La Chouffe

Their website says, "La Chouffe is an unfiltered blonde beer, which is re-fermented in the bottle as well as in the keg. It is pleasantly fruity, spiced with coriander, and with a light hop taste."

The Beerman Sez: "It's a nice, strong, Belgian blonde with citrus flavor and some hop crispness."

This is a great beer to drink while watching the sun set on a late summer day. This is The Beerman's Beer of the Month for August, 2013.
We're not quite ready for Oktoberfest yet.

Labatt 50

A nice smooth ale with good balance between dry and fruity. It's not spectacular but it isn't too shabby. It reminds the Beerman of a lighter version of Genny's old 12 Horse.

Labatt Blue

It's a typical macro made to sell mass quantities to the great unwashed hordes. It tastes okay but they make better beers. The Beerman sez if you're in the Great White North you should check oot their smaller labels, eh?

John Labatt Classic

First introduced in 1983, Labatt uses Krausen-brewing to craft this all malt lager. This lager can compete with many of the better micros in the Canadian market. The Beerman still usually buys beers from smaller brewers but this isn't bad.

Labatt Ice

This is the world's first ice brewed beer. The beer is partially frozen and the ice crystals are scraped off, leaving a thicker, richer, stronger beer with more flavour (that's flavor if you drink it in The States, eh). The Beerman sez that this is probably the best Ice Beer.

Strength: 7.1%

Labatt Maximum Ice

A stronger version of Labatt Ice that the Beerman believes is only available in The Great White North. It has a lot of flavour (eh?) but the Beerman sees a lot of serious hosers carrying it out of the beer store for their weekend benders. The Beerman sez everyone should try this beer once. Once.

Drink a beer; save a wolf Rating: 9.4 out of 10
Brewery: Lancaster
Strength: 8%

Lancaster Winter Warmer

A strong olde ale that is a perfect driveway shovelling beer. It's malty with a crisp hop finish. They use 2 Row Barley, Chocolate, and Camel malts with Cascade and Goldings hops. And they donate to wolf rescue so have two or three to save more wolves.

Best served with: A strong North wind in your face and a shovel nearby so you can look busy if you notice anyone watching you "work."

Strength: Not very

Lazy Mutt Farmhouse Ale

This beer comes in a "si8" pack; which has eight beers instead of six. This leaves seven sitting around instead of five. The Beerman really wanted to like this beer but it has no texture and the only flavor is a light, industrial tasting lemon. It's drinkable and there are worse beers but this certainly isn't good.

Best served with: A disguise.

Left hand Oktoberfest

They use Munich and Pilsner for malts, CTZ and Hallertau Mittelfrüh hops.

It's a malty but clean tasting Marzen. The Beerman gave it an 8.5ish at first but he's grown to like it more. Maybe it's the way-cool critter on the label. Anyways, I digest, it's a really beer great for early fall and it's won The Beerman's widely sought-after Beer of the Month Award for September 2015.

Best served with: Standard fall grub

Liopard Oir

They use Belgian Pilsner, German Pilsner, Vienna, Rye, Oats, Wheat & Corn for malts, Golding hops, and a French-Belgian yeast blend.

Lavery says, "A beer for the ladies, crazies and connoisseurs. A floral, hoppy and fruity Belgian/French-style saison. Saisons are completely undescribable so we won't even try. Our interpretation has five types of grain, nobel hops and three different strains of yeast! The yeast is the star of this show - fruity, spicy, fragrant, alluring and simply delicious. This beer ends dry and crisp. We bottle condition with Brettanomyces Clausenii, a wild yeast that adds fruity, tart and mildly funky aromas and flavors to ale. This beer is great young but will change considerably with time. Named Liopard oir, Irish for 'gold leopard', which appears on the Lavery Family crest." The Beerman Sez, "That works for me."

It won a gold at the 2013 Great American Beer Fest and now it's won The Beerman's coveted Beer of the Month Award for May 2015.

Lord Chesterfield Ale

A fairly crisp ale with nice texture. But from a bottle it often tastes a little "green." The Beerman defines green's taste as kind of pre-skunky. This beer is much better on tap than it is in bottles if you can find it.

Unimpressive pale yellow color with an okay head that fades to a lacing after a few minutes but looks can be deceiving. This ale has enough flavor and balance to be quite good. The flavor is slightly fruity and malty with enough bitterness from the hops to be crisp. Mikey likes it.
