I’ve had a few beers from Parallel 49, and they all been quite good (Old Boy Ale ESB, Salty Scot Caramel Scotch Ale) so I am hoping for a repeat performance in Todays Beermas treat.

The Toques of Hazzard packs a punch at 9.2% alc.vol in a 650ml bottle, you might want to enlist some help.  I unfortunately have none Today so I’ll do what I can within reason. ;)

The beer pours a bit like a hefeweizen but lighter – about 2 thumbs worth of thick pillowy head and fair carbonation.

The aroma is very bitter and fruity – specifically grapefruit which I imagine is coming from the hops.

Let’s taste.  For a beer that’s 9.2% its very smooth – the grapefruit is there but its not as aggressive as some IPA’s.  It’s quite a sophisticated beer really – just the right amount of malt to hops, it goes down smooth and yet doesn’t sacrifice flavour.

The audio portion of the review doesn’t tell the full story.  I spent the entire evening sipping this beer and it was delicious.  I recommend this beer as a re-buy and hope to see it on the shelves of the liquor store in the future.

Cheers – see you on Beermas Day 07. ;)

  • Man, Steve, you are so good at this :) I suspect that the grapefruit flavour you encountered negated the need for some lemon. Happy New year to you and yours :) ~~ PS – this was for Day 06 Touques of Hazzard
