Profile

Smell

The grain malt is lively and delicious smelling. This takes up most of the room on the nose, but you do get a little touch of dry apple juice.

Taste

Very subtle flavour on this beer, most of what you’re going to get initially is the slight hint of toasted malt but once you get past that and let it sink in you’ll catch the hops. They’re slightly grassy and floral, but very mild. The flavours come together to form a well-balanced but mild lager taste. The body is slightly dry and the finish leaves behind more of the grassy hops.

Pairing

Perfect for a thin-crust pizza with easy sauce and cheese, nothing too heavy.

Sight

Pours a light gold colour with a clear body and medium carbonation. A head of sticky foam with generous lacing rests on top of the pour.

Description

Kurtis Sheldon and Chris Charron both have driver’s licenses. They also both make beer for a living. The duo started up Slow Hand Beer Company in 2017, primarily working on a rotating slate of lagers ever since. There was a time when they only worked on Lagers, but they’ve slowly expanded their offering over the past few years. The creation of the brewery was based on the desire to make better Lagers for the good people of British Columbia to drink. Now with almost two dozen versions having come out of their brains and into cans for the thirsty to enjoy, they continue the pilgrimage to Lager while opening themselves up to new adventures. The duo rely on European styles brewed with West Coast savvy. Most of their beers can be considered session beers. The Slow Hand is a German-style pilsner with a subtle flavour profile and crisp, refreshing body. The flavours are hiding and you’ll need to really savour this beer to get everything out of it. Serves well at 8°C and can stay in the cooler for three months.
