42/1860) Home: 2017 Helles Golden Lager by Amsterdam Brewery: *1/2; 5.2%, 17 ibu; released to mark their 30th anniversary; brewed in the style of one of the first beers produced at the original brewpub on John St. which I used to go to when it was mostly warehouses in the area - long before it became the "Entertainment District"; I missed drinking this on New Year's Day so I'm marking Chinese New Year; malty, grassy nose; the almost pilsner like flavours take us to central Europe;
43/1861) Home: Rascal London Porter by The Inveralmond Brewery of Scotland: **1/2; 5.6%; Inspiration Series #3; "inspired by the mighty brewing styles of 18th century London"; certainly a hearty brew; spiced nose with a touch of alcohol; rich, very dry mocha flavours with notes of roasted grain;
44/1862) Home: Farm Style Vienna Lager by Beau's All Natural Brewing of Ontario: *1/2; 4.7%; dry Eurohop nose with soft edges; very much a blend of the styles; dry finish;
45/1863) Home: Kentucky Cow by Wellington Brewery of Ontario: **; Bourbon Barrel Aged Chocolate milk stout; 7.5%, 18 ibu; brewed with flaked oats, lactose and cocoa; oaky nose; flavours of vanilla, bourbon; alcohol is quite prominent at first; the wax seal suggests it is a candidate for aging;
This looks bad but my son was home for the weekend and there was sharing going on.
