After pioneering maple cream beers in BC with the Draught Dodger Cream Ale (made with real Canadian maple syrup by the way), the Phillips crew dreamt up a brew that would retain a highly-sessionable, malt forward taste profile, but emphasize roasted characteristics . In 2009 Slipstream cruised on to the scene–a precision crafted ale finely tuned for flavour featuring a roasted, nutty body. Enjoy the ride.
Pours a dark copper colour with a soft white head. The nose is slightly nutty. Smooth mouth feel and a sweet brown sugar taste with hints of toasted hazelnuts, complimented by a dry finish.
Slipstream is available year-round in their own 341mL six pack, as well as a permanent member in the Showcase Mixed pack.
