Lighthouse goes Overboard

April 20th, 2011 Posted by Brewery News, British Columbia No Comment yet

Lighthouse Brewing will be releasing the fourth beer of their “Big Flavour” series on April 29th.

“Overboard Imperial Pilsner has an intense flavour profile and a strong 8.5% alc/vol. A long cool fermentation with a pure pilsner yeast strain creates a very unique spicy flavour and a soft malty body. Considered to be one of the best hops in the world, and straight off the vines from the 2010 German harvest, Hallertau Mittlefruh is the only hop used in this beer. This pilsner is crystal clear with a rich golden colour and is best enjoyed well chilled and served in a stemmed tulip glass.”

Personally, I can’t wait. But if that seems a little ‘big’ for your palate, they’re also releasing their summer mix pack, with a new Cream Ale inside!

“Brewed as a modern take on traditional pre-prohibition cream ales, Lighthouse Cream Ale glows a burnished orange and drinks with a silky smooth mouth feel. Vienna and Cara malts add richness and depth of flavour, and new season whole-leaf New Zealand hops lend enticing floral and tropical fruit aromas. Fresh and fragrant, clean and compelling, Lighthouse Cream Ale is the perfect farewell to a setting west coast sun.”
