deepeary (172) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Very intense juicy hop nose, dank pine resin, citrus. Taste follows the nose, but less intense. Really good. I wish it had a longer finish. Well balanced.

Crockett (1012) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle. Clear gold with lacing white froth head. Fresh wheatgrass nose. This isn’t in your face hoppy. And it is fairly plain. Some mild bubble-gum, peach tangerine, tinned mushroom, and cardboard. All very dull. Finish is washed out yet dry at the same time. Carbonation is very soft. Best part: only bought one bottle. This is expensive. Could pass for an extremely safe "American Pale" from a macro. *shrug*

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2014
2013-02-08. Orangey amber body with a nice off white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy with lightly green mild fruity touches. Flavour is moderately hoppy and bitter throughout. Average bodied palate, carbonation. Enjoyable but just okay. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

Papillon (380) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2014
750mL Bottle. Yellow-gold body with a frothy white head settling to a film leaving lots of blotchy lace. Intense resiny hops are the main feature in the aroma; citrus and floral notes. And flavor! Pale sweet malts shine through without imposing in any way lime the bouquet. Herbal hop aftertaste followed by a long smooth linger. Smooth and silky mouth feel.

gilvanblight (801) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
*Beer Review* Nicklebrook Wet Hop Pale Ale. Very yellow wheat like pour. Quite a bit of fizzy white head that is leaving rather nice lacing. Slight hoppy scent. Not as strong as expexted. What an odd taste. It tastes wet. Seiously it tastes wet. Recently washed. Sweet finish. A bit of bitterness in the middle. Easy to drink. A bit odd but jothing special.

Metalchopz (2405) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2013
Single bottle at the LCBO and did not recognize that this was a beer from this brewery, as it is quite different from their others. Pours a slight hazed, golden colour with a small frothy head that leaves a creamy slim top and lacing all-around. The mouthfeel is wet (like the title implies) with the hop in the background, and the grain that lingers a bit with the light grass. Quite a nice, grainy and mildly hoppy Pale Ale that is easy to drink. Having this one before my Christmas eve dinner.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
750 mL bottle from the LCBO, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy golden with a small white head that fades quickly to a thin remnant, leaving no lace. The nose is fresh with notes of grapefruit, lemon, pale malts, grass and flowers. The flavour is mild, with a light malty sweetness paired with subtle floral and tropical fruity hops. It closes out with a subtle, English-style hop finish. On the palate it is light in body with a watery texture and minimal carbonation. Overall, this is a very soft pale ale with minimal hops and a light, watery body. Wet or dry, this could use more hops. 2013-12-12
