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.

Poured from the tap. Clear pale yellow with white head. Hoppy aroma, light caramel malt and citrus on the taste. Body is a little bit light.

Thick and dense yellow colour. A delight to look at actually but a very strong aftertaste that is metallic and abrasive. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Bottled sample. Gold in colour, with slight haze and medium carbonation. Aromas are of white grapefruit, pale malt, white pepper, and kitchen herbs. Juicy pink grapefruit and cut grass dominate the palate, backed by some light pale malt. Solid bitterness. Fresh and refreshing. Surprisingly good.

Rating #888 - January 6, 2014 - #mondaynightbeers @RevolutionYeg, 8 oz on draught, 5%, Dark amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is sweet piney, lemony, mild grassiness. Taste is a blast of citrusy sweetness, tempered by a decent punch of hoppy bitterness. Not unbelievably memorable, but a decent APA. Nice.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild citrus and pine with some cereal grains. Taste is a malty and fruity sweetness with a light citrus and pine hop bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A nicely done pale ale that I was genuinely surprised about when tasting.
