- IBU: N/A
- COUNTRY: Canada
- REGION: Cambridge, ON
- BREWERY: Grand River Brewing
Appearance | Hazy copper/red with a off white head that quickly settles.
Smell |Grainy, malts, cereal-ish, grassy, and caramel.
Taste | Malts (toasted as well), hints of hops, grainy, grassy, earthy, and light spices.
Aftertaste | Dry biscuit finish with hops and malts.
Overall | With the new look of Grand River Brewing, Plowman’s Ale also gets a brand new look as well. This brew is a light-bodied sessionable Red Ale. With its bold malt character that balances out with the light notes of hops and spices. It looks like a medium-bodied brew but you would be surprised. The 4.7% ABV is hardly noticeable. It’s a decent beer from Grand River Brewing.
It was bottled on January 28th, 2014. Gotta love it when they tell you when it was bottled/canned!
Old Review from last year – found this among the backlog of reviews. I will be revisiting this beer in the near future.
