Okanagan Spring Brewery – Cloudy Amber Ale Review
It has been a little while since Okanagan Spring Brewery came out with a new beer. The wait is now over as the Cloudy Amber Ale is a new addition to the line of 341ml bottled brews. Sold in 6-packs nearly everywhere in BC this Okanagan Spring beer comes just in time for summer. Pouring from the bottle a slightly clouded, amber colour the haziness is rather light given the name. The beer is topped with a reasonable finger of head which leaves light signs of lacing left behind on the glass’s sides. The Cloudy Amber Ale smells of a mild, sweet and malty ale in a light and easy drinking package. There is nothing over the top in the nose but that is precisely the goal in this beer. The flavour too is light and easy drinking with touch of sweetness to it. Malt and light hop tones come into play making a fairly one-dimensional beer that has a little more to it than your typical Okanagan Spring beer. This may not be the right choice for the tuned palate of a BC craft beer snob but if you are heading to the beach, going camping or looking for a refreshing beer on a hot summer’s day the Okanagan Spring Cloudy Amber Ale could be just what you are looking for.
