Crosswind Pale Ale – Lake of Bays Brewing (December 16, 2013)

Beer Advent Calendar 2013

From Lake of Bays Brewing Company out of Baysville, Ontario comes their “Crosswind Pale Ale”.  The beer pours a golden colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of apple juice with some mild malts.  The flavour is of apple juice, citrus, grainy malts and some minor hops.  The alcohol content is 5%.  This is a pretty good beer and very refreshing although I was surprise how much like a hopped apple juice it tasted like.

Commercial Description: Pours with a brilliant golden colour and a nice white foam in which the bubbles are generous. The aromatics are primarily citrus and range between lemon and grapefruit. There are also hints of caramel, toasted grains and a touch of fresh apple. The flavours include toasted bread and a slight note of toffee and stewed apple. The mouth feel is quite dry and the finish is quick with some mild, lingering bitterness.
