Tasting Note: While Sunshine makes great session lagers we are also renowned for our dark ales. Our robust porter is as solid and blue collar as old Mac the bus driver. It is a smooth tasting yet complex dark ale that we have brewed with a patent dark malt to produce strong flavours and added caramel and chocolate malts for sweetness. Columbus and Cascades hops provide a backbone of fine bitterness and a refreshing aroma of summer’s wild citrus oils.
