From Moody Ales in Port Moody in collaboration with West Coast Canning a mobile canning operation locally comes their “Mixed Forecast mix pack” containing the Shorts Weather ISA and the Still Raining Dark Lager. This pack is just like the weather in Metro Vancouver in the spring, dark and stormy or almost summer like sometimes in the same day.
Still Raining Dark Lager
Still Raining Dark Lager pours a black colour with a brown head. The aroma consists of mild roasted malts, caramel malts some coffee and a sweet note. The flavour is of roasted malts, burnt coffee, mild caramel, earth and some bitterness in the finish. The alcohol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 24. Can’t beat a good dark lager on a cold day and I would say this is a good one to enjoy on those days.
Shorts Weather ISA
Shorts Weather India Session Ale pours a copper colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of fruity and floral hops with maybe a hint of malt. The flavour is of resin, mild bitterness, citrus, melon with the slightest hint of malts. The alcohol content comes in at 4.8% with an IBU of 47. If you are looking for an IPA to session all day then you would do well to drink this one for sure. Low alcohol and full flavour will make for a good session.
