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.

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.

Can: Pour was medium gold with a thick white head. aroma was tropical fruit, some citrus as well, biscuits and honey. flavour was more of the same, bready malt, light caramel, tropical fruit, grapefruity citrus presence. Only a light bitterness to the finish for me though.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2015 500mL can from LCBO. Slightly hazy yellow with a long-lasting creamy head. Mild aroma of hops, which is slightly metallic. Taste is decent, some piny and fruity hops and bread, with a mildly bitter, watery, and metallic finish. Feels a little thin, possibly because 5.2% ABV is a little low for the style. A fine session ale, or a good stepping stone for those not yet acquainted with the greatness of hoppy ales. Sampled at the brewery, where it tasted slightly better, and smelt significantly better. Update: now called "canuck pale ale", and seems better.

Fresh bottle sample- Medium gold pour, with a moderate frothy cap. Aromas of buttered toast, floral hops, white bread, perfume. Strange flavour profile. Has fresh floral hops and a marked lemony bitterness, with a buttery flavour that leads to sweet bready malts. Seems like some sort of hybrid or cross style. It is ok, but what is going on with the butter? I had enough on my toast this morning, thanks. I’ll give it a whirl again, but I’d like to see the butter go away.

650 ml bomber. clear pale gold, medium white head. A Crazy Canuck American Pale winter seasonal, eh? Someone’s confused. Tastes like an IPA to me... this ones all hop. Lovely floral, spruce, and citrusy hoppy aroma, medium bitter taste with some malt hidden behind. Bitter finish.

Really strong taste of caramel on this one. Tastes like a good pale ale but has a bitter bite at the end.
