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.

Draft to pint glass at Grand Electric Grapefruit, pine and hops. Cloudy amber with a thin white head, long lasting head. Grapefruit and hops...well balanced malt. Interesting, but not great.

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.

Can: Pour was medium gold with a thick white head. aroma was tropical fruit, some citrus as well, biscuits and honey. flavour was more of the same, bready malt, light caramel, tropical fruit, grapefruity citrus presence. Only a light bitterness to the finish for me though.

Fresh bottle sample- Medium gold pour, with a moderate frothy cap. Aromas of buttered toast, floral hops, white bread, perfume. Strange flavour profile. Has fresh floral hops and a marked lemony bitterness, with a buttery flavour that leads to sweet bready malts. Seems like some sort of hybrid or cross style. It is ok, but what is going on with the butter? I had enough on my toast this morning, thanks. I’ll give it a whirl again, but I’d like to see the butter go away.

Kauge (1958) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 14, 2015
Tap at Bar Hop’s new place on St Peter. Blue Jays vs Rangers, Game 4... not much notes therefore. Was fruity, moderately bitter. Nicely balanced. Quite enjoyable, soft and crispish, but not as nice as Amsterdam’s Cruiser I had after this.

Cannette 473 ml. 5.2%. Couleur ambrée, mousse blanche-beige . Arôme de houblon frais et malt. J’adore les west coast Pale Ale. En bouche du houblon frais, de l’amertume, du malt. Excellente Pale Ale. Wow.

lesifflebiere (1904) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2013
Orangée, un peu voilée, elle garde un certain montant de mousse blanche pendant plusieurs minutes. À l’odeur, ce sont les fruits tropicaux (ananas, mangues) qui prennent toute la place. Plutôt douce en bouche jusqu’à atteindre la finale, plus musclée et plus amère. Pourtant, malgré ces caractéristiques et une présence de sucres qui l’arrondit, elle manque un petit peu de puissance. Elle reste cependant très agréable, et bien fidèle à un style qui n’a plus rien à cacher.
