From Silver Valley Brewing out of Maple Ridge comes their “The Lion ESB”. The beer pours a fairly deep copper colour with a light tan head. The aroma consists of fruity notes, caramel malt and floral hops. The flavour is of caramel, grain, fruity notes, some citrus rind and some mild hops bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5.25% with an IBU of 40. I could definitely consume quite a few of these in the future.
Commercial Description: This traditional British ale balances its smooth caramel backbone with an earthy hoppy bite and fruity aromatics. Pairs well with roasted meats, english cheeses, and fish and chips.
