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.

Crockett (1113) - 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 (1113) - 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.

hellonearth (143) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2017
Dun beau jaune surmont dun infime col crmeux. Nez de pamplemousse, de pin. Une belle fracheur en bouche. On est dans le conifre, dans lagrume confite... Lamertume domine, mais rien dagressif. Une pale ale? On pourrait facilement me la faire passer pour une vraie IPA. Trs bien!

Tricker (406) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 24, 2016
Bire blonde de 5.2 % dalcool. Elle possde un beau petit col mousseux et laiteux au versement. Elle possde un odorat amer de pamplemousse. Son got est prenant, mlange de fruits de la passion et de pamplemousse. Elle garde son amertume en finale et celle-ci reste en bouche. Cependant, son aspect fruit la rend trs agrable. Vraiment trs bonne !

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.
