16oz pint in Invermere, British Columbia, at a place called Huckleberry's - of course it is. Always neat when you open a restaurant menu on vacation, and there's a brew you've never had before staring back at you!

This beer appears a clear, medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, frothy, and duly foamy bone-white head, which leaves some splendid spidery webbed lace around the glass as it evenly bleeds away.

It smells of bready, doughy pale malt, a bit of salty white crackers, rainbow peppercorn spice, and earthy, leafy, and grassy hops. The taste is grainy, bready pale malt, a hint of sourdough, faint light orchard fruit, mildly spicy yeast, and weedy, leafy, and dried hay-like hops.

The carbonation is nice and light in its come-hither frothiness, the body an adequate middleweight, and mostly smooth, nothing kicking around here that might cause trouble. It finishes barely off-dry, the biscuity and doughy malt holding down the fort.

A simple and well-made version of this crowd-pleasing summer staple on this side of the pond. Much more rounded in flavour than the typical blondes you usually run into around here, and for that, I'm impressed. Worthy of giving a go, especially when the sun comes out to play - looking forward to some of that myself.
