On-tap at the Earl's restaurant chain - the waitress insisted that it was made by 'Bear Brewing', in British Columbia. Further post-dining research comes up with a Bear Brewing in Kamloops, which, through various ownership changes, now appears to be Kamloops Brewing. So, on to the suds...

This pint appears a clear medium amber hue, with one finger of soapy white head, which leaves sparse lace as it recedes. It smells of biscuit and caramel malt, and mild grassy, floral hops. The taste is biscuit malt, some nuttiness, and mild earthy hops. The carbonation is a bit on the high side, the body a bit short of medium weight, and it finishes dry and clean.

An adequate quaff to go with that restaurant-style burger, the reason I darkened the doorstep of this establishment in the first place.

The Albino Rhino Ale was on tap at Earl's Restaurant in Calgary. The Rhino ale was yellow/golden clear in color and offered a thin white head. There was not much smell, a little malt, which lent me to believe this was a Eastern US type Pale ale. The taste was not the best simple pale ale that I have tasted. Not alot going on...nothing to fancy. Had some grain and malt flavors. The mouthfeel was not great due to the taste and I do not think I would order this beer again.

This beer pours a darker cooper color, with a nice lacing head. The smell was very weak, very watery, but some what of a hoppy note could be picked up. The taste was also rather watery, again some of the hops could be picked up, but overall a weak taste. Overall not a horrible beer, way to weak, but the flavor isnt offensive.

Tried at Earl's on main in Winnipeg.

A: It’s a clear amber with a finger worth of off white head. Settles to a solid cap that lasts entire time and left a decent amount of lacing.

S: The smell wasn’t particularly strong but it was of biscuit malt.

T: Once again the biscuit malt with a bit of grassy hops but hardly noticeable.

M: Medium carbonation with a medium body.

O: Another good choice if you’re at an Earl’s restaurant and don’t want to drink any of the BMC products.
