TORONTO, ON – Mill Street Brewery has revealed the contents of its Summer Seasonal Sampler pack for 2015, which combines three core brands and a returning summer seasonal with two new limited edition beers.
Joining the trio of flagship beers – Organic Lager, Tankhouse Ale and 100th Meridian Amber Lager – and summer seasonal Lemon Tea are the following new offerings, with tasting notes provided by Mill Street brewmaster Joel Manning:
Ginger Cat (5% abv)
This is a Mill Street twist on an old Belgian-style witbier or “white beer” made with raw and malted wheat along with orange peel and candied stem ginger added in the brewing process. The ginger adds a bright heat to the palate and complements the fruity yeasty tones perfectly. This beer is made with a small amount of light caramel malt to give it a bit of a candy tone as well as New Zealand Pacific Gem and German Hersbrucker hop varieties in order to give it a very drinkable balance. This beer is served unfiltered and so it will have a light haziness to it from the yeast in suspension.
Stargazer Summer Ale (4.1% abv)
This is a classic summer ale typical of the light ales made in England for the short summer months. Low in alcohol, this “session” bitter is a very drinkable hoppy ale designed to be very full flavoured without the high alcohol of a lot of the modern IPAs. Made with a blend of Canadian, English and German hops this is a very uniquely refreshing beer. Designed for very high level of dry-hop flavour and moderate bitterness, this ale is the perfect accompaniment to sitting on a patio with friends.
The new Mill Street Summer Seasonal Sampler six pack will be available starting next week at select LCBO locations throughout Ontario.
