Recently, I was in Ontario, Canada and I wanted to to try as many local beers as I could while I was in this central Canadian province. One of the beers I selected was Collingwood, Ontario's Downhill Pale Ale.
The beer's logo has pine trees beneath a mountain ski slope. It looked very Canadian to me, so I thought, what the hell, let's give this one a taste. You know what? I'm glad I did. Downhill Pale Ale had a great full flavour of malt that leaves a pleasant but bitter aftertaste. It was a cloudy amber brown colour that formed a nice head when poured. The head eventually reduced to a consistent 1/4" thick medium bubbled layer while I consumed the glass.
The Collingwood Brewery which makes this beer is a true craft brewer. They built this small local brewery from the ground up and they are spreading throughout Ontario.
I'm not sure if you can get his beer outside of Ontario, Canada but if you are ever in the province, you have to try this Canadian pale ale. It's pretty damn good, and I give it four burps.
Drinking the world.
One beer at a time.
