Canadian Band Beer – Townsite Brewing Inc – Said The Ale Belgian Pale Ale Review
As a part of the CBC Radio 3 Canadian Band Beer series Townsite Brewing Inc along side BC band sensation Said the Whale has released the Said The Ale. This Belgian Pale Ale pours an amber-copper colour with a finger and a half of glass lacing head. The Said The Ale smells of rich Belgian malts, caramel sweetness and a touch of piney northwest hops. The taste is mellow starting off with a Belgian style malt and a floral notes and a wheatiness to the body. A caramel sweetness also comes into the flavour early on before mellowing and allowing the hop bitterness to come through at the end. The finish comes in quite dry with a mid-hopped, pine flavour. Overall the Said The Ale takes what we all love in a Belgian Ale plus the hop bitterness from a Pacific Northwest style Pale Ale. The flavours are complex and enjoyable making for a very drinkable and great tasting ale.
