Similar to the packages released last fall for BC Craft Beer Month, the two samplers – one featuring bottles, the other cans – are 12-packs that each include two containers each of six different beers.
Light golden-copper with a very faint haze and a small, quick white head. Nice aroma of sharp but not obnoxious hops - citrus, blackcurrant, bit of pine - with a backing caramel sweetness. Flavour is well balanced, starting with barley candy sweetness, getting a big twiggy in the middle, and moving into a moderately bitter and pleasingly dry finish with orange peel and pine notes. There’s also a bit more boozy warmth toward the end than is ideal, but that’s not a deal-breaker - it’s a winning brew otherwise.
