful and did I mention that it's smooth? My only knock against this one is that it just doesn't stand out in the crowd. I do, however, recommend giving this one a try!

12oz can, with vaguely Canadiana-esque markings...

This beer pours a slightly hazy medium orange amber colour, with one finger of creamy foamy ecru head, which leaves a low wall of lace as it recedes. It smells of mild sweet biscuity grain, and floral/citrus hops. The taste is sweet bready malt, a bit of citrus bitterness, and leafy, kind of weedy, hops. The carbonation is moderate, the body medium in weight, and mostly smooth. It finishes consistently, balanced between the biscuit and the week-old flower notes.

For the buck-fiddy this cost me, I wasn't expecting much - so color me surprised, then, as this a pretty good APA. Kind of a minor league Full Moon, I would put forth, and a decent choice when you want a cheap, tasty sixer in aluminum.

A new brand I recently found, currently only available in cans. Brewed as Red Autumn Brewing Company, Revelstoke, BC.
www.redautumnbrewing.com

Pours a dark yellow / gold color with a pure white head. Foam forms quickly but then disappears just as quickly. Lots of carbonation, but not enough to maintain a head. Malty smell, some leafy hops, floral sweetness. Sweet malt, grainy flavor, grassy hops but could have more hop bitterness. Medium body, appropriate for the style. Easy to drink, but nothing stands out. Reminds me of Yukon Chilkoot.

355ml can downed july 21

A thought i bought a red ale, got a bronzed yellow with a fluffy pure white head (not dissapointed)

S honey with some malt and faint hops

T Sweet honey with some faint hops just like it smelled

M/D not too carbonated, not too thin went down smooth, looked twice and it was half gone

there must have been a mistake with the price tag, for the 8 bucks for my 6 pack i am stoked. you could spend more money on worse beer for sure

Yet another micro brewer (see Big Rock) attempting to capture some of the buck/Buck and a half per market.

Looks very, very good. Nice bright copper colour, thick tan head and great lacing.

Aroma is, well, what it is. Dressed down pale ale. Not offensive, but not upper tier. Toasted malts, hint of caramel and butter. Hops are definite Old World.

As a EPA, this would score higher..Decent pale malt flavour with a nice dry bitterness. Hint of butter toffee.

Quite watery @ first. Mouthfeel tough to gueage as the carbonation went flat rather quicky when poured in a glass.

Given the price ( $8.50 cdn per/6 ) it's not lights out, but think of it as a poor man's Kilkenny in terms of flavour only and....

Thanks to Bryan for the can. This beer is contract brewed at Mount Begbie for Red Autumn Brewing Company.

Pours a radiant gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is predominantly malt forward, bready and honey-like, with a subtle hop presence. Sweet, bready flavour, again with the honey, but then with some grassy and floral hoppy notes in the finish. Medium-light body and medium carb... its quite drinkable. Pretty basic, but clean and solid enough. Cheers Bry!
