From the Barley Station Brew Pub (Shuswap Lake Brewing Company) located in Salmon Arm in the Shuswap region of BC comes their “Bushwacker Brown Ale”. The beer pours a deep brown with a tan head. The aroma consists of earth and roasty malts, ash, coffee, chocolate and some sweetness. The flavour is of earth, toffee, chocolate, caramel, ash, coffee and sweetness. The alcohol content comes in at 4.7% with an IBU of 24. This is not the most complex beer but it is still quite enjoyable and well worth a grab when heading through Salmon Arm.
Commercial Description: This brown ale is styled after the great southern English brown ales. It has a wonderfully complex malt character from the use of 8 different specialty malts from England, Belgium and Canada. A chocolatey flavor with nutty undertones. Excellent with full- flavored foods.
