Coal Harbour Brewing Co. – Triumph Rye Ale Review
The Coal Harbour Brewing Co. has been brewing some great beer since their opening just this past year. One new ale that they have come up with is the Triumph Rye Ale. Rye Ales have become trendy over the last couple years with a smooth and unique flavour. This particular Rye Ale is a copper colour that is as transparent as (copper coloured) glass. Two fingers of head top this ale as it settles moderately fast leaving a thick residue clinging to the glass. A mild, malted aroma comes through the head with a light, northwest style hop bitterness tied to it. Flavour here is quite nice. A mellow start builds into a hop bitterness quickly. This is compounded by a peppery spice and caramel sweetness leaving the palate with a complex and unique flavour palate. The Triumph Rye Ale is a wonderful rendition of a new style beer. Coal Harbour has managed to take signature northwest attributes and pair them with the rye malt to create a delicious, smooth and very drinkable beer.
