August 4 – Day 216

International Beer Day ! Hooray! Any holiday to do with beer is welcome in my blog!

To celebrate, I decided to try a new and really intriguing beer I saw at the NLC by SpinDrift Brewing company – Blueberry Chai Pilsner

Now we alllllll know it could only be a true pilsner if it was made in Pilsen, Czech Republic, known for it’s soft water, so this guy from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia was never going to be authentic.

The Blueberry Chai part was what captivated me.
When I poured it, it looked the part. When I tasted it, however, it tasted like a plain old lager. Nothing blueberry or chai about it.

It was fine. And Chai is a flavour probably best left for a heavier beer like a stout or port, mayhaps?
