Beer Advent Calendar 2013
From Lake of Bays Brewing Company out of Baysville, Ontario comes their “Crosswind Pale Ale”. The beer pours a golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of apple juice with some mild malts. The flavour is of apple juice, citrus, grainy malts and some minor hops. The alcohol content is 5%. This is a pretty good beer and very refreshing although I was surprise how much like a hopped apple juice it tasted like.
Commercial Description: Pours with a brilliant golden colour and a nice white foam in which the bubbles are generous. The aromatics are primarily citrus and range between lemon and grapefruit. There are also hints of caramel, toasted grains and a touch of fresh apple. The flavours include toasted bread and a slight note of toffee and stewed apple. The mouth feel is quite dry and the finish is quick with some mild, lingering bitterness.
