This beer is very refreshing, with a lingering but pleasant aftertaste. No negative side effects. When I originally bought this beer I thought the label had two goblins on it until later I put two and two together to realize that the name correlated with the design ;)

Nice beer. Good flavour but not overpowering. Perfect with nachos watching the hockey game.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2005 Another great beer from Big Rock! I found this cream ale to have a light & sweet aftertaste...but don’t get me wrong...this isn’t a light beer. The flavor stares you down just like the red eyed warthog on the label!

A bit light-colored and bodied for a brown ale. Caramel-colored with a white, thin head. It may have a few nutty scents, but they’re faint. It’s more like an ale, as Newcastle Brown (a brown ale that defines the genre for me) is considerably maltier and thicker. This beer is Newcastle "lite". However, for what it is, a simple ale, it’s pleasant and quaffable.

One of the beers i like more than most. I liked the flavor alot, mild hops and a good bite. Struck a nerve with me somehow I think.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2005 I found this beer to have a bold taste. Very similar to Big Rock Tradition ale.

Nice brown color, incredably smooth. I was quite impressed because this is a beer that I could drink alot of if I was thirsty and it doesn’t lose much. Good carbonation, nice taste, but the head was very thin, that’s the 4 for appearance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2003 Aroma was nutty, almost walnut-like with subtle alcohol undertones, Appearance differs from most if not all brown ales I have gotten my hands on, this was almost red and very transparent, I hope such transparency is not a foreshadowing of its flavor...starts out slightly nutty...I'd say this brew is very similar to newcastle or double maxim, light, nutty and refreshing...A tad bit more carbonation than it's English cousins but just as good IMO

Pours a amber colour with a white head that didn't last too long even after a vigorous pour.
Heavy malt scents along with honey doughy yeast notes. Smooth initial sip. Very nice slightly toasted malt flavour with a little sweetness. The finish was a little doughy with some more bread flavours. Flavour disappeared quickly though unfortunatly.
