BC Beer – Mt Begbie Nasty Habit

April 7, 2010

It was the label that made this catch my attention. A red-legged satyr leaning against a tree with jumping goat in the background and a crescent moon and stars going in to an open door. I don’t understand it at all. I do like it. When I read the label I was surprised to find it was from Mt. Begbie. I’m used to the historical pictures on their bottles.  There have been a few changes from them lately.  Their, very well done, flagship beer, High Country Kolsch, is now available in cans; and this beer is relatively new for them being released sometime late last year.

As I pop the top the room is filled with a sweet, sticky, spicy, herbacious aroma. My glass is greeted by that familiar light copper and clingy head that so many IPAs are guilty of. Upon supping my mouth is filled with an explosion of tropical fruit flavours. Mango, pineapples, guava, grapefruit, orange, they’re all there. A round, but very sweet, caramel backs them up. Overall I think this beer would benefit from more hops to balanced the sweetness and give it a bit more punch and help make it truly stand out from all the other IPAs in BC.

That being said, I still like this beer. I’ve had a few of them already. It’s something different to drink between my Red Racer IPAs.
