Big Rock Grasshopper is a wheat ale from Alberta. Apparently they grow wheat there, so….
Compared to most wheat ales, Grasshopper is clear, and has a citrus aroma, and smooth lager-like taste.
Apparently after brewing the first batch, the brewmaster had a grasshopper hit his windshield, and thus this beer was a tribute. I wonder what the last thing going through that grasshopper’s head was? This is a fine beer, and a little different.
Judging from the Canucks’ performance tonight, perhaps they should be renamed the Grasshoppers. EEEESH!
Anyhoo, I reviewed this beer last October, and this time around this beer has fared not much better. The head is still weak, but it has a nice clean taste, and despite the outcome of the game, the beer tastes great during spring hockey.
