A delicious, malty, copper ale brewed in limited quantities every spring, it is made with 100% barley, hops, water & yeast. It is named for the Canadian epic, Squamish BC’s Test of Metal Mountain Bike Race, a 67 km single-track race featuring 1,000 riders and an army of community volunteers to make it Canada’s most successful grassroots mountain bike race

Slightly hazy. More dark amber than copper but that’s splitting hairs - with a loose tan head this beer looks great. Very toasty aroma...vague chocolate/coffee dark malt stuff in there, too. And fuggleish hops, that horrid yoghurty-mossy note. Yeah. Lots of this same stuff - the toast, that same hop character - on the palate as well. That’s two things that I don’t like and they are predominant in this beer. I can’t fault the workmanship of the brew but ultimately success starts with concept. A good idea executed poorly doesn’t work and neither does this - a bad idea (combining two of beer’s laziest, most unappetizing flavour possibilities) done well.
