Powell Street Craft Brewery – Old Jalopy Pale Ale
Powell St. Brewery is the new kid on the block for BC breweries. Calling the new “Brewery District” of East Vancouver home the Old Jalopy is a Pale Ale in their fresh lineup. The bottle is adorned with a beautiful label that is both classy and artistic. The beer is a cloudy, amber colour with two fingers of head. The head settles at a moderate pace leaving a thick film on the glass. Smelling this beer it has notes of florality and citrus that run along side a piney, northwest style hop. A mid-bitter hop is paired with a citrus flavour that contrasts quite nicely in a smooth and well balanced beer. A slightly smoked finish balances with the hop bitterness to give another level of uniqueness to the flavour profile. Overall this is a nice tasting pale ale that plays tribute to traditional brewing techniques. It is easy to drink and tastes great; if you can make your way down to the brewery pick up a bottle and you won’t be disappointed.
