Today I try out a new way of writing about beer and hopefully it will be a bit more personable and enjoyable to read (worth a go hey?). For this review, I am cracking open a Great Lakes Brewery beer from Toronto Canada called Meanwhile...Down in Moxee. A New England Style IPA, clocking in at a pretty standard and respectable 6.5%. Here is the official write up:
Hazy in appearance, coming awfully close to the look of non-pulped orange juice. Aromas of honeydew melon, cantaloupe, pear and a soft touch of vanilla. Bold melon flavours on the first sip, which lead to some peach, green pear and cantaloupe mid palate. Juicy up front, but finishes dry with a touch of bitterness. Soft mouthfeel making the 6.5% abv deceptive. The El Dorado hops takes GLB down a different road...
Overall a nice enough brew, nothing offensive, nothing exciting, a nice easy drinking middle of the road beer. I recommend trying at least once, then maybe pass by for some other beer off their self like Octopus wants to Fight.
I hope you enjoyed the new format? Be sure to drop me a comment below and remember to subscribe to stay up to date on the new things I am getting up to.
