COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

robinvboyer (4427) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, - AUG 19, 2012
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!

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.

JamesChamp (20) - Canada, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2017
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"!
