A fine craft lager from Whistler Brewing Company
I have been trying a ‘character pack’ from a micro-brewery based in Whistler, British Columbia where the next winter Olympics will be held in February 2010.
The Whistler Brewing Company’s case of 12 beers includes three of each of the following beers:
Black Tusk Ale
Classic Pale Ale
Altitude Honey Lager
Premium Export Lager
Surprisingly, it was their Premium Export Lager that stood out for me . I’m usually disappointed by most breweries lagers but this is a very good beer. The beer is aged for up to 6 weeks and, as the Brewmaster’s notes point out on the Whistler Brewery web site, it has a crisp, clean taste that’s slightly sweet with a full creamy body.The recipe is apparently unique as it includes two specialty malts and a unique yeast strain.
If that sounds good, you’d be right. In fact all the beers are of a good quality and are well worth a try
A nice discovery and certainly worthy a gold medal in my book.
