The most recent beer of the month delivery included two beers from Strathroy Brewing. We’ve had a few beers from this particular brewer in the past as part of the beer of the month club and didn’t mind them. This month’s selections were a similar experience — they were decent but didn’t stick out in my mind as fantastic.
The 1915 Longwoods Lager poured a pale yellow with minimal head. It had a clean taste to it with a slightly citrus note and was very smooth for a lager. No harsh aftertaste or bitter notes. Fairly run of the mill but perfect on a sunny day. Andrew and I enjoyed the first sample of this beer under a shady tree in Muskoka chairs – perfect drink for that kind of afternoon.
The 1815 Peace Wheat ale was a much darker colour than I would have anticipated. It was also slightly bitter which is a bit unusual for a Belgian style ale. There was a malt note and a very flight bit of hops in the taste. Similar to the Longwoods Lager this was a very smooth drinking selection that was good but not exceptional.
