OCB Discovery Pack #12 Tasting Notes

Cameron's Brewing — Cameron's Auburn Ale
Deliciously complex, this west coast style ale uses "tons" of citrus aromatic American hops. Watch for a generous hop nose, smooth maltiness followed by a deep dry smooth hoppy finish. Auburn Ale has consistently medaled at the Canadian and Ontario Brewing Award and was Silver medalist at the 2010 US Open Beer Championships. (LCBO #516195)

F&M Brewery — StoneHammer Premium Light Lager
A finely crafted light lager produced with 100% Premium Pilsner malt, An easy drinking Lager with a light refreshing malt taste. In other words, a light beer with flavor! (LCBO #286401)

Great Lakes Brewery — Devil's Pale Ale
Brewed with 6 select malts and 4 premium hops. Devil's Pale Ale has a rich mahogany colour, reminiscent of early English pale ales. The wonderful hoppy aroma is revealed even before your first sip, followed by a hearty malty body, and culminating with a pronounced bitterness. Prepare yourself for a devilishly good time ... (LCBO #615880)

King Brewery — King Vienna Lager
A true to style Vienna Lager. This amber lager is built with the best German Vienna malt and only noble hops. Toffee and toasted flavours are up front followed by a crisp dry noble hop finish. (LCBO #243410)

Mill Street Brewing — Mill Street Lemon Tea Beer
A Franco-Belgian style made with wheat malt and flavoured with black tea added during the aging (so that we get the full-flavour of the tea aromatics but without the tannic bitterness) and finished with lemon juice to give it a fresh citric tang (served with a lemon wedge...). (LCBO #186783)

Skeena Brewing Brewery — Wolfgang Premium Lager
The flavour complexities of Wolfgang’s® German Style Beer reward the discriminating beer drinker with slightly more bitterness and a satisfying flavour experience. Care was taken to create a premium lager beer that is just slightly more bitter using a blend of choice hops including Hersbruckers to achieve the desired balance.Wolfgang’s® beer is rich in colour—gold and bronze tones; and, the beer is lightly carbonated.
