Pick of the week

Granville Island Brewing Lions Winter Ale, British Columbia Add to ...

  • Rating 87
  • Price $12.95/six-pack in Ontario

Just released for 2012, this dark-amber seasonal brew reminds me of Pot of Gold boxed chocolates. Subtly sweet, it’s malty and delivers flavours of vanilla, caramel, cherry, Christmas spices and nuts. Actively effervescent for the style, its foam subsides quickly, with no lacing on the glass. A nice, clean, easy-drinking brown brew for the holidays. $12.25/six-pack in B.C.
