Leapbeer Review #120 Bob’s Your Dunkel by Mt Begbie Brewery

Before I begin the review I want to mourn the loss of one of my Innis & Gunn tulip glasses. A good friend “accidentally” knocked it off the table and shattered it. It will be missed *sob*.

Time to drown my sorrows in beer, just kidding, but it is time to enjoy a beer.

Again I reach to a brew bought by my lead acquisitionist, Bob’s Your Dunkel (weizen) by Mt Begbie Brewery. This beer pours to a lovely cloudy milk chocolate colour. It smells of malt, hazelnuts and chocolate.

It tastes really nice. While the beginning of the taste is mostly rich malt, it gets interrupted with the bitter hop notes. There’s even a hint of orange and licorice in the bitter finish. It lingers for a bit, but it is lightly carbonated making it a good quaffer of a beer. Its surprising because it’s a heavyweight at 8.0%ABV.

Leapbeer Review #90 Red Racer IPA

So this was the second new beer I tried on my little trip to Victoria last weekend. I didn’t get my usual amount of time to do a review, but from my notes here’s what I was able to suss out.

I’ve been told by more than a few people that this is THE IPA for a benchmark. To which I usually come back with “But its in a can”. Can be damned this is a tasty brew. I’d have to try it back to back with some of my personal fave IPA right now to see if it can unseat it for the top spot. Regardless of that it is very very good.

As you can see it pours to a nice cloudy amber with a small head on top. It does have a wonderful lacing in the can as it drinks and it’s velvety going down. You get a nice burst of citric hops on the nose. At 6.5% ABV this is a great session beer.

Its very tasty so if you’re a hop head seek it out. I don’t know why Campbell River liquor stores don’t order this one in. If they did I’d have done the review earlier. I got mine at a restaurant in Vic when I was down there, but it should be readily available in BC. Big ups to everyone who suggested this beer, its fantastic.
