The Canadian Dream

The Canadian Dream is, I'd say, a pale ale.  It's "brewed at De Proef Brouwerij, Belgien" by Mikkeller Brewery, out of Copenhagen, Denmark. Sold in 330mL bottles, it's a cloudy, copper-coloured ale that clocks in at 5.5% alcohol.

It has a jumbo aroma with notes of sweet caramel, citrus, raisins, and evergreen. A symphonic flavour begins with a bassy malt note, adds both bready and sweet elements, and builds to a bitter crescendo.

This brew is amply hopped and satisfied my craving for bitterness.  However, it folds in an array of tastes to form a unique and complex flavour that seems to grow in intensity as you drink it down. I'm not totally sure what makes this beer, brewed in Belgium by a nomadic Danish brewer, a "Canadian Dream", but I certainly enjoyed it.

Rating: 9.0 out of 10.
