Brewery: Granville Island Brewing Company (Vancouver)
Type: Pale Ale
It poured a nice frothy head which left no tracings. No carbonation, medium bodied. Has a nice red ale kind of colour. Great looking beer. It smells like a vanilla caramel earthy beer. This is 200% a malt beer. I doubt there’s even a hop in there. The taste confirms the caramel, and may I add a nuttyness?…. I get a bit of peanut in there. It’s not bad- it drinks like a brown ale. Which are not what I would call my favorite beers to date . But it’s, fine. I’m stumped as to how this beer won a Gold Medal at the 2011 World Beer Championships.
