It was in Bobcaygeon, I saw the constellations
Reveal themselves, one star at time…..
Hey guys its John here from The Intoxicated Review. First off Happy belated Thanksgiving to our American readers. Being Canadian we celebrate Thanksgiving in October. Anyways I’m going to be trying a beer from a brewery that I’ve been wanting to try for a while. The beer is called Dockside and the brewery is Bobcaygeon Brewing Company. For many of you that may not know Bobcaygeon is a small town located about an hour or two North East of Toronto. The community became really famous when the crown jewel of Canadian music The Tragically Hip released a song called….yup you guessed it Bobcaygeon. Give it a good listen on YouTube when you have a chance. You wont be disappointed. Anyways lets get onto the review and as in the past I’m drinking on the go. Cheers!
Bobcaygeon Brewing Company
Dockside pours in a medium to dark red hazy colour. There’s about 2 inches of head which settles down to a nice frothy 1/4″ head which is a nice brownish red. It wants to cling to the glass.
At first sniff you can instantly smell the hops with a little caramel and breadyness to follow. The hops is just right, not to strong or weak, just right.
Just like the aroma you pick up some citrus hops, caramel and some bread hints in it. Everything seems to compliment each other here.
I would have to say this is a medium beer that you can have just sitting back just to relax. Its not very carbonated and its not overly bitter, but its got the right amount of bite in it to want more. Dockside finishes a little dry, so what are you waiting for? Take another drink!
Dockside is a pleasantly good beer. It’s a beer that you can have a few of them and be good to go. When drinking this beer I picture myself outside listening to The Hip and having the smoker going. Anyways, thanks for reading and enjoy the weekend eh!
