Okanagan Spring Pale Ale: Well, this beer missed the mark for me. I expect a bit of hops from a pale ale. I admit that may US pale ales are brewed in IPA territory, too hoppy. But still, I need some. The Okanagan has a dark color for a pale ale, a deep tan. Good head and little aroma round out the presentation. Nice malts up front and a clean finish, but where are the hops? Not a bad drinking beer, so try it when you are next up in BC.

341ml bottle poured into a pint glass. ABV 5%.

A - Poured a clear copper with a thin head that was quickly gone. No lacing.

S - Caramel malts, some fruity notes, mild earthiness in the the back.

T - Caramel malts, hints of fruit, mild bitterness in the finish.

M - Medium carbonation, medium body, lightly syrupy, dry finish.

O - A bit better than your average macro beer but it's still pretty plain for the style.
