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.

Very hazy orange pour. Lots of sediment. Havent seen sediment like that since our trip to Montreal. Foamy white head. Very strong Pale Ale hops grapefruit scent. Yep its a pale ale alright. Im very surprised as I havent havent had much Nickelbrook that Ive actually found to be any good. This must be the exception that proves the rule. Now anyone who has been following my rates knows, I am not a pale ale fan. I dont like that tart hoppy grapefruit like bite. This is no exception but it fades very quick with pretty much no aftertaste. So yeah Nickelbrook makes a rather good beer. Who knew.

In short: nice APA.
Did i enjoy it: yes
Pours little hazy dark gold with nice white head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Citrusy, topical fruit nose, peachy, mango. Medium body, average to high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is quite fruity, follows the nose, moderate bitterness, quite hoppy, dry aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

Draft at Rattle n Hum West. Pours a light golden body with soft haze, frothy head and thick white lacing. Nose is orange fruits, pine and malt. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with bitter pine, spice and sweet astringent malt. Not sure if this was at its peak quality.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2017 Another good beer from Nickel Brook. Part of there year round line up, also available at most LCBOs year round (at least in the Greater Toronto area) tall can 473ml for $2.80. Also quite available at many bars in Toronto. A great APA with lots of hop flavours, at 4.9% not to bitter but very enjoyable. Easy to crush a few of these, and due to easy access its a great "go to beer"!
