One of the greatest—and most fearless—goaltenders of all time, Johnny Bower is a fitting subject for the first of the NHL Alumni Association’s Signature Series line-up of premium, limited-edition beers.
Released in December 2013.
Lovely reddish amber, auburn hue capped by ivory foam that reveals a complex beer underneath. Aromas include toffee, vanilla, mild coffee, mocha and almond. These initial notes are also accompanied by darker fruits like dates and figs and a wisp of strawberry. The body is equally as complex with toffee, toasted whole wheat and chestnuts leading the way. The flavours are smooth and soft and end with a quick finish and a hint of mocha at the end.
