I agree, the fact that we can't get Rainforest Ale is tragic. It was one of the cleanest Ales that was popularized that I've ever head. It was served on tap at a local pub here in Abby. That's sort of typical where one finds something you like and then they get rid of it. I think this particular brew led the way for other craft brews to follow. Exceptionally balanced, clean, crisp in taste, no bad aftertase, not a lot of sweetness with smooth malitness that beckoned you to have more. I hold my hat over my heart when I think about this beer. RIP Rainforest Ale

As a flight attendant (who does like his beer) I have been fortunate enough to have tried beers from all over the world. I moved from Vancouver to Sydney over 30 years ago and always enjoyed a trip back to visit family, friends and pubs (not always in that order...in fact, the family didn't always know I was in town!). About 6 years ago I flew between Sydney, Hawaii and Vancouver on a weekly basis. Shaftebury was making Rainforest then and i picked up a case whenever i could. i now read it's no more...VERY sad! But I still rate it RIGHT up there!
