  • Style: (cucumber) Flavoured Ale
  • Taste: Crisp sweet barley cucumber malt
  • Where I got it : BC Liquor Stores
  • How much: $12.50 – 6x355ml., May 2015
  • Do I love this enough to drink it again: possibly, but doubtful
  • Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: easy drinking

Visual: 6x355ml pack. Pours golden orange amber without much head, a very thin layer of micro bubbles, just a few slow micro streams.

Nose: sweet blonde ale malts, a touch of elderflower perfume. (lvl-3)-pungency

Attack: crisp bite

Mid-palate: (lvl-5)-sweetness, (MAIN) clean cucumber, sweet barley malt,

Finish: soft non-lingering bitter hops, barley malt exhale, somewhat thin finish.

Summary: It won’t blow your socks off, but it certainly has a unique profile that works. Goes well with cucumbers as you’d expect.
