A fairly bland pale ale. Not much hop aroma or flavour. Just some bitterness with a slightly sweet malt bill. Standard form LOB.

Very good Ontario pale ale. Flavourful without being heavy. Many sub flavours with a light smokiness.

Nice blonde color, good carbonation, deeper flavors than generic big company IPA s but not enough for me to repurchase this beer.
