1913 Traditional

1913 Traditional is a mildly hazy golden-orange coloured ale from Grand River Brewing, out of Cambridge, Ontario. It comes in a not-very-stylish 500mL bottle and clocks in at 4.5% alcohol. 1913 is topped with a beautiful crown of thick, fluffy white head. It has a grainy, slightly toasty aroma that isn't very potent. It has a smooth mouthfeel with a tiny kick at the back end. Toasted grain notes give way to a bitter finish. It's not exactly hoppy, but bitter for sure.
1913 is honestly a little thin for my tastes, though it is pleasantly smooth, and the flavour is intriguing. Maybe a bit more booze would rounds things out a bit. 

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
