Coming from the Hinterlands of Ontario’s LCBO domain I’ve only seen the Vintage versions of GL beer, which are exceptional. This is the first regular beer, if seasonal, I’ve had. So...Pint poured in a random Philly airport restaurant. Pours dark amber with finer of fluffy beige head. Smells of hops and caramel malt. Taste caramel malts, bitter malts, some ash on the finish with some lingering bitterness. Generally good beer. In a airport no less. 5 years ago it would all be Bud, MGD and Labatt Blue as the import. we’ve come a long way baby. Don’t worry about this one Tiki.
