Lionshead Cascadian Dark Ale – Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub

From Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub out of Victoria comes the “Lionshead Cascadian Dark Ale” brewed for the reopening of the Robson’s Lion’s Head Smoke & Brew Pub in the Kootenays.  The beer pours a deep brown with a brown head.  The smell the beer delivers is a sweet malty and nutty aroma that is quite tantalizing.  The flavor does not disappoint as it is a nutty, malty flavor with a sweet and bitter finish.  The beer has a touch of Guarrana which is a natural caffeine that will help you keep going on a long night of drinking.  The beer sits at an alcohol content of 6.5%.
