Day 2 of 3 in Whistler and my last night. After a fine day of strategizing in a windowless conference room, we were ready to hit the town and we did it in style. Dinner at Teppan Village and drinks at Citta’s again with a stop by some candy store for a quick fix along the way. I had some Stella Artois at Teppan Village, took a picture with my phone, but the damn thing is now corrupt and I lost to the world, so I am going to cover my second Canada beer of the trip, Russell Cream Ale.
I was very excited to purchase the commemorative cup from Citta’s that came filled with a wonderful alcoholic beverage, but I was dissappointed when it touched my lips. 😦
While Russell Crem Ale claims to have won some Canadian beer award last year, it won’t be winning anything from me. It was mediocre at best and left me feeling like I had just had a new mixed drink that was half amber and half water. I really wanted to like this beer, too… it has a great name that speaks of smoothness and richness with enough flavor to count, but it falls way, way short of this.
