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.

It’s very intresting to observe how two identical recipes, brewed by two different breweries can have such great gaps in the ratings. This one get 46/100, the Canadian brewed get 99/100. How come? OK, to the rating. 50 cl can. Pale yellow to straw, filtered, two-finger white head, nice rolling carbonation. Aromas from grains and hops. Rather distinct flavour of what I think may be the Saaz hops. Nice level of carbonation and bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin and a bit dry. A generic lager, but with its own identity.

Expected something out of the ordinary. And well, i didn’t get any of what i wanted. This is a completely run-of-the-mill regular norwegian macro-lager. Nothing special about it. The bottle says "Canadian type craft beer". The canadians would be outraged if they saw this! Aroma and flavor doesn’t have much. Some breadyness and spicyness. I wouldn’t be able to tell this apart from any other norwegian macrobrew.

A pretty standard mass market task. Stale bready base and a heavy amount of carbonation. Tried on my beer tour of mediocre Norwegian lagers with Paul and Armin during the Lofoten trip in 2015.

Bottle at wpbf. Pale yellow color, small white head. Sweetish corn-like aroma. Light-bodied. Sweetish malty, corn-like flavor. Light bitterness. Kind of clean but uninspiring.
