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.

Can (473 ml). Extra from TheJester, thanks Andy! Slightly hazy golden/amber with a medium off-white head, good retention and good lacing. Aroma is of citrus, malt and floral hops... simple yet effective. Taste is slightly sweet with citrus, floral notes, malt and a light bitter finish. Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Dry finish. Very good American Pale Ale. Drinkable and well balanced. A tad too malty, but still really enjoyable.

Can shared by Tom10101, thanks! A text book American Pale Ale, with good floral hops, citrus and some malt. Refreshing and well balanced.

CANUCKLEHEAD! The cask, dry-hopped version of Crazy Canuck is an absolute joy. In Ontario only Great Lakes and Durham seem to consistently turn out fantastic cask versions of their hoppy ales. Incredibly sessionable with a strong hop bite that somehow still leaves your taste buds intact. I could drink this all night, and have.

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.

From le can. Yellowish orange pour with a decent, white head. Aromas of tropical fruit and pine. Creamy texture and has that nice balance of crisp hops and some faint malty sweetness. One of the better Canadian beers I have tried, and it comes in a pretty bad ass can.

Nice citrus/pine hop bouquet with a good caramalt backbone, fruity bitter finish. Tried both can and draft, nice crisp, a solid Ontario APA.

Eyes tell me it’s clear Golden and fizzy and got some bubbles. Nose smells me grapefruit, varied citrus, choicest peppery hops and a quality malt arrangement. Mouth confirms that which nose reports, rejoices at bitter sweet harmony. Palate is refreshed and thanks GLB. Wonderful. Bravo.

Fresh can from the brewery. Nose is grapefruit, pine and floral hops. Same notes on the taste. Moderate bitterness. Thin body. Very balanced and easy drinking. Nice hoppy quaffer.
