Well this is 28 perfectly sunny days in Vancouver. Today, for once, the sky is clear, and the smog has lifted, and there is a great view of the gulf islands from here in Port Moody.
Mill St Brewery’s “Curious Parrot” is a slightly foggy amber-copper colour, with a citrus scent, and medium head. The first sip has a nice surprising bite that quickly smooths out and disappears, making appearances that are more and mire faint with the sips that follow. The feeling in the mouth turns more and more slick as the glass empties.
The foam clings to the side of the glass leaving a ghostly drooping lace.
This is a lovely beer. Smooth, and mild mannered, but with a bite that surprises you like a dirty one-liner.
