Can from the LCBO. Deep clear mahogany with a one finger fluffy khaki head that fades slowly and laces well. Nose is light caramel, roasted nuts and chocolate. Light sweet toffee up front with light bitter chocolate, coffee and nut middle and a short finish. Mouth is a bit thin with average carbonation. Decent enough brown ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473ml can. Pours a clear, deep amber/caramel with a one finger, off white head that laces. Aroma has smooth roasted notes with a bit of caramel, dark fruits, and a hint of fruity esters. Taste is balanced. A blend of soft roasted malts, caramel, and a bit of coffee at the end. Low-medium body with a medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a bit of a dry finish. Overall an ok brown. A bit light on flavour.

Can bought at the Amsterdam Brewery in Toronto. Overall it tastes like a good dark lager. Refreshing, a bit watery. Medium roasted malt, some dark chocolate. Good but nothing really special.
