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.

Pours a clear medium orangish amber with a nice frothy white head. Aroma of pale malts, caramel, citrus and piney hops. Taste is sweet malts balanced well with citrus, pine and light resin with a medium bitterness. Excellent balance of hops and malts.

This is a nice sessionable IPA. It lacks a little bit of character in the middle section, but it’s got a nice nose and a nice dry finish. The usual APA fare: orange, grapefruit, a bit of pine. A bit of caramel from a decent, but slightly flimsy malt. As a tasting beer, this is good, and worth a try. As a sesh beer it’s extremely drinkable. Similar to, but not quite as good as, Rhyme and Reason by Collective Arts.

Blonde mi-mince qui se trouble à mesure que son important dépôt de levure vient la brouiller ; nez en houblons floraux et fruités. Petite couronne de mousse. La bouche est savoureuse, fruitée elle aussi, avec une finale tout juste herbacée qui donne une signature épicée, plutôt qu’amère. Douce mais savoureuse, désaltérante tout en étant assez dense, elle est un excellent exemple de ce genre, bien qu’elle ne soit pas exactement originale.

Bottle from lcbo. Pours a hazy orange/yellow with a white head. Aroma is fruity with pineapple, light caramel and orange. Light to medium body, light carbonation. Orange, white bread, light caramel, grass, pine, lemon... Lovely balanced light quaffable beer. Nice bitter finish too.

Bottle bought at the Nickelbrook brewery in Burlington/Canada. Overall a fantastic American pale ale. I fell in love with this style during my Canada visit in June and early July 2014. I had many American pale ales in that time in Toronto and this one is definitely among them.

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.

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.

Very nice beer. I haven’t figured out all the tastes but the bitterness came out well.
