Sometimes our neighbours are just too enticing to resist! In this case, our newest ward-winning product pays homage to our naughty neighbours to the south, as our American Pale Ale has something for everyone! For hop lovers, the huge aroma of citrus and pine greet the nose and the hops continue on the palate as hoppy flavour persists, leaving a remarkably easy drinking crisp, dry finish. We pack all this hop aroma and flavour in a brew that is only 4.9% on purpose, which leaves a hugely sessionable beer that is perfectly refreshing on hot summer days! No additives. No preservatives. Naturally carbonated for a smooth, crisp finish.

Can. Bursting with grapefruit hoppy aroma and flavor. Quite amazing this only has 4.9% ABV. Very astrigent hoppiness. Lingering bitter finish. Bought at LCBO Toronto. I wish they had this in the states.

Franckg (1917) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2017
Canette datée du 25/07/2017, bue après 3 semaines. Robe dorée légèrement trouble avec un mince col de mousse blanc. Arômes de jeunes agrumes, pêche blanche, malt léger, houblons frais, pamplemousse. En bouche, pamplemousse et autres agrumes plus amers qu’au nez, malt frais et léger, mangue, amertume un peu résineuse et agréable. Texture légère et juteuse, corps mince. Bonne bière de soif.

Cold can served in a pint glass, Golden hazy, white head. Citrus and resin aroma, Similar flavours, juicy mouth feel nice smack on the finish. Eminently sessionable, or "crushable" as I’ve learned to say.

Marduk (8622) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2017
500ml can (Alus Celle, Riga). Slightly hazy golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Citrus, fruity, hops and sweetish in aroma. Citrus, metallic, caramel and fruity in taste. Metallic, caramel and hops in aftertaste. Harsh bitterness. Average brew.

BrewWhatIWant (323) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2017
Pours a rather hazy gold with a big, quickly receding head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Taste is moderately bitter with just a hint of sweet. There are notes of grapefruit rind leading into pine resin, followed by citronella or as someone else described it bug spray. Full bodied, low-medium carbonation. It has a harsh bitterness that catches on the back of the tongue, then eventually diminiahes to reveal the malt, like a mouse beneath an elephant. Did I enjoy this? I did not.

FatPhil (17334) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2017
500ml can (Alus Celle, Riga) (5:3:6:3:11=2.8)
Hazy to cloudy straw, brief head. Blandish aroma, messy hops. Soapy hoppy taste, zesty, but harsh. Pleasant metallic bitter bite in the finish. Harsh pale ale, but that’s due to the unbalanced IPA hopping rather than APA yeast. I’d have called this an IPA, not an APA; it’s quite west coast in hop profile.
