From Nickel Brook Brewing;

“We’re celebrating the very best of local harvest season with our ‘Ontario Pale Ale’ made with 100% Ontario grown ingredients! This ‘Wet Hopped’ pale ale is made solely with Ontario’s only native hop variety, freshly picked Bertwell® hops. The malt is also entirely Ontario grown, primarily using Ontario Select® malt from Canada Malting. Please drink as fresh as possible to enjoy maximum hop aroma and flavour! Do not age! Yours to discover!”

Appearance | Golden orange with white foamy head.

Smell | Piney, citrus notes (tangerines and oranges), and grassy notes.

Taste | Piney, citrus (tangerines and oranges), hops, and mild bitterness.

Aftertaste | Lingering notes of citrus and hops.

Overall |  Nickel Brook, they can’t really go wrong with making such a refreshing beer.   Nickel Brook brewed this beer with Ontario-grown hops and malts as stated in the description for this beer.    Ryan Morrow (The Brewmaster) has done it again with another hit from Nickel Brook!   It’s a light-medium ale that is refreshingly crisp and mild bitterness with aromas of goodness (pine resin, hops, tangerines and oranges).

This is a seasonal ale available in the Autumn.
