Bomber Brewing Dan Small Strathcona Pale Ale Review Bomber Brewing Co. – Dan Small’s Strathcona Pale Ale Review

Named after iconic Vancouver homebrew store owner Dan Small The Strathcona Pale Ale is Bomber Brewing’s version of a classic and well used homebrew recipe. This beer comes in bomber bottles and pours a colour of clear golden amber and is topped with a thick finger of lacing head. The aroma is of a very classic, old-school pale ale. A toasted malt base props up an english styled hop profile with a touch of caramel and nuttiness on the nose. The flavour too is a throwback to craft pale ales of yesteryear. It is clean and smooth with a bitter bite that comes only from the classic EKG (East Kent Goldings) Hops the light bitter tones are balanced with a malty body, caramel and toasted flavour profile. For the uber hop heads out there this may be a little too much of a flavour throw back but it is well crafted, extremely balanced and a recipe that deserves to live on!

    I think it’s pretty cool that they did this beer. Nice to Honor Dan a person that is responsible for many of our local brewers.
