Black Creek Pale Ale

The Black Creek Historic Brewery, from Toronto, Ontario, is the source of Black Creek Pale Ale. BCPA comes in a 341mL bottle and clocks in at 5% alcohol. It pours a cloudy, brownish orange colour, and is topped with a lovely cream head that has excellent retention.

BCPA has an aroma that blends floral hops with a twist of citrus and a pinch of caramel. The flavour has some caramel notes, but bitter is clearly boss--this is a full bodied pale ale, with hops to spare. The only thing I'm not wild about is the aftertaste, which, in my opinion, has a somewhat flat note. Still, BCPA is a really enjoyable beer. It's well worth trying.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
