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.

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 wasn’t put off by the butteriness (is that a word?). The patriotic angle might just be shrewd, especially during the Olympics. Go Canada Go.

Draught at C’Est What. Pours a clear golden-orange with a spare diminishing white head. Aroma of light resiny hops, grain, caramel malt and citrus fruit. Flavour of resiny hops backed by caramel malt and a finish that’s quite bitter. Average bodied. Very good on tap.

Alpha10 (639) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
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

Can from The Beer Store August 2013. Labeled as "Crazy Canuck". Quite hoppy with citrus and floral aromas that fill the nose. Long finish.

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.

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.
