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.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, - JAN 29, 2013
Pours a clear sparkling dark yellow with a whole lots of foamy white head and some visible carbonation. Smell is definite hops, lots of citrus, and a bit of a fruitier variety mixed with a bit of sweet toffee maltiness. Palate is medium bodied with a bit under average carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet at first then really quite bitter, and it stays bitter for quite a while. A competent APA.

Otra cerveza lupulada típica canadiense, con algo menos de amargor y un buen aroma, pero muy típica.

Benzai (16569) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2017
Can @ home. Hazy yellow-golden color, medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, hops, quite resinous and piney, piney bitterness, bitter. Decent to medium body and carbonation. Nice!

Clean, crisp and hoppy but not overpowering. Don't hate me but it works as an adjuster/mixer of lighter beers like Rolling Rock. Accidentally poured some RR in my cup at a tailgating before a concert before I finished my NN and was pleasantly surprised.

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 (1823) - 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.

Trolleo (1718) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 18, 2017
Full mango, tropical fruit, citrus, wonderful. Cloudy yellow color, minimal sized white head. Fruit, biscuit, hopped up. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Martin243 (1214) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2017
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.

Vells (1894) - Rīga, LATVIA - AUG 10, 2017
Very nice citrus kick, some pine, light floral. Light sweet with moderate to light bitterness. Superb balance, awesome refreshing

Melnis (527) - LATVIA - AUG 10, 2017
For APA very smooth balanced and interesting flavor combination. Some pineapple, some pine wood. Good levels of sweet, bitter and sour.
