From Vancouver Island Brewing in Victoria comes their “Faller Northwest Pale Ale”. The beer pours a copper golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of citrus, grain, bread with herbal and floral notes. The flavour is of citrus, pine, bready, grain, herbal, resin and mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5.4% with an IBU of 35. This is a nice standard pale ale and a nice addition to their core lineup.
Commercial Description: This beer celebrates all those who’ve worked hard to make the Island what it is today. Inspired by classic northwest pale ales, it builds a history of its own with aromas of fresh pine and grapefruit, and a hearty malt finish.
