Dragoon's Breath Pale Ale

Another brew offered by Kingston, Ontario's Kingston Brewing Company, the Dragoon's Breath Pale Ale is a highly sessionable brew. I had a pint on tap at the brew pub. It's brewed on contract by the McAuslan Brewery in Montreal. It's listed at 4.5% alcohol, which makes it easy to drink.

It's a clear, copper-coloured offering with very little head. It has a very mild malt aroma. It moves from malty to bitter. Caramel notes give way to a coppery bitter finish. In addition, there's a little bit of an understated peach note lurking in the background.

It's perhaps a touch thin, but very drinkable. I'm pretty sure that I could make a barrel full disappear in a blink. If you find yourself in Kingston, this is a brew worth tracking down.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
