Can. Despite the puerile name, this is a surprisingly well-made pale ale. Low expectations begin with the medium-gold appearance, while the gravel and high-hop aroma profile quickly raises those expectation. Gratifyingly full-bodied, generously bitter without being overblown, a gravel-like texture, and a pleasant dark chocolate nuance on the finish. I will drink again, just not ask for it by name...

Translucent yellow-gold body with average head. Mild nose is crisp, refreshing grapefruit hops with piney backdrop, hints of caramel. Taste is sweet, citrusy, and well balanced. Slightly nutty bitter finish. Low to medium carbonation, smooth and easy-drinking. High quality product.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich amber coloured body with a copper glow and a nice, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of super fresh hops, earth, caramel and a touch of grain. Medium-bodied; Strong hop flavour at first with some subdued earth, toffee, caramel and rye flavours and a lot of fresh hop bitterness toward the end. Aftertaste shows a bit of grass, a lot of caramel and some toffee as well. Overall, a nice and respectable beer with a lot of fresh hop notes and some subtle caramelised sugar flavours throughout. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from the LCBO on Wellngton (underground) near York Street a few hours ago on 08-August-2016 for CA$2,65 sampled in my hotel room a few hours later here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 08-August-2016.

Une bière de bucheron. Arome de pamplemousse, citron et légèrement épineux! En bouche, semblablement la même chose, et goût fruité acide, floral... Moyenne amertume qui perdure sous des notes malté et fruité!
