3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2010 Hello Ontario! 22oz bottle from LCBO. Pours a lovely, clear golden. Aroma is indeed buttery and sharp with hops. The taste is well worked. Floral, citrusy hops evident with a bready malt backing. Good lingering bitterness in the finish. I would also agree that this does remind me of Tankhouse but I wasnít put off by the butteriness (is that a word?). The patriotic angle might just be shrewd, especially during the Olympics. Go Canada Go.

Grapefruit, pine and hops. Cloudy amber with a thin white head, long lasting head. Grapefruit and hops...well balanced malt. Interesting, but not great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from tall can. Gold colour with decent white head. Aroma is grapefruit and some mild pine and floral. Taste is strong west coast hops without being too bitter and some mild light malt. Body is crisp and light without being too thin. Overall, almost an IPA in hops but lighter in body and malt.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650mL bomber from the likbo. Pours a nice copperish gold, paler than I was expecting. Large, rocky white froth. Aroma is mild but nice, some good hops upfront with non-typical Ontario malts backing them up. The flavour I actually find quite pleasing, lots of hoppyness upfront with some bitterness, descending into some mild but tasty biscuity toffee malt notes. Very tasty, reminds me of Sgt. Majorís when itís on. Some minor butter like others have mentioned but itís honestly so subtle and drowned out by the good aspects I can hardly see how it could be considered a major flaw. This is probably my favourite GL brew Iíve had to date and I will definitely purchase more, because itís so tasty but also to support a micro brewer while f***ing Molsonís has its usual stiffling strangle hold on the Olympics. Very good effort, I must have a particularly good bottle since I donít completely comprehend the mediocre over-all rating, but to each their own as the saying goes. Not really a west-coast pale ale so complaints against the advertising are legitimate. On itís own itís a solid beer so I hope they just adjust the blurb on what itís ísupposedí to be.

473ml can (labelled as Crazy Canuck Pale Ale)
I tried this beer on June 10, 2011 after purchasing from the Queenís Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer pours a translucent light golden amber with a this rocky tan coloured cap. The aroma is bready malt, and citrusy hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is primarily citrusy hops, grain, and an odd perfumy flavour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big olí can. Hazy golden honey pour with an almost white head that leaves a fairly thick ring of lace. Fresh citrus notes with a light burnt note, some grain and a little off note I canít quite identify. Less citrus on the palate (but itís still there) with a light caramel flavour. Slightly astringent with a hint of cardboard. Decent enough for a session brew.

bottle. Poured clear copper with a rocky off-white lasting head. Inviting floral hop aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a creamy texture. Flavours of caramel, grapefruit and a lingering herbal hoppiness throughout . Iím not a huge fan of APAs but I could drink this one.
