Hermannator (2021) by Vancouver Island Brewing

Phil C. is drinking a Hermannator (2021) by Vancouver Island Brewing at Vancouver Island Brewery

First release of the 2021 edition, at the brewery. Tastes a little lighter in body than usual, less syrupy (perhaps more attenuated?). As such, very drinkable for the ABV. Nice warm finish. The 2019 version wins the taste-off :)

Hermannator (2020) by Vancouver Island Brewing

This was the "problem brew" that was unreleased a year ago. Quite drinkable but a little harsh around the edges. Doesn't look like they've canned this one, so I guess it's draught only.

Taster tray of 2019/20/21 Hermannators at the brewery - this one has smoothed out with age, very nice and warming.

Across the Way by  Herald Street Brew Works

Lots of breweries attempt the strong Irish style of McNally's (hardly ever made now) but this is a good 'un. A "strong red ale" is how it was sold to me.

Fresh Hopped ESB by Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub

Phil C. is drinking a Fresh Hopped ESB by Spinnakers Gastro Brewpub at Untappd at Home

Purchased @ The Strath Liquor store in Victoria, BC. "Fresh Hopped" on the tin made me buy it, but I get a lot of malt in both the aroma and the taste/aftertaste. It's an outstanding ESB, but not for those who want an immediate infusion of hops.
