Highlander Brew Co. – Lion Grass Beer

April 9th, 2014 by in Beer Reviews

Well back for another review from the Real Canadian Beer Festival.  I think I have 1 or 2 more. Going through the photos during the day, seeing which ones were good that we took photos of.



This review is from a beer based out of northern Ontario, from Highlander Brew Company.  Highlander Brew Co. is based out of South River, way up near Algonquin Park, and began its operations in 2009, so it is a fairly new brewery.  Personally I have not been able to locate their beer close to home here, but was assured that it would be available.  


The beer being reviewed is called Lion Grass.  If you guess that the name came from Dandelions and Lemon Grass congratulations, and how in the heck did you figure that out????  Seriously??  Anyways from talking to people at the booth they use Dandelions and lemon grass during the brewing process to give that hint of both ingredients. 


This beer would be a perfect beer for after a ride on a hot day, as it is lighter and crisper.  The alcohol percentage is around 5.7 so alcohol wise it’s not a light beer, but it has the appearance and the taste of a lighter beer.  There was no real strong hop taste or bitter taste.  This is bias as my taste buds may be different than others, but try the beer out.


The beer is a lighter colour, and when poured into a glass there is a nice light head on it.  When drinking it, it just went right down…. It probably helped that it came in 4 ounce cups…


At the end of the day, I would recommend this beer for sure, and definitely go out and try this beer or others from Highlander Beer company!


Rating: 4.30 out of 5


Was the Beer hoppy?  Not really hoppy at all, but really good flavour.

Would you recommend this beer to a friend?  Yes for sure, 100 %, definitely.

Who holds the record for drinking 1 Litre of beer, and in what time?  A Czech man, Jan Honza Zampa, and it only took 4.11 seconds.  Yup, that’s a fast chug….

Would you buy a case of this beer?  I would, as soon as I can find it….
