After growing my beer knowledge, excitement, and snobbery before I left for Victoria I was super excited to see what good craft brews I could find there that we don’t have here in Edmonton. I knew I had some good stuff last year.
So I ventured into the local liquor store in Cadboro Bay and I picked up something. I don’t even remember what it was now, but after splitting it between 2 nights, I was just not in the mood for beer. I was tired and just didn’t feel like taking the time. So I didn’t bother getting any more.
It pours a nice light golden brown, with a full almost white head, filling my pint glass.
On the nose I get a big whiff of citrus and honey. A little cardamom in there maybe?
The taste carries that sweet honey flavour, laced with lemon and citrus notes. It finishes really smooth, with just enough hops to make it interesting.
It has a medium-bodied mouthfeel. It seems like a good beer for most occasions. I can see it going well with lemon chicken, maybe a pork burger, or on its own on the patio on a sunny afternoon.
As I drink it, I’m getting something else… but I just can’t tell quite what. But it’s good. While not the best beer I’ve ever had, I can see it being somewhat of a staple. An easy go-to beer.
