Loose Lips Lager
A Vienna lager hailing from Toronto, Loose Lips Lager is brewed by Longslice Brewery. It's 473mL can contains a couple of humourous quips, including the admonition "Seriously: Don't drink and boat!" (good advice), some nautical punnery, and the fact that Loose Lips is the "ultra premiumiest". It contains a modest 5% and pours an attractive dull copper colour--clear with an eggshell head.
Loose Lips has a rich, sweet nose, with roasted malt and caramel notes. The flavour has a similar profile. It's a bit too sweet for me, but has a nice malt body and some buttery and bready elements. The finish had a tinge of hops, but not a lot.
Loose Lips is my second dance with a Longslice product, after trying their Hopsta La Vista (which I didn't love). I thought that Loose Lips was a much better beer. Despite its over-sweetness, it tasted well made and pleasant.
