COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s been said that “Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity.” This beer doesn’t help much with that crisis. From the fiercely irresponsible stereotypical image on the front of the can to the distinctly American style of the beer inside it – we’ve really made a mess of things. What have we done? Sorry.

a can from the LCBO, must admit the new "art" can caught my eye. I know I have had this before but obviously forgot how good it was> pours a golden amber great head initial aroma is what beer is supposed to smell like, hoppy smokey, spicy, tasty. Overall very drinkable Pale Ale

Stoned99 (482) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2015
473ml can from LCBO. Aroma: tropical fruits, pineapples, oranges. App: hazy golden, small white ring in the middle. Taste and palate: medium body, resinous, average carbonation, clean light bitter finish. Overall: not bad but finish is too clean for me and not enough bitter.

Not bad, served from draught and they called it the Crazy Canuck. Nice scent with a nice color, initial taste is God without any aftertaste, not sure if it's a pale ale or IPA but it tastes fine ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dnicolaescu (1188) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 20, 2015
CAN 473 ml from bunget. Hazy golden, white frothy head. Moderate intensity aroma of tropical fruit, sweet citrus, a bit of dank, some caramel. The taste starts sweet, somewhat empty in the middle, CO2, clean moderately bitter finish. Quite nice, a bit too sweet.

bunget (671) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2015
473ml can. A hazy golden body, medium white head with poor retention but plenty of lacing. Aroma of stone fruits and honey, orange peel and hay. Taste of grapefruit, mango and a touch of pine. Light!

yourilevesque (312) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2015
Arômes de fruits tropicaux, de pain frais et d’un houblon printanier rappelant l’herbe coupée. Le liquide est trouble, effervescent et d’une douce légèreté. Je suis désaltéré avant même d’y goûter! Mes attentes sont comblées dès la première gorgée: celle-ci coule et rafraîchit tout sur son passage tel une brise maritime. Belle, délicate et à un prix fort attractif, cette bière a décidément tout pour elle!

dansway07 (1) - TORONTO, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2015 does not count
One of the best beers around and for a most reasonable price ($2.50 for a tall can). This has become my go-to beer of choice and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

redpooba (402) - New York, USA - APR 2, 2015
Very slightly hazy yellow ale with a dissipating white poppy head. The aroma is what really jumps out with a boutique of hops. The body is light and there is a bit of lingering bitterness, but the IBUs are low and friendly. It is a wonderfully refreshing beer.

flip_soeperman (768) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2015
Although the aroma dissapetes quickly, a nice boost of resin. Not too bitter, but ok. Medium bodied. I would have liked it to be more aggressive.
