3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of light beige head that settles to reveal some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with hints of chocolate and citrus. Taste is a light roasted grain and citrus hop bitterness balanced nicely with a chocolate malty sweetness. A pretty well done brown ale that I recommend others to try it.

Draught at CBC.
Malty, nutty but mainly too hoppy than I prefere a brown ale to be.

On tap at Malthouse. Pours brown, tan head. Aroma has a prominent lemony hop character with nice toasty malt & some dark fruits.
A nice toasty malt flavour up front with a bracing bitterness following.
A great americanish brown ale, with a NZ hop twist.

Pint at Hashigo Zake at the end of a long night. But still tickled the taste buds nicely. Looks great, and those coffee and nutty flavours come out nicely. The type of beer you want to pull out a rigger of at home and enjoy all day/night.

An interesting take on a brown ale. I found the hops character a little out of favour with malt character... But it is an interesting take nonetheless... Good job.

Bottle at CP&K thanks to madmitch76. It pours a mahogany colour with low/moderate carbonation and a thin beige head. The nose is full of dark fruits; raisins, dates, prunes and roasted malt. The taste is caramel, smokey, slightly citrus, burnt sugar, liquorice, oak and has light bitter finish. It’s not bad, but not overly exciting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 500 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a slightly hazy deep brown color with a small, foamy, light tan head. The nose has slightly floral hops, dark nuts, and a little dusty yeast. There is lots of carbonation in this brew. The flavor has nutty notes with a large hop blast. There is a good bit of bitterness in this brew. Light to medium body with high carbonation and a dry, bitter finish. I tend to enjoy British browns and this one leans more towards the hoppy side. Still, it was worth drinking.
