COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mosaic hops lend to this light and fruity ale with a good bitterness and malt balance, coupled with refreshing hop aromatics. This session ale is bit on flavour and light in alcohol.

Canada pale ale malt, Munich malt, Caravienne malt, Mosaic hops; ABV 4%; IBU 40; SRM 8

On February 4th, 2014 we launched our new ISA – India Session Ale at a “mystery beer” launch event. The event was held at Darby’s Pub in Vancouver and featured an expert panel consisting of Certified Cicerone and Beer Educator Chester Cary, author of Craft Beer Revolution Joe Wiebe, and Dustan Sept of Norco Bicycles & BeerMeBC.com. Along with a room full of Central City fans the lads blind tasted the latest Red Racer release. To find out what they thought check out the video on our brand new RedRacerBeer.com!

Editor’s note: Alcohol on the cans says 4%, but reports from the brewpub tend to have a lower number.

stevoj (2873) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 22, 2015
Can from On the Fly. Not picking up on this, not the way it was with the IPA. Light bodied, almost creamy consistency, light malty aroma. Taste is very crisp, pilsnerish, finishes with some sharp bitterness and a hint of metallic taste. I’ll try the rest of the six and see if my opinion changes.

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 21, 2015
Transparent golden orange with a meager white head. Potent aromatics consisting of grapefruit, hops, pine, and malt. Pleasantly light body. Tartness reigns supreme with notes of grapefruit, lemon, hops and pine. Nice session.

BiereLuc (1137) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
Orangée, presque limpide, peu mousseuse. Nez effacé, un peu diacétyle (meh) et fermier (yeah). Des houblons assez fruités s’exilent sur une trame relativement mince. L’amertume est grossière (pour le style) et résineuse (sans finesse). Ce n’est pas mauvais, mais ce n’est pas bon non plus. Je m’attendais à réellement mieux.

Lubiere (11155) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2015
A golden ipa with a thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, loads of beautiful resinous and piney floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light butterscotch, very nice. In mouth, a nice sweet biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, light tropical fruits, very nice. Can from LCBO.
