Beer Friday. Mt Begbie Brewing, Brave Liver Scotch Ale


Back to the pre-written reviews after a wasted day. Yes, a trip to Old Timers for a ride today where I pulled out the bike and discovered my rear skewer was missing. Well damn... A quick search throughout the Lonebiker travel vehicle warranted nothing.

Tail tucked I went home and searched Lonebiker headquarters. With nothing coming up I frustratedly threw my helmet and sat steaming mad thinking of how sloppy I have become with anything regarding bikes. So after some angry thoughts towards myself I did the right thing...

I got straight in my vehicle and went straight to the liquor store.

Bring on Mt Begbie. One of the first breweries reviewed here and it was a winner. I've had many Mt Begbie Cream Ales since reviewing it and they always bring a nostalgic tear to my eye. located in Revelstoke British Columbia, easily one of the coolest t mountain towns I have ever been to The brewery started in nineteen ninety six. The year Mrs Lonebiker and me started dating. Damn... What a lucky girl!

The pour revealed a dark yet golden splash of wonder. This Scottish ale had a nice aroma of caramel and roasted almonds. Small traces of lacing slid down the glass as this one was consumed reminding me creepily of my wedding night when I did my pec dance as ripped off my tuxedo undershirt to the tunes of N Sync. Yes... Good times.

The tastes of caramel and roasted hops a with small tinge of burnt pine needle round this out. this one is best drank on a cold Wineter night and not in mid August as what I am doing now. It is a delicious beer yet I was hoping for more of a Scotch kick to it which sadly brought nothing.

This beer gets 3.5 suds out of 5.

With another failed ride attempt yesterday on the Winter Warrior with a chain snapping near the beginning of a ride and nothing to repair it...
