Cannery Pink Mountainhops Maibock

pink-mountainhops-bigAnd we’re back with another sample from the Canadian Band Beer Series, my third sampling of the lineup and just one shy of completion. Today, it is the Cannery Brewery’s contribution to this CBC-sponsored series, known as Pink Mountainthops – a Maibock brewed in honor of Vancouver-based psychedelic rock legends Pink Mountaintops.

And this latest variety seems very appropriate, seeing as how this past Spring brought its fair share of Maibocks – such as Driftwood’s Mountain Goat Maibock and Moon Under Water’s Brewvic Maibock come to mind. And this one was consistently good, combining a strong sense of tang, German noble hops, a touch of sweet, sugary malts, and a refreshing finish.

Appearance: Golden, clear, good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Slightly sweet malts, mild hop nose
Taste: Immediate tang, slightly sweet malts, dry and herbal hops
Aftertaste: Lingering bitterness and tang, quite refreshing
Overall: 8/10

Just one more to go, and according to my research, RandB brewery are the ones responsible for its creation. Its known as You Say Barely, We Say Rye, a rye ale and named in honor of Abbotsford’s own You Say Party, and I look forward to tracking it down!
