It was a long weekend here in Ontario, Canada, and so it was a perfect time to catch up on some new beers.

While I had some wonderful growlers from the local Nickel Brook brewery (more on these in a future post), I also tried some new, lighter beers (at least, lighter for me).

One of these was Jigger’s Delight, from Mill St. Brewery.

Jiggers Delight

Brewed at their St. John’s brewpub in the far northeast of Canada, this is one of Mill St.’s California Common beers.

As such, it’s brewed in an old-style way of fermenting it warm, and then aging it cold. This gives the beer a very smooth finish.

As you can see from the picture, it’s a lighter beer with an overall orange pour. You can taste some light grain as you drink it, and the head remains decent at all times.

A small hint of bitter stops it from being too light a taste, but overall this is a beer that would be an ideal in-betweener for summer BBQs and lazy afternoons at the cottage.

  • ABV: 5.0
  • IBU: 26
  • Style: California Common
  • Taste: Light, grainy
  • Rating: 3/5

Jigger's Delight is a lighter ale from Mill St. Brewery's Newfoundland brewpub. Here's what The Craft Beer Diaries thought of this California Common.
