Yukon Holiday met a couple of firsts for me. It was my first ever beer made in the Yukon, and it was my first ever Kölsch style beer.
Hell, I didn't even know what Kölsch style beer was until I looked it up. All I know is I've never had a beer from the Yukon before. It ends up that Kölsch style beers have a moderate bitterness, but fairly prominent hop flavour with a high effervescence but a rounded, stylish character derived from lagering. I felt better after reading this definition because to me, this beer had a very lager like taste.
Not much of a head formed when it was poured and it had a pale gold colour like many lagers. I liked it from the initial taste and the more of it I drank, the better it tasted. Could a drink a bunch of Yukon Holidays? Sure, it was alright. And that my friends is the crux of this beer. It's just alright. I will never turn one down, but I won't actively search it out again.
If you're looking for a Yukon beer to round out a list, try Yukon Holiday. Chances are you'll like but I doubt you'll love it. I give this beer three burps.
Drinking the world.
One beer at a time.
