Beer Friday. Whistler Brewery, Whiskey Jack Ale


The week is over and there has been a lapse in the Beer Friday movement as of late. So we are hard at work to bring you folks a beer review. Yes, that is right, we are working hard on a Friday evening while all you thankless people go out for dinner, watch movies and hope you can come home to read a beer review on this here blog because if another week passes without a review you will pick up your laptop, tower, or tablet and throw it at your significant other while sobbing maniacally screaming "WHY AM I NOT GETTING TO READ ANY REVIEWS!.... WHY!" All the while your significant other understands because lonebiker beer reviews help spin this Earth, after dodging the onslaught of internet giving devices thrown their way.

Whistler brewery was established in 1989, the year Stone Roses released their debut album and helped bring epic awesomeness into music (no offence New Kids on the Block). The brewery located in the heart of Whistler, the land of the full face helmet offers tours and tasting around the year and seem to be quite proud to be one hundred percent British columbian. You know what? If I was 100% British Columbian I would be pretty darn proud too!

They proclaim this beer is dry hopped with English Kent hops whatever the hell that means! We poured and it gave me that dark cloudy urine look to it which is not a bad thing when it comes to beer. I could go on about the cloudy urine beer look but you would probably never drink a beer that looks like that which is why I pulled off what I said and left it at "cloudy urine look." Anyway's I feel as though this brewery is going to send me angry letters after this.  The smell was a bit like bread, a fine bead of lacing hung onto the glass as this one went down resembling a pretty cool art piece if it were to hang on a wall. The taste was a bit of a disappointment as watered down  symptoms rained down on a beer with lots of potential but sad realization. A supposed to be hoppy beer with very little. Did they get kidnapped? Not a lot to get excited here for kids...

This beer gets 1.5 suds out of 5. Sorry Robin.

never really cared about celebrities except this guy,
this truly saddened me, not lots of them like mr Williams
