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.

On tap at Bar Hop. Great C-hop aroma, loads of citrus, but there is still a solid bready maltiness. Good carb, solod mouthfeel. Great citrusy finish. Just an all around great session pale ale, not too hoppy, but you get loads of great hop flavor, could drink it all night!

Full mango, tropical fruit, citrus, wonderful. Cloudy yellow color, minimal sized white head. Fruit, biscuit, hopped up. Medium body, soft carbonation.

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 (1857) - Rīga, LATVIA - AUG 10, 2017
Very nice citrus kick, some pine, light floral. Light sweet with moderate to light bitterness. Superb balance, awesome refreshing

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 (238) - 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.

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.

VamboladeTolly (2120) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2017
Can @ alus celle, Riga. Pours slightly orange with small sticky white head. Aroma: feels a bit dead, hay, dill, caramel. Tropical fruits. Taste: dry, hay, bitter, citrus. Medium body. Like to have fresh one. Bitter finish.

Wow, really not a fan of this Pale Ale. Seems to have a stink about it, and is unpleasant on the palate. Naughty Neighbour? More like Naughty taste.
