This month’s BestofBeers Box contains a combination of 16 of the following local and imported beers:

 

CITIZEN SABOTEUR ENGLISH IPA

Light-bodied with a spicy, moderate bitterness, followed by subtle toasty/toffee tones and a lingering spicy hop flavour.

DEVIL’S PEAK BREWING CO THE KING’S BLOCKHOUSE IPA

Prominent hop aroma of citrus and passion-fruit. Medium bitterness, although the malt supports the strong hop character and provides good balance. Medium to dry finish.

CITIZEN DIPLOMAT CZECH PILSNER

A dry, crisp and refreshing Pilsner. Medium-light bodied with a clear, golden colour. Initially quite bitter but smooths out with slightly sweet malt flavour and a dry finish.

RED SKY BREW WARHAWK RED ALE

Made in an Irish red ale style. Good malty body with low hop bitterness, subtle toasted and chocolate flavours make this an easy-drinking session beer.

CITIZEN ALLIANCE AMBER ALE

Alliance is a light-bodied, amber-coloured beer with a mild bitterness, followed by rich caramel tones, finishing with a subtle piney hop flavour.

RED SKY BREW THE VAMPIRE ROBUST PORTER

A smooth, warming and pitch black take on a porter; enticing even the non-porter drinker. The nose greets you with dark chocolate and coffee and the beer is rich in flavour.

DEVIL’S PEAK BREWING CO FIRST LIGHT GOLDEN ALE

Moderate fruity aromas of floral, melon and tropical fruit. Soft malty sweetness, light to moderate hop flavour. Low to medium bitterness with good balance. Finish medium dry.

RED SKY BREW TWEETY BIRD AMBER ALE

Typical American amber ale. Fresh citrus notes, backed by a medium malty body and relatively strong bitterness. Caramel malt adds a slight sweetness.

RED SKY BREW THE AVENGER PALE ALE

The Avenger is a great summer session ber, with a fruity nose that follows through with a spicy hop character. A sweet malty flavor rounds this beer off perfectly.
