Nickel Brook Naughty Neighbour

Postby TheBeeraholic » Mon Apr 30, 2012 11:23 am

Tweet from the brewery that this has been flying off the shelves. Just waiting for the label to be made before it gets to the LCBO.

But my questions is has anyone picked this up from the brewery? Only a few ratings on RB

http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/nickel-bro ... le/170949/

Interested to know if any BT's have had it yet?

American Pale Ale at 4.9% and 40 IBU's. Lighter than Crazy Canuck, might be a good session beer for this coming summer.

I just wished I had known before hand, I drove right by there this weekend bringing a friend home from St. Catherines. Instead went a bit out of the way to Camerons for the RPA. Would have been nice to tackle both in the one day.

Sounds nice and exactly what I need right now - the big IPAs are great, but I'm getting a little pickled from all the 6+ % beers right now...

Picked up six from the brewery. Excellent APA, nice unfiltered look. Has more body to it than canuck. This is going to be a great summer sessionable brew.

Picked a six pack up yesterday. Like the last comment NN has a great body and huge flavour profile. Nice to have a lower abv hop forward beer besides Canuck to session. Didn't take long to get through the first bottle during the hockey game last night.

i went by the brewery on Drury on Tuesday and the only "new" beers they apparently had were Headstock and the RIS. Maybe she wasn't aware of this one? She did mention in passing a "headstock light" perhaps they've renamed this one as NN?

anyone know?

You had to ask for it. They have it in the back. I spoke with one of the brewers as no one was in tr actual store at the time. It will be labeled next week. I also bought a mixed six with te Headstock Light included in that. Just a light lager. Nothing like te IPA don't waste your money.

Enjoying a sixer of this. Good beer. Nice and sessionable. A little bit of a one trick poney as far as hopping goes. All orange zest, and not much else. Decent beer though. Much more drinkable than crazy cannuck in my opinion.

On tap @kickoff.
Matt' s nailed it above
Best nickelbrook ever IMO.
At <5% ABV this is a giant killer if I can get my hands on it.
Well done nickel brook!!!

Do it , you won't regret it.
The kids here at the Kickoff are pouring it down by the $16 pitcher full! I'm not sure they know how good it actually is. The spearhead tap is very very quiet.

Was at Caplanksky's last night and they added a fifth tap - spearhead :roll:

I wouldn't mind the beer so much if it wasn't everwhere! Anyway he said it was going to be a rotating "feature" tap so I told him about RPA and how that might go with smoked meat.
