Grasshopper

Big Rock Brewery

Canada

I was wary of this beer for a while. During my early college years in Saskatchewan this was one of those party beers where guys would talk about drinking 15 in one night and how they were pissed out of their tree. I always figured that it's either really watered down, or it tastes bad like a lot of the other beers people drink at college parties. So for all these years I'd stayed away. It turns out Grasshopper is a good beer. This is a unique wheat ale. It's finley hopped and has a somewhat fruity taste to it that makes it an excellent warm weather beer. It goes down crsip and smooth. Has an excellent finish as well. It'd be easy to down several of these in one sitting. This is an excellent alternative to a lager.
