Oskar BluesOld Chub"It's like Sputnik"
BREWERY: OSKAR BLUES
STYLE: Scotch Ale
AVAILABLE: Year Round
Old Chubb is a Scottish style ale brewed by Oscar Brother Brewing Co and comes in a 12 ounce can. To me this beer is a little on the darker side and I don’t usually like dark beer ,but this stuff goes down surprisingly well. It has almost a chocolate or coffee aftertaste to it with a nice creamy tan head. It is definitely a rich beer and surprisingly good considering it’s coming out of a can. I’m a bottle connoisseur.
One thing I can say is that you have to be careful with this guy. I tried this out on a smoking hot summer day and I was pleased by how smooth the beer goes down coming from the can. I moved on from cans a long time ago because of the lack of tasty brews coming in them but since I grew up on Canadian canned beer this was amazingly refreshing with its carbonation, which bottled beer doesn’t hold as well. It goes down smooth with just the right bite and at 8% you need to make sure you don’t enjoy it too much or fishing will go right out the window.
