I had an evening dinner earlier this month at Canoe Brewpub in Victoria. We shared a flight of their craft and discussed it. If you don’t know a flight of beer is a taster of all their products.
The one beer that stood out to me was their Beaver Brown Ale. I picked up a bottle of it and brought it to the leapbeer tasting room.
I poured this into my trusty pint glass and here’s my thoughts. It pours to a deep brown colour with a cream coloured foam on top. This beer smells fantastic. It smells of malt with a hint of coffee as well. When you taste it the coffee meets some chocolate flavour and this brown ale. It washes in your mouth and fills it with the flavour. It isn’t heavy, but it is rich. It is a bold and easily sessionable brown ale. I really enjoyed it.
Leapbeer #170 is Beaver Brown Ale by Canoe Brewpub in Victoria
This beer was available on tap at the pub, but also in the 650ml bomber. It has a nice sessionable 5.3%.
One other thing about Canoe, our dinner was great. 2 of the diners had the braised beef entré and it was fantastic. They even offer this beer in a beer float. It made for a great night. They also just released a gluten free menu. My hat is off to Canoe for their fine craftsmanship, both in the beer and in their restaurant. Check them out if you get the chance.
Thanks for reading.
