Great Lakes Grassroots

One of my favourite new beers is Great Lakes Brewing Company’s Grassroots Ale, a saison. Although many saisons have a fairly high alcohol content, some up around 8%, Phil Markowski’s book on farmhouse ales notes that, historically, saisons were very refreshing low-alcohol beers. Although Grassroots is a bit “above average” in alcohol at a bit over 6%, it is a very “drinkable” and refreshing brew with tart lemony notes and a reasonably complex herbal character. Try one while it’s still on tap at the Malt House.
