2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours with a little head and some lacing and reddish brown. Tastes of honey and grain. Light on the hopes or malt. Hard to taste the "English Style". Not "orrible" but not a stand-out

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
No head and a heavily carbonated light copper body. Lots of roasted malt on the nose, some breadiness, nothing exciting. Flavour is a metallic sweet malt with some fake smoke. An Englishman would be horrified by this kind of ale, and me as a Canadian am just hugely disappointed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
341ml bottle from Beer Store in Toronto. This beer is exactly what it says it is: an English style mild ale. A rich body that goes down easily, with very little bitterness. Serve at 10 - 15 degrees C, of course. Don’t be fooled by the name "Warthog" ... it’s not an aggressive ale - as the commercial description explains, it is designed to quench the thirst of an English big game hunter on an African safari!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Smith. Pours a clear amber gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread and straw supported by a touch of earthiness. Flavor has notes of grain and bread, but is a bit thin.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear pale amber with one finger of loose off-white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (2/5) Nose is light malt, mild citrus and grassy. (5/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter. (5/10) Light to medium bodied, prickly to moderate carbonation, off-dry crisp finish. (3/5)
Quite boring. Mild, sure, and no real negatives, but really quite boring. (10/20)

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly hazed yellow-amber with a small, off-white head.
Caramel, lightly woody aroma.
Flavour is caramel malt, bread...slightly lactic, with a weak leafy bitter.
Just barely ok...very watery...misses the style by a wide margin.

Can. Lightly lactic caramel malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet toffee malt and lightly bitter herbal flavor. Watery palate. I get not calling this a mild ale but I thought one of the requirements of being a brown ale was that it should be brown.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Gourmet Bistro Toronto. Pours a clear, caramel/copper with a thin, off white head that stick to the glass. Aroma has nice notes of caramel, toffee, slight fruit esters, and traditional hops. Taste is balanced. Caramel, toffee, bread, and a short aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and satisfying in the mouth. Overall pretty good for the style. Mild flavours of caramel, bread, and toffee.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
473 ml can purchased singly from Sobeys Liquor and served in a small footed pilsner glass. Pours a clear, light amber, with light carbonation and an off-white cap that quickly shrinks, leaving no lace. Aroma is light malt, cereal grains, and light citrus; flavor is very faint malt, cereals, and only hints of hoppiness, with perhaps a breath of caramel. Body and mouthfeel are pleasant enough, despite the faint flavors. Refreshing but uneventful; a mild ale indeed. I guess I need to be quenching my thirst with Rudyard Kipling on the Serengeti plains, monitoring the wildebeest, in service of King and Empire, to get the fullest effect.
