Went to the great lakes brewery release party last nite for the launch of their green tea ale.
Its delicious...very drinkable, very smooth, very refreshing, and I will be going to my local lcbo to grab a few cases shortly.
Has anyone else tried it?
I was pleasantly surprised by this beer, a little lighter than Great Lakes other seasonal brews, and the green tea element is actually quite reserved... the ginger component really only coming through on the back of the palate.
Being a wine bar, we don't usually offer that many beers, but this one really stood out for me, so I purchased a few cases.
I've had two in the bottle. I thought it was just OK, because I prefer stronger flavours. It was crisp and light with a faint herb-y taste. Certainly worth a try. Nothing wrong with it, and it is good to support local suppliers who are trying to be creative. If you like lighter tasting beers then this is a fine example.
had a half pint at the rebel house the other night. it was pretty good. i agree with everyone about it's mild flavor, and yes it is VERY drinkable.
