Prairie Baard Golden Ale – Bomber Brewing

By Mike @mikescraftbeer

From Bomber Brewing in East Vancouver in Partnership with Graham DeLaet a PGA TOUR golfer comes the "Prairie Baard Golden Ale" a beer being made for the Blue Collar Prairie Drinkers of Alberta and Saskatchewan (To begin with). The beer pours a golden straw colour with a white head. The aroma consists of grain, wheat, biscuit, citrus and floral hops. The flavour is of bread, grain, wheat, biscuit, citrus, grassy hops and some mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 5%. This is a very sessionable beer and would be a great choice for a nice hot summer day.

Commercial Description: Our Golden Ale is brewed with 70% Saskatchewan Barley and 30% Saskatchewan wheat both of which are malted in Biggar, SK. Unlike most hazy, cloudy wheat beers, Prairie Baard is filtered to crystal clarity and generously hopped at the end of the brew to give it a distinct aroma without imparting a strong bitterness. The wheat gives the beer a tart crisp finish, as well as adding some bright biscuit and cracker like aromas. The hops used are called Falconer's Flight - Seven Seas. Seven Seas refers to it being a blend of seven different "C" hops; Cascade, Columbus, Centennial, Citra, Chinook, Comet and Crystal. These hops bring strong and citrus aromas to this already refreshing and crushable ale.

Graham DeLaet (Wayburn, Saskatchewan) - "Growing up in the Prairies, not much is handed to you. You only get what you've earned. This is a beer for everyone who packs their lunches and goes to work everyday. This is blue-collar craft. A premium beer for those who've earned it".
