I love the Tank Ten series by Great Lakes. It’s always a source of high quality unique beers. As they describe it, it’s a tickle trunk for the brewers to experiment with. Though with the sizes of batches required for an LCBO order I have a feeling there isn’t much experimentation other than the beer being outside of the core brands.
Lake Effect is a strong IPA at 7%, which is a style Great Lakes is known for, so you can expect a good punch of hops but well balanced.
You can purchase a can at the LCBO for $3.25 and it sits at 7% ABV.
Appearance: Straw and oranges. Off-white head that fades fast.
Aroma: Tropical fruits. Apricot and mango. Slight caramel.
Taste: More pronounced mango but much more bitter. Earthiness and caremel.
Aftertaste: Dry and short.
Overall: Refreshing and fruity.
