Drink: MacLean’s Farmhouse Blonde
Source: MacLean’s Ales Inc., Hanover, Ontario
Size: 473 mL tallboy
A rich straw colour in the pint glass, this ale more closely resembles a lager—think Stella Artois. Heinken, or Corona.
Light malt nose and only small traces of hops pervade the bouquet.
The same is true of the ale’s taste; light-bodied with a clean finish, this beer is unremarkable except for the ease with which one drinks it.
A respectable beer, but it doesn’t quite put Hanover on the map. Try if you’re tired of the aforementioned three multinationals’ brews.
Hoochsavvy Grade: B
