Pale gold colour with mild citrus and light malty aromas carrying through on the palate, with refreshingly light creamy malt and moderate bitter hoppiness.
Gold/straw-coloured, this is a Session beer, moderate in alcohol and refreshingly light but with plenty of flavour. You will find citrus and spicy notes and a smooth wheat finish accented by a touch of hoppy bitterness.
Pale, hazy yellow, little foam. Fresh hops and coriander along with citrus notes of lemon and lime. Very light and thirst-quenching, its 3.8% ABV contributes to its gulping character. Perfect on a warm day.
The name refers to the German town famous for its sour beer. Bright pale yellow. Fresh nose of citrus and herbs with delicate notes of hops. Very light on the palate, not so sour, extra refreshing and low in bitterness. Easy drinking.
Pale yellow, slightly hazy. Very fruity nose of lime, juniper and hops (lime and juniper berries were added to the brew). Quite acidic (think lemonade), light taste; extremely refreshing with noticeable bitterness in the finish.
This New England–style IPA crafted by Barrie’s eclectic Flying Monkeys took home gold at the Ontario Brewing Awards this year. Pouring a hazy peach hue with a lasting mousse-like head, aromas of pine, pineapple and pink grapefruit flesh burst out to the nose and carry through to the sip that balances baguette-like sweetness with plenty of judicious citrusy hops before cresting to a long, bitter ending of grapefruit pith.
