Whistler brewing has presented us with a superb lager, Powder Mountain Lager.
The bottle is whistler brewing’s usual slim necked (but slightly smaller than average) beauty. This one came in their “travel pack” which is a gorgeous mix pack, packaged in an old-school 2×6 12-pack (a throw back to the 70s and 80s…before I was allowed to drink)…(not much before).
The beer itself is lightly coloured and clear as the driven snow. The taste is actually not unlike a handful of powdery snow: clean and crisp.
This lager has a much cleaner taster than the export lager they presented last year, and is an excellent example of a great Canadian lager.
It’s a great day in Vancouver. We enjoyed a Whitecaps game this afternoon in the sunshine, during this week-long break before the Canucks start the Stanley Cup Final…. No big deal, whatever…
This Weissbier was enjoyed with some nice barbecued chicken skewers on the deck. It is golden and foggy. It has a moderately intense aroma, of wheat and a hint of citrus. The taste is quite fruity, and the label was kind enough to point out that it has banana and clove flavors. It has a lot of body, making it a nice satisfying drink.
The flavors are nice and it has a smooth clean finish with no aftertaste.
