Great Lakes Fernado's. New, or at least new to me.

Kind of old school. A bit more malt forward than I've become accustomed to, but I'd call it well balanced anyway. No real hop aroma, all malt. Not a bad thing, just more of a celebration of a style we don't get much of these days, or done well these days. I'll give it 8/10 for interest and 9/10 for execution.

Picked up the latest Thrust! on the same shop. Very nice. Got a big hit of grapefruit out of that can.

According to Wellington Brewery, today is International Stout Day. Who knew? (I didn't).

But I'll participate. I will be having a Henderson Export Stout this evening.

This years GLB Lake Effect is a real winner. Last years was a great return to form, but I think this year is even better. Somehow well balanced, but still lively flavour and aroma. Dare I say, it's probably their best beer.

Also tried a new GLB offering, Sultana Solero NEIPA. It looks to be a one off. It seems to have a softer/smoother profile than many current NEIPAs out there that are leaning a bit too acrid. I would definitely restock on this one too.

Agreed drank one last weekend and it was fantastic. Will be buying more next weekend when they release the NEIPA versions of Canuck and Octopus wants to Fight. For variety and value, my favorite brewery. The styles they make are what I like to drink.
