Well, it's been ages since I've updated, but summer happened. I'm sure any Ontario readers are enjoying the usually summer meltdown, but here in Alberta it's been unseasonably hot. Been spending a lot of time on the deck, using the new bbq, and just generally chillin'. Beer consupmtion has not slowed down, but has for the most part, been in the pale lager realm. Some of those include Cheetah Lager, Lech Premium, Gallo, Kokanee, Nik Gold. I can't say any of those were really mindblowing, but they did serve as decent thirst quenchers, and most rated in the mid 2 range. I've been told Jever is now availble in Alberta, so I'm looking forward to trying that one, it's been on my radar for a while. And as a plus, it's canned, so danger of that green bottled light struck flavour. It's funny just how popular canned beer is in this province, a total flip from Ontario where everyone buys longneck bottles. Here it's cans. Some mainstram domestic stuff is even harder to find in bottles. It's also interesting to see the various give-aways that come with a 24 pack of beer here, flip flops, t-shirts, cooler bags, glassware and sometimes even a free can or bottle.
Well that's about it for this short and sweet update. Cheers to you all.
