Deep Cove Brewers – Wise Crack West Coast Lager Review
As a part of the year-round beer offerings from the Deep Cove Brewers and Distillers this beer gives a west coast twist on a traditional style. Pouring a golden colour this well-hopped lager pours with two full fingers of head which settles quite slowly with broad streaking left on the glass. The smell coming off the Wise Crack West Coast Lager is a delicate combination of smooth malted notes and a slightly piney, west coast style hop. The flavour is light and crisp with great malted flavours coming through early on. This crisp malt builds into a full bodied, hop explosion soon thereafter. While the 48 IBU may not be way out there for a west coast brewed beer, it is rather high for a lager. The result is a crisp and balanced beer that takes what so many BC beer lovers appreciate and blends it perfectly with a sessionable lager. This is a lager with a backbone and is extremely delicious!
The line of bottled Deep Cove Beers may be tough to find until distribution grows but you can find this at the North Vancouver brewery and at select Greater Vancouver craft beer retailers.
