A good average beer. Pours clean amber brown. Light bodied, smells of hay and mild alcohol. Tastes better than most large scale beers.

The yeast that Big Rock uses has a dominating character, and you get the impression that they use the same malts and same hops for all their beers. In others words, if you’ve had one, you’ve had them all.

On tap I think in Earl’s, Banff.
A: creamy, malts, caramel
Ap: Amber, small, creamy tan head which left lacings on the side of the glass.
T: Caramel, malts, a bit grainy, something like peche, light toast/burnt.
P: long malty, soft round mouthfeel. Full malty taste.
In contrast to others here, I liked this beer.

Color: attractive deep copper.
Aroma: sweet malt aroma.
Taste: sweet, bread-like malt. Not much hops.
A fairly typical brow ale. Not bad, but fairly simple and one dimensional.

On tap. Caramel malt with a touch of fruit. Light bodied and pretty unremarkable. Dry finish. Not a fan.

Good old standby back home. Not the best but decent enough to last the evening. Brown pour with a medium head, minimal retention. predominately malt, toffee, some nuts, bit of roasted malt. Medium body, easy drinking.

Highly drinkable post grass cutting beer. Not incredible, but more than adequate.

Sort of a watery looking ruddy brown clay colour. Quite a bit better than the Grasshopper Wheat, this ale is mediocre tasting and is still definitely lacking a lot of qualities that would make it great. Smells is sweet earthy must with some caramel. Tastes of roasted caramelised almonds, roasted malt, dark bread, vanilla and some very passive floral hops. Thin, unexceptional body. Things just didn’t come together on this one.

Can. Taste of nuts and toffee, and some roasted malt. Has a medium body with lower carbonation, and a slick mouth feel. Somewhat of a strange syrup aftertaste not bad, but not good either. Just an okay beer.

Bouteille de 341 ml achetée au Beer Store de Hawkesbury. Dégustée le 9 septembre 2003. Bière rousse limpide. Mousse assez, col moyen assez compact, durable. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de fruits et de céréales grillées. Très douce, assez sucrée, assez amère en finale.
