Overview

Barkerville Brewing Co. – Hound of Barkerville Brown Ale ReviewBarkerville Brewing Co. – Hound of Barkerville Brown Ale Review

Quesnel BC is in the business of craft beer with the Barkerville Brewing Company now pumping out the bomber bottles. Number 4 in their bottle line is the Hound of Barkerville Brown Ale. This beer pours an amber copper colour with a single finger of head which leaves light lacing on the glass. The Hound of Barkerville smells very heavy on the malt with a defined caramel sweetness on the back. In addition to the malty-caramel notes a slight creamy-nose comes into play with the slightest of scotch-ale style darkness. The flavour too is rather heavy on the malt with a fairly big body, caramel sweetness and lightly creamy texture. Near the finish the malt builds along with a metallic flavour leaving an iron-esque lingering taste. This is a fairly traditional style brown ale that has been turned slightly up on the malt. Keep an eye out as this bottle will be arriving shortly at your local craft retailer.

    Hound of Barkerville brown ale is a refreshing change from the over-hopped .and fruit-flavoured brews currently offered by many BC breweries. When the malt flavours can shine through they seem to give many drinkers the impression that a beer tastes odd when, in fact, this is the way beer was intended to taste. Your related articles on the same page include an IPA, a ‘double’ IPA and a raspberry (?) porter. I make my point.
