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.

My experience with this beer was very disappointing. The aroma that first hit me was not apealing to me. First taste had the hint of bitterness that I enjoy but then I was hit with the flavour of bad grapefruit. Totaly turned me off. Could not finish my glass. Only the second beer ever that I could not finish

March 2017 can picked up at LCBO in Ottawa so relatively fresh. Pours a clear golden with a medium white head leaves pretty nice lacing. Nose is of hops for sure but not in the flamboyant manner most modern APAs showcase them. Fruity but not juicy and far from grassy. Citrusy and piny. Taste is not quite dry but far from sweet with some cereals and more of the fruity hops. Light to medium bitterness. Body is light to medium, carbonation moderately high. Overall a more than fair pale ale that is just "oldschool" now but not overly so (no big caramel, whew!).

Pours hazy gold with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit and pine. Flavours the same as aroma with a good balance of sweet and bitter hops. Nice clean enjoyable beer.

GLBs Canuck pale ale available year round at many LCBOs in tall cans 473ml for about $2.80. also available at the brewery on Torontos west borough Etobicoke. Good pale ale, nice flavours. Enjoy this beer when having some pre drinks with friends.

Grapefruit and a little pine meld with some bready malts. Fruity and hoppy and damn tasty. Im surprised I have never rated this before.

BrewWhatIWant (147) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2017 Pours hazy light amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is grapefruit and light malt. Taste is slightly bitter with notes of grapefruit rind, pine and grains. In the finish theres some citrus and onion. Light body and medium-high carbonation. Although its called Canuck pale ale, its very much a west coast apa. Its not really my thing.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2017
Pours honey gold, mild haze. Big bubbly white head. A bit of sudsy lace. Nose of cedar, pine needles, grapefruit. Flavour carries a lot of the same, with notes of burnt grass hops, better than average citrus, with traces of peach and bubblegum. Quite clean, with minimal graininess. Alcohol is well hidden. Lots of peppery carbonation. Head retention could be better. Carries more bread than expected through the muted finish. Decent beer.

Tessic (1132) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2017
This pale poured a cloudy, orange with a big, bold, white head. Minimal lacing. Scents include grassy hops, malts and flowers. First swig was watery but quite flavourful. Flavours of grass and dough most prominent. Finish I lightly bitter with malty notes lingering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Go to Pale Ale. Well balanced, hop intense ale with the right amount of carbonation.

caitlin_m (14) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2017
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.
