BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Great Lakes Brewery
Ontario, Canada
greatlakesbeer.com

Style: American Pale Ale (APA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our version of a west coast pale ale pushes the boundaries much like the Crazy Canucks of the past. We've brewed it for those who enjoy adventure and a departure from the ordinary. The result is a wildly hoppy aroma with a lingering bitterness complemented by a soft breadly malt flavour.

Honey coloured nice white golden head. Very hoppy aroma, nice carbonation very smooth. Notes of citrus and hops on the end- easy drinking beer. Checked the can a couple of times surprised it didn't say IPA

Enjoyable, easy drinking brew. Can see myself enjoying a couple on the deck of our cabin, in the summer, after a day of fishing.
Cloudy, decent hops, pleasing after taste.
Will purchase again.

CAN
Webby taupe over inexplicably cloudy lemon-tan body. 3.5
Lemon zest nose with some cakey grain undertones and maybe a hint of acetone. 3.75
Snap wheat crackers and some tart musty Citra-esque hops with some herbal hints. 3.75
Lemon barley water end and decent IBU linger.
Some cling, verging on medium, oily. 3.75

-- Fairly one dimensional and a tad watery. But surprisingly good dankness to the hop citrus. I could drink this of a summer day. 4

Has the taste experience I'm looking for in a pale ale. From the first taste when cold to the last taste when at room temp, it delivers a beautiful mix of bitter flavours. Love its complexity and how it lingers.
