On-tap at Triple Rock

A: The pour is a straw yellow color with a moderately sized white head.

S: The hops character seems to be more floral here with some slight fruit notes and a lightly sweet malt base. I get quite a bit of bread on the nose, too.

T: Bready and toasty in terms of the malt flavor, which is what this beer seems to be more about. Quite a bit of floral hop flavor with some hints of citrus and bitter pine notes.

M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation.

D: Not sure why this is called an APA on here, Triple Rock clearly had it called an English Pale ale at the brewpub, and as one of those, it succeeds quite nicely.

A - Served a clear copper-orange color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind come nice lace.

S - The aroma is a mix of sweet caramel malts with some citrus and floral hops.

T - Starts off with a mix of sweet caramel malts with some light citrus hop. Though the middle a touch of bitterness comes through alongside some more malt flavor and a bit of floral hop. The finish is a mix of sweet malts with some light bitterness and some citrus hop.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a crisp and refreshing finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice very sessionable pale ale. The flavors are not too bold, but they are nicely balanced making for a very refreshing beer.

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours yellow with a soft white head with nice lace.

S: Pineapple, starfruit and lemon zest make for a nice bouquet.

T: The serious lemon-lime flavour in the nose carries over. Lemon-lime Gatorade flavour with some almost wheaty malt in the finish.

M: Thinnish and watery. Pretty good overall body, with a nice creamy feel.

D: This is a tasty and intriguing pale ale that I would like to have another glass of to delve into further, unique.
