Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of creamy off-white head, excellent retention and moderate soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: dank pine, caramel, citrus, earth. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (4/5)

Given the name I assumed these guys were a new BC brewery, but no, they’re Airdrie. Except not really, because this one is contract brewed by GP in Grande Prairie. So, BC name for a southern AB brewing company but a beer brewed in northern AB. Makes perfect sense, right? Anyhoo, the beer is OK: emphatic-leaning bitter and resiny pine on a malty caramel backbone. I’d like more hop (variety and intensity) in the aroma, but overall it’s a good enough six pack for SuperBowl LIII. (14/20)
