Metalchopz (2275) - 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.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2013
A hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with nice citrusy floral hops, peaches, nice. In mouth, a smooth fruity malt with light grassy floral hops, a bit light but nice. Cask Days 2013.

solidfunk (3928) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Aroma of some citrus hops with a lot of malt here. More like an English Pale Ale in flavour. Leaves with light bitterness. Pours clear orange with decent head and lacing. Bottle.

neuromatt (1154) - 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

Bendrixian (1106) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2013
pours slightly cloudy with a pillowy with head. Aroma of hops, citrus and some pungentness. It is a medium bodied brew with a watery mid-palate and light finish. there is some hops but this is rather boring beer. I’m not buying another one of these light beers I’m also getting tired of all these ontario brewers making watery beers.

gilvanblight (775) - 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.

Crockett (1008) - 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*
