New Thing #24: Orange Peel Ale


I like me a good flavoured beer. There, I said it.

This one intrigued me both because of it’s seasonal choice to add orange peels to it and the fact that it’s local. 

Turns out there’s a reason I haven’t heard of Great Lakes Brewery before. It’s just not that great of a beer. 

When I think of a seasonal, flavoured beers I think of stronger flavours than I get here. The McAuslan’s Raspberry Wheat, for instance, isn’t overwhelming in its berry taste but it’s definitely strong enough to notice on each sip. This just sort of sits on your tongue while you try to sort things out.

Plus the bottle’s gigantic. 650ml to be exact. At that size I’ll probably like it a lot more when I’m done than when I began.
