Three Beavers (Howe Sound)

Three Beavers (Howe Sound)
Imperial Red Ale

Beer Advocate A+ (1 rating)

I like this brewery for two reasons. The beers are usually very good and extremely drinkable. The beers are also packaged in 1 liter resealable bottles; so they are perfect for home brewing.

Taste +4

A most pleasant, caramel maltiness burst through the huge pillowy head. The distinctive citrus, floral and spicy aroma from the cascades could also be noted. Every sip had a chewy and juicy sensation on the palate. There was a good mix of bready malts, slightly spicy, with the classic citrus (tangerine) cascade tang.

Aftertaste +2

It left a peanut butter like coating everywhere. The residual hops left a citrus and alcohol tingle on the tongue.

Alcohol Content +1 7.5%

It was a little stronger, but it enhanced the hop tingle.

Value +1

This was a great tasting beer. And at under $8 a bottle I might pick up one more.

Ingame Enhancment +1

Did the Hard Rain map on advanced. It is always great to play with 3 real people for a change. Those guys are very nice and always let me carry the grenade launcher. Why do they always stand so far behind me?

Overall 9/10

This is a great drinkable beer with above average flavour. It was the citrus bite from the cascades, nice bready malt and a chewy mouthfeel. Sadly it only comes in the liter size.
