Northumberland Ale

Church-Key Brewing Co

Canada

Often just referred to as Church-Key, or even Church-Key Cream Ale, this beer comes from a tiny micro brewery that's housed in an old Methodist church in Campbellford, Ontario. It can be very hard to find, but being crisp and light with a dry finish, this beer is worth looking for. Not at all bland, with some real good flavour. Kind of a cirtus tasting finish. Tastes good enough drink slowly and enjoy. But also easy drinking if you want to drink it quickly to quench a thirst. If I had beer like this around all summer, I don't know if I'd drink lagers at all. Well, maybe I'm just saying that.
