Little Norway Pale Lager
Little Norway Pale Lager is built in Gravenhurst, Ontario by the esteemed brewing minds at Sawdust City Brewing Co. According to the copy on the 473mL can, apparently Gravenhurst was used as a training ground for Norwegian Air Force pilots during WWII. This brew was made in conjunction with the Norwegian outfit Arendals Bryggeri.
It weighs in at a light and fluffy 4.5%. It's a clear golden lager that pours with a thin white head. It has a grainy nose that has a waft of hops. Pretty flavourful for a low alcohol lager, Little Norway has a grassy vibe that turns to meager hops toward the finish.
It's not anything all that special in terms of being unique or atypical, but it is a nice brew--well made and enjoyable. Not as crisp as I'd have liked though.
Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
