21st Century Champagne Ale (Amber Ale,  12%) - (Seasonal - 1999/2000) Even the check-out counter lady at the liquor store was hyping this one - the alcohol strength gets attention. Packaged to convey the impression of a champagne bottle, albeit with cheesy glossy label and plastic cork. A well-aged, highly carbonated, clear bronze-coloured barley-wine. The nose is actually reminiscent of champagne, or at least white wine, with its alcohol fruitiness. Real warming mouthfeel, but remarkably smooth considering the alcohol content. Eminently drinkable and very suitable substitute for champagne on whatever milestone you may be celebrating. I salute the lady at the check-out counter for her excellent taste.   12/12/1999
