PictureThere absolutely MUST be some kind of reference that inspired the name of this beer. The Sawdust City guys always have some double meaning to their names and I must simply not be getting it. On their website they mention it is a collaboration with the band: I, the Mountain.

I, the Mountain and the Leprechaun Flute is an incredibly named dark red ale. Except a strong malt profile and maybe a little bit of gold!

Sadly this beer is not available at the LCBO but you can find it at fine craft beer bars across the city.

Appearance: Dark red. Ruby. Blooooood. Thick head that stays.
Aroma: Tropical fruits. Mango and blood orange. Little bit of lime.
Taste: More bitter than I expected. Dry mango and apricot. Bit of apple skin.
Aftertaste: Short, dry and bitter.
Overall: Fluty.
