Beer of the Week: Big Rock Warthog Ale

Beer score: 6.7

Company: Big Rock Brewery

ABV: 4.5
IBU: 16

The Big Rock Brewery of Calgary, Alberta, Canada brews this fine drink. Pours a slightly dark copper color with a thin head. Pretty smooth with just a little honey sweetness as it goes down. There are hints of fruit, maybe citrus, along with some bread-like textures. Not overly strong, so anyone can enjoy it, though there is more than a little darkness in all this mildness. I found this ale makes a pretty good bar beer for bar food ... you know, sliders, wings and the like. Has a slight sour smell in the glass though I did not detect such in the taste on the way down.
