Okanagan Spring Pale Ale

The Okanagan Spring Brewery in Vernon, BC is responsible for this reddish gold pale ale. It's sold in incredibly busy 341mL bottles and contains 5% alcohol. According to the label, this is "BC's original & favourite Pale Ale."
It pours very clear with slight carbonation and a thin ring of white head. OSPA gives off a fruity aroma with a backing note of caramel. The flavour moves from sweet to bitter. Orange peel and raisin notes kick things off, gradually giving way to a hoppy finish.

Okanagan Spring Pale Ale is a mellow, drinkable pale ale. I can see why this beer is so popular in BC. It has good flavour and decent bitterness. However, a little more boozy kick would be a treat.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
