Style: Pale Ale
ABV: 4.7%

Description: This is one of Mt. Begbie’s year-round offerings, and is fashioned using pale malt and mild hopping to achieve a smooth, sessional character. It also had the honor of being the Gold Medal Winner at the 2004 Canadian Brewing Awards.

Nose:  Rich malt, baked biscuits, mild floral and grassy hops
Taste: Smooth, creamy malt, mild tang and minerality, hint of citrus and grassy hops
