Cruiser All Day Pale AleCruiser All Day Pale Ale
Notes: "Cruiser All Day Pale Ale is a smooth, 4.9% Golden Pale Ale that has a refined drinkability and rich tropical flavours. We use a bounty of Canadian Pale Malts and slowly add Citra and Sorachi Ace hops, giving the beer a crisp, refreshing taste with a big citrus punch. Enjoy Fresh & Keep on Cruisin’.

Pours a pale golden colour, finger of head, some retention and no real lacing. Nose is loaded with citrus and pine hops, hints of a nutty malt backbone. Much like the nose, tart citrus hops, earthy pine and a bitter cedar hop finish. Medium bodied, smooth and a touch of dryness. A solid earthy hopped pale ale. Session ale? I suppose, but more like a solid American pale ale, since I would consider a session ale something closer to 4%. Definitely on my go-to list now though.

12oz Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for $2 or so

Appearance - Clear gold colour with a large size fizzy white coloured head. There is a fair amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Breads/grains, hops, grapefruit, apricots

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste breads/grains mixed with a good dose of hops. There is also some grapefruits and some apricots.

Overall - Seems a lot like the Nicklebrook Naughty Neighbour or the Muskoka detour.. maybe with a touch more dry hop flavour. A good beer that I'll pickup again.

I brought a can of this back from a recent trip to Toronto. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The scent had nice aroma of citrus peel. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall...might be the best beer I've tried from canada.

Citrusy and hoppy, but not an overkill; its still a rather balanced APA with great head retention and a lovely opaque golden yellow colour. It's not going to rewrite the book, but its a rather enjoyable and tasty beer I'd be glad to order at any pub
