Beer Friday . Okanagan Spring 1516 Bavarian Lager
On a rather happy Friday despite the weather (why am I happy ?.....oh yes ! The Mojo is now a screamin trail slaying machine) . Okanagan Spring started in 1985 in the heart of the Okanagan valley in oh-so-awesome British Columbia (if only we could rid of all those damn hippies). Now that would be the life wouldn`t it . Working at a brewery in the heart of B.C .......DEEAAMMM ! Well back to reality now , I have honestly never heard of this beer until tonight but judging from the Internet it does seem fairly popular . And my friends let me tell you , the Internet knows all !
I was lazy with this one and skipped the pour and just drank from the bottle . According to Okanagan Spring they kept it simple with barley , hops , grains and water and you get a simple beer . It tasted fine by my pro standards . With a flavour that is mild, it doesn`t gross you out, yet it doesn`t get you excited either .
This beer gets 3.5 suds out of 5
