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.

My experience with this beer was very disappointing. The aroma that first hit me was not apealing to me. First taste had the hint of bitterness that I enjoy but then I was hit with the flavour of bad grapefruit. Totaly turned me off. Could not finish my glass. Only the second beer ever that I could not finish

2014/07/12 - Pours a hazy, dark orange/copper colour with a small, off white, fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is caramel, grapefruit, citrus, pine and grassy notes. Taste is grapefruit, pine, biscuit and caramel. Mildly sweet and mildly bitter. Mouthfeel is thin to medium with soft arbitration and a crisp, mildly drying finish. Full of flavour, but light and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Una cervesa lleugera, amb un molt bon aspecte de color carmel, força escumosa amb un agradable gust i aromes a llúpol, però l’envàs no acompanya i la cervesa te un regust a llauna.

50cl can shared by Dutchdrebus @ weekly tasting. Hazy yellow color, medium sized white head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma has malts, spruce, resin. Taste malts, resin, hops, bitter. Way more resin than I’d expect from an APA. I like it though.
