COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its been said that Canada is the only country in the world that knows how to live without an identity. This beer doesnt 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 weve really made a mess of things. What have we done? Sorry.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2011 [2751-20100207] Tap. Sweet sugary pancakes aroma. Clear, medium orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy white head and thick lacing. Bitter sugary hops flavour has a long bitter evergreen and grass hops finish. Medium-full body is very bitter. Wow, great body, great fresh bitter. Changes a bit as it warms: more wheatie sugars come out. Something clicked for me with this one. (7/4/9/4/15) 3.9

[3820B-20110710] Cask. Fresh orange hops aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a quick bubbly off-white head. Lovely bitter hoppy orange notes in the flavour with a long aftertaste. Medium body. Drinkable, sessionable, delicious! (8/3/8/4/15) 3.8

solidfunk (8584) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Smells like floral hops with some grapefruit, even grape. Colour is blond hazy, good lacing. Good head retention. Taste has more hops and fruitiness. Faint but not unpleasant sourness. This beer is wonderful - a great, original pale ale, so much more than the standard hops and malt standard. Among the better APAs Ive tasted. On cask at Castros Lounge.

Can at home. Trade from TheJester. Pours almost clear golden with a medium white head. The aroma is passion fruit, citrus, light peach and caramel. The flavour is citrussy with notes of fresh fruit, caramel and some resin. Bitter fruity finish. Lovely brew.

lusikka (7793) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2014
473 ml can. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a beautiful lacy white head. Aroma of citrus, some harsh grainy notes and mango. Flavour of harsh grainy malts, pine, citrusy bitterness, dried fruits and grass. Medium bodied, harsh mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Not as fresh as I hoped for, but still good.

JaBier (7656) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Can shared by a friend. Pours a clear gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma of earthy, oniony and piney hops with some malt. Malty flavor with a bitter earthy hop finish. Seems like they did fine with aroma and bittering hops, but didnt do much on the flavor hop.
