Very hazy orange pour. Lots of sediment. Haven’t seen sediment like that since our trip to Montreal. Foamy white head. Very strong Pale Ale hops grapefruit scent. Yep it’s a pale ale alright. I’m very surprised as I haven’t haven’t had much Nickelbrook that I’ve 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 don’t 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.

Grapefruit and a few other citrus flavours are all over this delicious session beer, which was created for the patio and the summer sun. Light in body but very hoppy.

HopsandBolts (172) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2015
473 ml can from the LCBO.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden colour with a finger of white head. Decent retention with an average amount of lacing.

Aroma: Hops, citrus, grapefruit.

Flavours: Grapefruit, orange, mango, hops.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with higher carbonation.

Overall: What a great pale ale! Tons of grapefruit, citrus and hops without an overwhelming amount of alcohol.

Tap at Beer Revolution YEG. Hazy dark yellow in colour. Creamy and tightly beaded white cap. Citrusy nose. Grains, citrus and a bit of fruit taste, bit of dryness in the end. Pretty drinkable.

sebletitje (7492) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2015
50cl can via IP trade in Brussels, thanks to asheft - Alex. Canned 03/16/2015. De couleur dorée voire orangée sur un léger trouble, col fin blanc. Arôme est houblonné et franchement bien agréable sur des notes tropicales, résineuses avec un zeste de fruits verts, un petit rétro rappelant les pellettes et l’épinard. Palais reste tout autant attractif avec un bel effort au niveau des houblons, malt léger de type carapils et pâle. Retrouve un fruité rappelant le melon sur une pointe tropicale ainsi que qcq agrumes. A 4.9%, c’est léger, complexe et bien au-delà de ce que l’on trouve côté belge en terme d’IPA de qualité.

Canette de 473ml. Arôme résineux rafraîchissant. Belle couleur dorée un peu voilée avec un col persistant dune belle couleur blanche. En bouche c’est très rafraîchissant. Une très bonne session pale ale.

ametras (691) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015

SlovakSniper (3722) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
(Bière née le 04/20/15) Un liquide blond et un anneau de mousse blanche qui laisse une longue traînée. Au nez, agrumes, conifères et malts pâles et poussière. Au goût, léger sucre des malts, citrons pressés et longue touche florale. En bouche, corps moyen-fort avec un jeu modéré des bulles et une texture huileuse. Finale parfumée comme un thé glacé au citron. Facile à boire. 2.85$ pour 473 ml. Bon deal.

473ml can brought back from Canada by Sarah. Unfiltered orange-yellow body. Frothy off-white head. Crisp mild lemony tinged hops, maybe some amarillo too. Thin pale golden malt body almost like a Golden Ale or Session IPA. Pretty good, sensible Canadian/UK feel. Very sessionable. OK.

Tall boy can. Semi-filtered amber body, medium white head, lightly carbonated. Aromas are sweet citrus, but with some caramel maltiness underlying it. Mouthfeel is that combination of crisp and creamy, that I really like in a beer. There is a nice light citrus on the tongue, but again a very nice balance to it with caramel malts definitely in the mix. With its low 4.9% ABV and only 38 IBU, this might be the ultimate gateway beer for people looking to move away from macros, who aren’t quite yet ready to graduate to the heavy hitting IPAs. Regardless, I could quaff this thing on outdoor summer patios all day long.

Can from the LCBO. Huge hop dominated aroma of grapefruit, grapefruit rind and citrus. All big C’s, god damn this is North American as shit. Not as bitter on the finish as the aroma would indicate, quite smooth and crisp. Almost pilsner-esque in terms of hoppy character on the finish .Light straw body with a thin white head.
