Cannery Brewing – Canadian Band Beer – Pink Mountainhops Maibock Review
The fourth and final BC beer in the Canadian Band Beer series comes from Penticton’s Cannery Brewing. Based around the BC band Pink Mountaintops comes a Maibock called the Pink Mountainhops. This Bock style, German lager is golden in colour with a thick, three fingered head. The smell is of bold malts, German style hops and a faint sweetness. The flavour is bolder than your average lager with strong malts, surprising hop smoothness and just the right amount of sweetness. In the Pink Mountainhops, the malt and hop flavours work perfectly together for a beer that is flavourful, light and surprisingly complex. I am not sure what turned Cannery Brewing’s settings to 11 for this brew but the Pink Mountainhops is a cut above their primary lineup. Another great beer from CBC Radio 3 and Cannery Brewing.

This is the fourth beer to be released as a BC, Canadian Band Beer. This was a joint venture between CBC Radio 3 and some of the top craft breweries in British Columbia. In addition to the Pink Mountainhops from Cannery Brewing be sure to check out these other fine beers.
