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.

Very hazy orange pour. Lots of sediment. Havenít seen sediment like that since our trip to Montreal. Foamy white head. Very strong Pale Ale hops grapefruit scent. Yep itís a pale ale alright. Iím very surprised as I havenít havenít had much Nickelbrook that Iíve actually found to be any good. This must be the exception that proves the rule. Now anyone who has been following my rates knows, I am not a pale ale fan. I donít like that tart hoppy grapefruit like bite. This is no exception but it fades very quick with pretty much no aftertaste. So yeah Nickelbrook makes a rather good beer. Who knew.

At a tasting, thanks, cloudy very light orange color, aroma of pomelo orange and shrubs, soapy flowery shrubby flavor and bitterness with a light maltiness in the back. Nice and drinkable.

Pours cloudy gold with a frothy white head that laces the glass. Bold hoppy and citrus aroma. Good balance taste of citrus and tropical fruits, hops and a bit of malts. Good beer.

This was fine, big bold hop aroma, but seemed a bit thin on the body. Iíd order this one again knowing that it is below 5%.

Listigovers (742) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
Very cloudy golden beer. Smells orange, citrus and some resin. Light-medium bodied with good carbonation and hop crispness. Lightly bitter finish, really easy drinking, good.

Papillon (394) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
473 mL Can. Deep gold body with a 3-finger frothy head settling but clinging and leaving blotchy lace. Grapefruit rind is first in line in the aroma, intense resiny hops, notes of grass and clover. A definite IPA taste of sweet light malts and grapefruit rind hops, citrus-sour astringent aftertaste, grapefruit rind finish. Perhaps a bit thin-bodied for a real IPA.

rumproasts (4716) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2016
bottle. Golden with three finger head. A gusher when I popped the cap, definitely overcarbonated. Medium body with caramel and earthy, herbal notes. Moderate hop bitterness. Would be much better without the carbonation issues.

DSG (10579) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 10, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troubles. Cloudy yellow with a white head. Lovely fruity hoppy aroma, citric and slightly tropical. Flavor is quite dry, with lots of citric and slightly tropical hops. Medium-bodied. Good one.

Extreme gusher!!! Right out of frig and carefully handled. Lots of floaties, which I like. Aroma and flavor decent...but not unique.
