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.

mcberko (8529) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
On tap at Bar Volo, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of floral notes, some minty notes, and some residual candied sugar. Flavour is fairly muted, with notes of minty notes, biscuit, and lemon. Not a very interesting or thirst-quenching pale. Decent.

lusikka (6874) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2014
473 ml can. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a beautiful lacy white head. Aroma of citrus, some harsh grainy notes and mango. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, pine, citrusy bitterness, dried fruits and grass. Medium bodied, harsh mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Not as fresh as I hoped for, but still good.

473 ml can.
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Aroma is hoppy and fruity, some pine needle notes as well as some wood. Flavor is a bit harsh with bitter malts, resinous hops and grass. Doesn’t seem that fresh anymore, a bit too harsh.

Idiosynkrasie (4575) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2014
473ml can. Minimally cloudy golden to amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Caramel malty aroma, citrusy hoppy overtones, hints of grapefruit and pine. Taste is bitter hoppy, citrusy, notes of grapefruit, a touch of lemon, caramel malty background with a biscuity touch; super soft palate, fairly lasting crisp bitter hoppy finish. Clean, precise, superb soft mouth-feel.
