COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s been said that “Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity.” This beer doesn’t help much with that crisis. From the fiercely irresponsible stereotypical image on the front of the can to the distinctly American style of the beer inside it – we’ve really made a mess of things. What have we done? Sorry.

From tap. Pours hazy yellow, small white head. Aroma is peachy and slight melon fruity. Lingering fruity. Crisp hoppy. Lingering citrusy and crisp hoppy far finish.

Strong and fresh. Well carbonated with opaque, sunset orange body. Grapefruit and tangerine sweetness in nose that closely matches taste. Weighted, hoppy flavour in balance and moderation that develops into a light lemon mouthful with some lingering bitterness.

D’un beau jaune surmonté d’un infime col crémeux. Nez de pamplemousse, de pin. Une belle fraîcheur en bouche. On est dans le conifère, dans l’agrume confite... L’amertume domine, mais rien d’agressif. Une pale ale? On pourrait facilement me la faire passer pour une vraie IPA. Très bien!

Bière blonde de 5.2 % d’alcool. Elle possède un beau petit col mousseux et laiteux au versement. Elle possède un odorat amer de pamplemousse. Son goût est prenant, mélange de fruits de la passion et de pamplemousse. Elle garde son amertume en finale et celle-ci reste en bouche. Cependant, son aspect fruité la rend très agréable. Vraiment très bonne !

Plechovka, thanx Karol. Mútnejšia orangžová farba, biela pekná pena. Vôňa sladová, citrusová, jemne ananás. V chuti sladový základ, plné telo, jemne citrusové tóny, ananás, grapefruti. Príjemná dlhá horká dochuť. Veľmi osviežujúce a prudko piteľné.

A staple in the Ontario market. Very well balanced, hop forward pale ale. Great beer to pair with baseball ;)

The go-to beer at GLB, easy to find around town, easy to drink full of flavour and a great hop flavour all around. Not too heavy or big, not too bitter, but also not boring. Its not going to knock you off your chair, but it is going to get ordered again and again.

ComradeK (1241) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2016
Draught at The Craft Beer Market, Ottawa. Pours a clear medium gold, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts well and leaves very good lacing. The aroma offers light pine and fruity notes, along with smooth malt. Lime and pine up front give way to smooth caramel malt in the mid-palate. Pine hops give it a pleasing finish. A satisfying pale ale.

Translucent yellow-gold body with average head. Mild nose is crisp, refreshing grapefruit hops with piney backdrop, hints of caramel. Taste is sweet, citrusy, and well balanced. Slightly nutty bitter finish. Low to medium carbonation, smooth and easy-drinking. High quality product.

jgb9348 (6329) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Rich amber coloured body with a copper glow and a nice, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of super fresh hops, earth, caramel and a touch of grain. Medium-bodied; Strong hop flavour at first with some subdued earth, toffee, caramel and rye flavours and a lot of fresh hop bitterness toward the end. Aftertaste shows a bit of grass, a lot of caramel and some toffee as well. Overall, a nice and respectable beer with a lot of fresh hop notes and some subtle caramelised sugar flavours throughout. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from the LCBO on Wellngton (underground) near York Street a few hours ago on 08-August-2016 for CA$2,65 sampled in my hotel room a few hours later here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on 08-August-2016.
