From Red Collar Brewing in Kamloops in the Thompson Okanagan comes their “Session Pale Ale”.  The beer pours an amber colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of malty butterscotch and floral hops.  The flavour is of toasted malts, butterscotch, lemon, sweetness and some hops bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 4.2% with an IBU of 39.  If you are looking for a nice drinkable sessionable pale ale this might just be your beer for this summer.

Commercial Description:  A session ale perfect for fun in the sun during warm summer days. Golden in colour, mildly hopped and balanced with malt for a light bodied beer.


Deadpale Ale – BRB Co

From BRB Co (Be Right Back Brewing) in Richmond comes their “Deadpale Ale” a beer that unofficially ties into the movie Deadpool showing across the street. The beer pours a mildy cloudy golden to copper colour with a white head. The aroma consists of a really bready and grainy malt presence with some good citrus notes in the finish and some floral hops although mild. The flavour is of bready and grainy malts, caramel and citrus with some very mild hops bitterness. This is definitely an English Pale Ale and not a West Coast Pale. The alcohol content comes in at a very sessionable 4.3% with an IBU of 26. While this beer is not going to knock you socks off like deadpool would or kick you in the face with hops it is a tasty beer and I am sure Deadpool would support drinking a few in a sitting.
