True North Ale Company launched in 2017 on Boston's North Shore, the rustic town of Ipswich. Reflecting the heritage of the small town, built on a community of fisherman and seaman, their name is an encapsulation of the town’s spirit. A no nonsense place where great beer is exactly what hard working people need. Built by the father and son team of Gary and Jake Rogers, True North took traditional know-how and combined it with cutting edge brewing equipment and quality customer service in their taproom. Their dual-brewing setup lets them put out big numbers on their fan favourite beers but also throw out some seasonal experiments. The Holy Schnitt is a Helles Lager, based on the classic German style that’s light in the body, smooth on the palate but with a touch of character. Serves well at 8°C and can cellar for up to six months.


Pours a light golden colour with a clear body and low carbonation. Only a thin, wispy head of foam pours from the can.


A very bready aroma that will remind you of a schnitzel sandwich and an interesting but tricky to identify combination of spices.


A fairly mild flavour that starts off with grain but shifts down almost immediately into a toasted bread and earthy flavour. There’s a touch of salinity and pepper, but the spices that were teased in the aroma aren’t to be found. A light, crisp body that’s easy to drink and a snappy finish. This is definitely a solid, easy drinking patio beer that will make for a great summer addition.


Anything off the pub menu will do well with this beer, especially the burger.
