*One-off release for 2006 Canadian Federal Election - Conservative Party* This American-style lager has been popular in Western Canada for years but has had trouble gaining acceptance in Ontario. Made with American Willamette hops (a less volatile variety) and barley from Western Canada, Old Tory Lager is trying desperately to become the beer of choice. Best served ice-cold, this pale, colourless beer goes best with any family cooking. There are no hidden ingredients in this beer!

    One of four bombers purchased in the "politics-pack" where Trafalgar is relabeling their standard beers for each party/leader running in the 2006 elelction....vote with your mouth...vote often...The Harbour gold was labeled" Old Tory lager". Poured a crystal clear light gold into the flute...small white cap diminished quickly. Minimal lacing, moderate carbonation. Aromas very faint....some sweet grainy breadiness and very light floral hopping...no Pilsner "skunk" from this fuzzy bunny. Odd mouthfeel for a Pils; slick and peppery. Malt up front... grainy but almost drowned out by carbonation peppering the palate....later this mellows as the gas comes out of the beer and we get a mellow grainy-bready maltiness that seems to over-power the muted golding hops ( these are not Saaz) until the finish...slightly dry quick finish, light biscuit aftertaste. Not a very good rendition of a Plisner but a fair enough drinkable all-malt lager. However nothing stands out to distinguish this one from the 300 brands of lager on the domestic market

    Poured flat (typical of Trafalgar, they really gotta work on their carbonation technique) Average appearance equally average smell. I could taste a dortmunder style flavouring off the first few sips which was a nice surprise, unfortuantely it didnt last. The taste - like its mouthfeel - became flat and dull. The beer was to some degree refreshing but only for its lack of real character or flavour. For this style Id prefer a more developed old country Euro lager.
