Sammy (8725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2011
Brown ales are mostly not an exciting category, and this one on-tap at the brewery is no exception. It was however beter than average for the style because of its rich malt and creamy mouthfeel. Too sweet. Light brown colour with creamy head. It looks like its on nitro, which it is not.
