Whistler Brewing Co – Black Tusk Ale Review
Whistler Brewing Company has brought back the Black Tusk Ale for another year. This English style, mild ale pours from the bottle a deep, chestnut brown colour topped with a finger and a half of off-white head. The aroma is rather light with a slight caramel sweetness, malted back and a touch of English style hop. The flavour is also quite light with the malted tones in the front row. A light toasted flavour and a touch of caramel, chocolate and coffee come in along side with a very mild hop in the finish. There is nothing big about this beer but the Black Tusk Ale is not supposed to blow you away. This is a very sessionable, lightly flavoured dark ale that can be enjoyed by just about anyone.
