212/1486) Home: Raspberry Wheat Ale by Garrison Brewing Company of Nova Scotia: *1/2; 4.6%; wheaty, raspberry nose; starts sharp and wheaty and finishes with fresh raspberry; refreshing but not my favourite raspberry beer;
This is the last of the beers I brought home from Nova Scotia. I am sort of regretting not picking up Local One by Brooklyn, in much the same way that I regretted doing the same in Manhattan. In both instances I was having a hard time paying so much for one bottle but I think if I have the good fortune to encounter it again I will bite the bullet.
213/1487) Home: Highland Ale by Innis and Gunn of Scotland: **1/2; 7.4% a Scotch ale matured over oak infused with Highland Scotch whisky for 30 days; brewed with wheat and barley malt; the nose is sweet and midly spiced; tastes sweet with oaky vanilla notes;
214/1488) Home: Hobgoblin Gold by Wychwood Brewery of England: **; 4.5%; brewed with 4 hops, wheat and malted barley; mixed hop nose with pilsner-like elements and herbal notes; hoppy in a non Pacific northwest kind of way and interesting for that; it is a bit fruity (berries) with a bitter finish;
