Lagerboy (1071) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2013 Clear lager yellow, foamy white head settles and lasts. Mild malty grassy aroma. Clean crisp light ale with an even malt hop balance, some faint citrus. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Mild bitter finish. Good starter for Lagerboys looking to branch out from their regular industrial swill before they try a real IPA.

Very nice for a European style India Ale. Refreshing and definitely not a Westcoast IPA as it has a nice bite then goes away you true HopHeadz will want the gut wrencher. I like the fact I want to drink another 2 or 3. I don’t like IPA to harsh so a nice european flavor leaves me wanting more. Great introduction to IPA for me. I understand that Cariboo brews right from the source and draws water from a natural aquifer. Most of the craft breweries I know have to treat their water or ozonate which takes the true flavor of the water away.
