Juniper Lime Ale – Vancouver Island Brewing


From Vancouver Island Brewing in Victoria comes their “Juniper Lime Ale”.  The beer pours a cloudy dark orange with a white head.  The aroma consists of juniper, lime with honey notes.  The flavour is of juniper, herbal, honey, lime, caramel malts, mild tartness with some very minor bitterness in the finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 13.  This beer was fashioned after the gin cocktail Gimlet.  I don’t know the cocktail but I did really like this beer.

Commercial Description:  Cheerful nights on warm patios. This Juniper Lime Ale has been brewed to imitate the refreshing zest of a Gimlet cocktail, an iconic gin-based summer sipper.
