JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2012
500 ml bottle that I swiped from the OBAs. Deep amber brown pour with a thin white head. The aroma has light toast and toffee along with a bit of soft cocoa. Light bodied with a sort of cleanness and lightness that reminds me of some mild ales I’ve had before. Sort of a herbal/toasted component. A little bit of lightly woody hoppiness. Decent really - a highly quaffable brew.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
2013-06-30. Dark brown body, small tan head fades. 3+ Flavour has a fair bit of coffee like roast, sweet dark malt middle. Aroma has a dilute coffee like character, dry roast malt over sweeter malt base, dusty malt accents. Smooth avetage plus to medium bodied palate has low carbonation. Okay, fairly simple. Bottle from the LCBO

DuffMan (6865) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle, purchased from the brewery as part of a 4-pack of historic Canadian beers. Nut brown body, beige head. Quite a roasty profile for a brown ale, earthy and tannic, but noticeably thin and watery. Not bad, but not one I’d return to (this seems to be a recurring theme with this brewery).

blankboy (6139) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle [500ml]. Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size diminishing bubbly off-white head. Slightly mild aroma of lightly roasted malt, nuts, a hint of coffee and some mild fruit. Mild flavour of cocoa, toasted malt, nuts, a hint of coffee and some fruit. Average bodied. Pretty good, nothing mind-blowing, but an enjoyable beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
