$18 a 6 pack
This appeared on the shelf next to my normal beer of choice, the ever enjoyable James Squire Amber . So naturally I took one for the team (I was thirsty, it barely touched the sides). The packaging looks great – the quasi handwritten label is very much in the vein of the Saint Clair Pioneer Block wines which I love.
Apparently there will only be 2500 cases of this produces, so get in quick if you want to try it.
A hoppy, golden Summer Ale, this had pronounced hop driven aromatics and a dry, hop driven palate. To tell you the truth, the hops where the most remarkable feature, after that it sort of fell away to a simple bitter finish. It’s quite drinkable, but also short and unremarkable. Back to good ole Amber I went.
