Takeoff! Crosswind is the beer that launched Lake of Bays onto the scene. Crisp, clean and golden-coloured, this pale ale offers a noticeable citrus hop character. A hit with beer drinkers of all stripes. Pours with a brilliant golden colour and a nice white foam in which the bubbles are generous. The aromatics are primarily citrus and range between lemon and grapefruit. There are also hints of caramel, toasted grains and a touch of fresh apple. The flavours include toasted bread and a slight note of toffee and stewed apple. The mouth feel is quite dry and the finish is quick with some mild, lingering bitterness.
