100th Meridian Organic Amber Lager – Mill Street Brewery

From Toronto Ontario’s Mill Street Brewery comes their “100th Meridian Organic Amber Lager”.  The beer pours a golden amber colour with a lightly off white head.  The aroma consists of grainy malts, mild citrus and some grassy hops.  The flavour is of citrus, fruits, grainy malts, caramel and very mild hops.  The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 24.  For an amber lager this beer has a pretty good amount of things going on.  The flavour is big enough I could see myself grabbing anouther bottle.

Commercial Description:  Our organic barley comes from the Great Plains of Canada and I have had an opportunity to go and meet the farmers that grow this organic grain for us and they are amazing people. These fine folks have taken one step back and are doing things the right way. This is an American-style craft lager brewed with pale and amber malts and a whole lot of American west coast hops (all of the organic barley malt, hops and yeast come from west of the 100th Meridian–thus the name) to give it a wonderful character that’s 100% organic. It is a truly Canadian craft brew that combines the “best of the west” ingredients, a unique recipe and classic Mill Street smoothness.

Food pairing as per brewery:  With grilled light meat/poultry, corn tortillas and mild salsa, medium cow’s milk cheese
