Looks as beautiful in your glass as a lovely summer day at Sunnyside Beach. Gaze into the sun to get an idea of the colour of this unfiltered (brilliant gold, hazy) tasty treat, which is protected with a snowy head, reminiscent of white caps rolling on Lake Ontario.
The citrus aromas leap from the glass with each gentle swirl. Lemon is the most prominent followed by pineapple and a touch of grapefruit. It’s so aromatic that you’ll want to forgo the sunscreen and apply generously to your person. Light body, juicy and refreshing, the same aromas make their way onto the palate, which are elevated due to the soft carbonation and mouthfeel.
A dry finish with lingering pineapple notes, Sunnyside has all the flavours of a big GLB IPA packaged into a remarkably drinkable session ale. Terrific for the backyard, the beach, with friends, and in the shower before a big night out.
Food Pairing Recommendations
Cotton candy from the Sunnyside pavilion. Turbo rockets and soft serve ice cream from a dickie dee cart on the boardwalk. Or go big and pair with some Lake Ontario fish taco’s. If you’re really serious, lobster rolls.
