BeerAdvent 2013 Day Ten. Pours amber, no head. Nose of caramel, paper. Flavour is paper with lemon tartness, caramel, got more offensive as we went through the bottle, neither of us could finish it. Drainpours get automatic 0.Xs on my rating scale.

Light brown, aroma is sort of herbal,and some grain. Taste is weirdly off, maybe it’s the honey, but there is a weird tartness and it’s not the good kind. Much preferred the porter.

Advent Calendar. Bleah. Nasty. Fails to live up to anything in the description. Has a sour taste up front and a thin finish. Has nothing in common with a brown ale.

It pours out amber but there is no head to speak of and what is there disappears quickly. I got a sniff of citrus but not much else. The taste is nothing special but it does drink well on the palate - medium with an upfront fizz that is not too long.

Sort of sour cherry vibe. Bitter and pretty nasty. Tastes more like Pil than any brown ale I've had.

MunBro (505) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Advent day 10. Aroma is sweet with a touch of honet and malts. Not really any distinctive taste here other than a touch of honey. A very typical beer. Went down very smooth but nothing special.

DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle, day 10 Craft Beer Advent Calendar 2013. More golden amber than brown, with a rapidly fading head. Aroma is sweet, not truly honey, some perfumey berries maybe. Sweet, thin caramel with an awkward tartness. Worst of the calendar so far, worse than the Hurricaine Amber.

Malbers (18) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Pours an amber with thin head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of honey and a weird sulfur like compound reminiscent of a lager...funny cause its an ale. Flavour is lackluster, reminds me of a more flavourful Sleeman’s Honey Brown (fellow Canadians will know)...which may or may not be a good thing.

12oz brown bottle from the Craft Beer Advent Calendar ’13. Deep gold pour, fairly clear, too light for a brown ale. Small white cap that dies out quickly. Nose has some sweetness, a bit of honey and nut and grain in the nose. Taste has mild chocolate notes, grain, light caramel and honey notes. Tastes a bit off, an odd tang in the back end that I did not enjoy.

Reimer96 (1333) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
CBAC day 10. Pours a clear medium brown with almost no head. Aroma of honey, nuts and green apple. Taste is some bready malts, honey maybe slight nut and chocolate but dominated by the green apple off flavor and high carbonation. I feel this is the base to a decent beer but either fermented too high or something got in the fermentation.
