Brewery: Cameron’s Brewing (Oakville, Ontario)

Type: Lager

ABV: 5%

Appearance / Aroma: Bright gold typical lager colour.  Nice head from a vigarous pour- noticeable carbonation and bubbles in the glass.

Taste / Feel: I took a nice big gulp, as this is my post 25km bike ride thirst quench and at first I wanted to say that’s is one of the most easy drinking and delicious beers (thirst does that), but a couple layers develop post-swallow which I’m not too keen on.  It’s hard to explain. It’s like a there is a certain staleness from some lingering yeast and fermentation or some thing.  This might be a bias based on a head which settled into a clumpy fragmented splotchy mess, like old coffee cream settling on some un-drunk coffee.  Ok- that sounds worse than it is, it’s not that bad.  But it’s … Not that good.  If I was given a choice between this and a Sleeman at a BBQ this is the clear choice.  But in a world full of lagers (which lets be honest- is the easiest beer to do well)…. I don’t think there’s a lot to write home about here.  So I should stop…
