Craft Beer Advent Calendar: December 6th

Royal City Brewing Co. – Smoked Honey

  • Guelph, Ontario
  • 5.5% ABV
  • 25 IBUs
  • Style: Hybrid Brown Ale
  • Available: The Brewery, LCBO

This was our very first taste of Royal City Brewing. It’s a brewery on our list for an actual brewtrip in the new year. Finding this one in the LCBO was a nice surprise!

Royal City delivers a really enjoyable beer with their Smoked Honey! The smokiness comes at you immediately in both aroma and taste. What’s particularly enjoyable is how the smoke flavour really holds on in your mouth throughout. Thankfully, the smokiness isn’t overpowering. There are also really nice malt tones.

This is also a thinner beer without too much sweetness, which means it’s very drinkable.

If this is any indication of what else Royal City has is store for us, the brewtrip in 2016 is going to be great!
