Tranquillity (2233) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2015
Can. Clear golden, medium white head. The aroma is slightly metallic, hoppy but weak. The taste is lame but quite refreshing. It doesnt give any interstitial flavors.

Gold colour. Pale malts, caramel, orange & a bit of citrus. Moderately bitter. Drinkable but not my favourite.

This beer really missed the mark. I have no doubt that they used fine ingredients, but it just wasnt for me. Bland. MB

ENG: 473ml can from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg. Poured into the tulip, gives little opalescent, golden color, with small tan head but a bit of lacing. Delicate citrusy hoppy aromas. A bit hoppy taste, mixed with malty and caramel notes. A bit soury too. Soury-bitter aftertaste, and theres some alcohol presence coming up too. Medium carbonation and light body. Overall quite light beer, without any "fireworks", but very drinkable, refreshing APA

PL: Puszka 473ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg. Przelana do kieliszka, daje lekko opalizującą, złocistą barwę, niewielką pianę ale i nieco lejsingu. Delikatne cytrusowo-chmielowe aromaty. W smaku delikatnie chmielowe, zmieszane ze słodami i karmelem. Nieco kwaśne. W posmaku kwaśna goryczka i gdzieś tam też pojawia się alkohol. Średnie nasycenie i lekkie ciało. Podsumowując dość lekkie piwo bez żadnych "fajerwerkw", ale bardzo pijalne i orzeźwiające APA.

Crockett (1116) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
Pours a fairly standard gold with a medium sized soapy short lived head. Nose of grain, clipped grass, apple skins, and touches of hop resin. Very slight creamed corn.Lemon drops, cereal, pine, orange pith. Crisp carbonation. Finish is a bit metallic This is a very simple, fairly clean and non-offensive example. The price point is decent. Its in my every day drinking beer category. To be honest, Im happy its around. Its fine for what it is. Theyre doing some decent stuff over at Lake of Bays, however this is outside what Id call an American Pale.

471ml can into an English pint. Pours a clear golden with sparse white head leaving a little ring. Nose a bit floral, touch of caramel. Touch sweet flavour-wise, a bit of honey. A bit of creaminess on the palate, though relatively light; dryish,slightly bitter finish. May revisit as a session beer when its a bit milder.

473 ml can. Pours a clear golden with a short lived white head. Aroma is citrus, lemon. Flavor is lemon, toasty, light roast, fresh cereal, fruit. Finish is lots of fruit, some grapefruit. Rather soft. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation.

Can from the LCBO. Hazy light orange amber pour with a one finger white head that leave a bit of tight lace. Nose is caramel and honey with faint floral hops. Taste follows the nose with a medium sweet start that follows through to the end with on the slightest sign of bitterness. Medium slick mouth with soft carbonation.
