This one was a real pleasure to brew. Big thanks to Sleeman and all the ex-Upper Canada folks who helped us dial in the recipe.
Upper Canada Repatriation Lager
Style: American Lager, Pre-Prohibition/Premium Style
OG: 14 Plato
Aroma: bread dough, grain husks, freshly baked biscuits, crackers.
Appearance: Deep gold/light copper with a touch of red. Crystal clear with an ivory colored, persistent head. Significant lacing.
Taste: Bready/biscuity upfront balanced well by hop bitterness on the finish, touch of pretzel and very slight minerality. Clean: no yeast derived character. Finishes crisp inviting another sip.
Mouthfeel: medium to medium-high body with medium to medium high carbonation. Crisp, highly drinkable.
Overall Impression: A full-flavoured, yet very balanced, premium domestic lager.
