Sometimes our neighbours are just too enticing to resist! In this case, our newest ward-winning product pays homage to our naughty neighbours to the south, as our American Pale Ale has something for everyone! For hop lovers, the huge aroma of citrus and pine greet the nose and the hops continue on the palate as hoppy flavour persists, leaving a remarkably easy drinking crisp, dry finish. We pack all this hop aroma and flavour in a brew that is only 4.9% on purpose, which leaves a hugely sessionable beer that is perfectly refreshing on hot summer days! No additives. No preservatives. Naturally carbonated for a smooth, crisp finish.

The aroma is a bit like soap. Hazy body, small head. Quite boring but good hops at the end.

0.473 can. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. The aroma is hoppy, citric, resinous, piney, and fruity. Taste of fruits hits first and then a delicate, piney bitterness which grows to dominate the flavor with every sip. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is long, bitter, hoppy, somewhat fruity as well. Overall quite a good, balanced beer - certainly a nice find in the cold north.

Tessic (983) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 6, 2015
This pale ale poured a med/light yellow colour with a fast dying head. Scents include grapefruit/citrus hops, hay and dough. First swig was quite refreshing with flavours of fruit juice and honey. Finish is quite bitter with hoppy flavour lingering...

It pours gold with straw highlights; the head is off-white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: mango, pine needles, and honey. The taste is lightly bitter that finishes as such; there are notes of: pine, grapefruit-zest, and cereal. The palate is light-medium bodied, has light carbonation and a short finish. Overall, itís nicely fruity - quite light though.

One of my all-time favorites. The hops have a crispness compared to higher-alcohol IPAs. Very refreshing and light, but definitely still a full-flavored beer.

This is one of my go-to beers. Always have a 6-pack or a couple cans on hand as itís a very easy-drinking beer and a top notch pale ale that is very flavourful but not too hoppy or bitter. It also looks great

On tap at Barley Brothers. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma combines tropical fruit with sweet citrus and has a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has more straw and grain with supporting notes of earthy citrus underlying.
