Newfoundland Macro Brews: Bennett Dominion Ale

I'd say that, of the Newfoundland macros that I sampled in St. John's during my honeymoon, Bennett Dominion Ale was my fave and I really loved the sparse, retro-looking label. B.D.A. is brewed by Molson Canada in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. It contains 5% alcohol and comes in 341mL semi-stubby bottles.

It's a very clear yellow-gold brew topped with a thick fog of white head. It has a clean farm aroma of grain and corn. Its mild taste starts with some corn notes and then corners into a slightly bitter finish. It's not a tremendously interesting beer, but it's fairly well balanced. It's easily quaffed and inoffensive.

Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
