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.

65 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Frothy head, hazy pale golden colour. Promising aroma of spiced apricot. Rather carbonated, a nice floral spruce flavor comes through. Sharp on the finish, quite nice.

Really strong taste of caramel on this one. Tastes like a good pale ale but has a bitter bite at the end.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2012 Crispy clean taste, pours a pale yellow, very hoppy smell and a hoppy taste, pretty citrusy, you can really taste the cascade come through and it has a good finish. Good offering Rerate: cask version the canculkhead or some like that was awesome, the flavour was really smooth and lots of hoppiness, really nice

Tranquillity (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2015
Hazy orange body, rhick white foamy head. The aroma is very full, with grapefruit and orange, some flowers. Excellent palate, medium heavy. The taste is fruity as well, with a slow to start but long to mature and finish aftertaste that has hops and even some nuts. Wow!

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2015 500mL can from LCBO. Slightly hazy yellow with a long-lasting creamy head. Mild aroma of hops, which is slightly metallic. Taste is decent, some piny and fruity hops and bread, with a mildly bitter, watery, and metallic finish. Feels a little thin, possibly because 5.2% ABV is a little low for the style. A fine session ale, or a good stepping stone for those not yet acquainted with the greatness of hoppy ales. Sampled at the brewery, where it tasted slightly better, and smelt significantly better. Update: now called "canuck pale ale", and seems better.

Lagerboy (2132) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2011
650 ml bomber. clear pale gold, medium white head. A Crazy Canuck American Pale winter seasonal, eh? Someones confused. Tastes like an IPA to me... this ones all hop. Lovely floral, spruce, and citrusy hoppy aroma, medium bitter taste with some malt hidden behind. Bitter finish.
