Spinnakers Brewing Co. – Lion’s Head Cascadia Dark Ale Review

The Casciadian Dark Ale is a deep brown colour that shines through with a reddish tinge. This beer pours with a thin, light head and smells of a malty chocolate. Tasting this Victoria based brew the carbonation is light and the malty start builds into a roasted chocolate, coffee, hop bittered finish. While the flavour is bold the overall feel is still quite light and easy to drink. This beer is a BC take on a British style ale, it is enjoyable, flavourful and leaves the tongue curious for more. The Spinnakers Cascadia Dark Ale is an excellent beer worth fighting for in the world of small BC breweries.
