  1. It is good to see a lower alcohol ale, with taste, now for retail sale in Ontario. Lots of nice micro brewery beers but many are in the higher alcohol range. This reminds me of a session ale in the UK. Grand River Brewing has their Mill Race (3.5%) and Hannenberg Pils (4.5%) beer which are both very drinkable. Yes, you can produce a nice beer in a lower alcohol range and I hope that other micro breweries will produce them. Cheers.
