Purchased at the LCBO for $2.50 for a 473ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 1" high white head that is gone in seconds. Medium gold colour and filtered clear.

S- Lots of dry hopping here.

T- A bit light on the hops but then again it's under 5% so there needs to be a bit toned down from the big bodied IPA's. Slightly metallic aftertaste but not that bad.

M- Dry and very light. Super light to say the least

O- Pretty good easy drinking brew. Not a seeker outer but still nice. Would go well on a hot summer's day but not too many.

Food Pairing

This pretty good brew went well with...... Snacks on the picnic table while BBQ'ing

Enjoy

Can: Poured a light golden color ale with a large pure white foamy head with great retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of fresh floral hops notes of citrus with light cereal notes. Taste is also dominated by fresh citrus hops notes with some cereal notes and a light finale. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Very enjoyable beer with nice hops presence though finale was a bit short.

Look: Dark brass, bruised peach with but an infant's whorl of foam.

Aroma: To paraphrase the White Rhino, an ambrosiac fruit cup! Grapefruit of a ripe, old age tussles with pineapple in full festive spirits. Dark sugar malts in the background embrace the playful cornucopia.

Taste: Grainy malts gird and tame a grapefruit rind hop sphere whose density is further held by resin and pine flavours. This is saplings dreaming of undisturbed photosynthesis. The slight tinge of metal is only the myth of lumberjack saws.

Feel: Faint carbonation staccato fingers tickle the back of the throat.

Overall: An infant god's Eden. Not entirely complex in its delectable fruit creation, especially with the restriction of pineapple to spirit, yet never degrading into a savage hop tear across the palate.

In short, rumbles of prelapsarian pleasure pervade this ISA.
