Black Creek Pale Ale (Canada - Ontario - Toronto)

Black Creek Pale Ale (Canada - Ontario - Toronto) 5.0%

Strongly malty aroma with molasses and roast. Also a bitter mildly hoppy aroma in the background. A fairly dark amber colour, bordering on brown, in a glass.

Sweet, malty taste with a hint of honey, more than a touch of roast with a light grain finish. Moderately bitter to go along with quite a bit of spicy vegetal hops flavour. Black Creek Historic Brewery's Pale Ale is a bit like a darker (in both colour and flavour) version of a Standard Bitter English Pale Ale and doesn't quite have the strong hops flavour of an American Pale Ale. Being made with a receipe from the 1800s, I'm not sure of the exact style category this Pale Ale would fall under (let me know in the comments if you know), but it is really quite a nice Pale Ale.
