Newfoundland Macro Brews: Black Horse

Black Horse is Molson Canada product, brewed in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. It comes in characteristic semi-stubby bottle favoured in Newfoundland and contains 5% alcohol. "Brewed only in Newfoundland and Labrador" declares the label. I'm pretty sure that this stuff is a pale lager.

B.H. is straw gold, well carbonated, and topped with a quickly thinning white head. It's clean, grassy aroma has a bit of a corny quality. It's very light and extraordinarily easy-drinking; however, the flavour is fairly wispy and unimpressive. It's not bad, but not all that interesting. It tastes like a lot of other Canadian macro brews and has a very thin mouthfeel. Other than the N.L.-only pedigree, there isn't much else to distinguish this brew.

Rating: 5.5 out of 10.
