Under 2. verdenskrig trente mer enn 3000 nordmenn på flyvåpenets treningsleir "Little Norway" i Gravenhurst, Canada, som ble åpnet av dærende Kronprins Olav.

Hvilket forhold norske flyvere, sjømenn og soldater fikk til det lokale ølet kan vi jo bare tenke oss til. Da som nå setter nordmenn og kanadiere pris på de samme tingene: Vakker natur, frisk luft, godt liv og godt øl.

I Gravenhurst ligger det innovative mikrobryggeriet Sawdust City Brewing Co hvor Brewmaster Sam Corbeil bestemmer. Det er han som har laget oppskriften på ølet som du nå holder i hånden.

Med pale lager vil vi brygge bro mellom tradisjonelt øl og mikro bryggeri øl. Pale Lager er en frisk og lettdrikkelig pilsnertype med markant humlearoma og humlesmak fra humlen Saaz. Ølet er brygget på kanadisk malt fra Gilbertson & Page, og har en vakker lys gylden farge.

Ølet produseres på Arendals Bryggeri, med godt norsk vann.

0.5L can. Clear pale, small hat. Metallic, light yeast aroma. New flavour and peculiar taste. Light and soft taste. Malt and corn flavour mainly. Quite booring, but not so bad. Light bitter mouthfeel what is good.

tfredvik (1120) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2014
Crystal clear, very very pale golden body with a white head that ends up as a fully covering film, fairly good lacing. Moderate aroma and flavour of sweet pale malts and grain, with citrus in the back. Light sweet and very light bitter taste. Dry and light mouthfeel and quite lively carbonation. Definitely boring, but no real off-flavours.
[50 cl can, enjoyed 6 months before BB date, from Meny Tvedestrand]

Pours like any pale lager, but with a poor head. Aromas are corn, cardboard, light grains, and metal. Taste is bland, not bitter at all, and slightly on the sweet side. Mouthfeel is like any macrolager; thin and fizzy. The beer has a nice story on the bottle, and the brewery claims that they are ’bridging the gap between traditional beer and micro breweries’, but I have no idea how the people marketing this managed to get away with using the words "micro" and "traditional" to describe the most macro-y kind of beer there is, or how they thought a pale lager would be something "new and fresh" in Norway, where 9/10 beers sold are pale lagers.

HoppyBudgie (692) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2014
Ok golden pale for a summer day, Some maltyness, some hoppyness and easy pour on a summerday. But nothing more than that

33cl bottle from Coop Extra, Storo. Pours pale golden with a rather small, white head. Rather unpleasant chemical smell that reminds me a bit of glue. Not sure that is supposed to be there. Besides the unpleasant chemical aroma there is some grainy and slightly herbal notes too. Moderate sweet and slightly nauseating flavours with a lightly bitter finish. Not sure if there is just something wrong with my bottle or of it is this bad. Pretty close to undrinkable.
