It was through an industry friend that I was introduced to Old Tomorrow Beer and their original Canadian Pale Ale when it came out, and I must admit that I was a fan from the beginning. So when I heard that they had a new addition to the family with Monty’s Golden Rye Ale, I of course had to check it out for myself.
This silky smooth beer, to the sight is a deep caramel with golden tones, to the taste has notes of honey, vanilla, spied rye and of course caramel, the finish, refreshing, sweet and quite delicious.
660 mL bottle
Made in:Ontario, Canada
By:Old Tomorrow Ltd.
Style:Medium & Spicy
Notes: Vanilla, Caramel, Honey
Not only is this a great beer, but the inspiration for it came from gold medal winner and Amazing Race Canada host Jon Montgomery, which explains why it’s called “Monty’s” Ale and really, if a gold medal winner loves it, it’s good enough for me.
Monty’s Golden Rye Ale pairs well with fish, smoked and spice meats, and apparently is a “real treat” over vanilla ice cream, which now I’m going to have to try and report back about. It’s a hard job but someone’s got to do it.
So the next time you are looking to try something new in the world of craft beers, grab a bottle and enjoy, and as always feel free to share your thoughts @weraddicted and @TheMaleAddict.
