Canadian Band Beer – Townsite Brewing Inc – Said The Ale Belgian Pale Ale Review

As a part of the CBC Radio 3 Canadian Band Beer series Townsite Brewing Inc along side BC band sensation Said the Whale has released the Said The Ale. This Belgian Pale Ale pours an amber-copper colour with a finger and a half of glass lacing head. The Said The Ale smells of rich Belgian malts, caramel sweetness and a touch of piney northwest hops. The taste is mellow starting off with a Belgian style malt and a floral notes and a wheatiness to the body. A caramel sweetness also comes into the flavour early on before mellowing and allowing the hop bitterness to come through at the end. The finish comes in quite dry with a mid-hopped, pine flavour. Overall the Said The Ale takes what we all love in a Belgian Ale plus the hop bitterness from a Pacific Northwest style Pale Ale. The flavours are complex and enjoyable making for a very drinkable and great tasting ale.

Said The Whale’s latest release is called “I Love You”. We can only assume that the title is referring to the Said The Ale by Townsite Brewing.
