3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft pint at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a finger of creamy tan head that lasts. The aroma and flavor are faint - nuts, toasted malts, earth, mild chocolate, some leaves and a hint of brown sugar. But those emerge only after warming and not in a big way. Light-medium bodied, with modest carbonation and a smooth, toasty mouthfeel. Not much to it.

Very much a like a Newcastle but a little more bitter and sharp. Still refreshing and pleasurable experience

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the bewpub. IBU merely 15. Reddish brown coloured body with a creamed head a la nitro. The taste is nitro, creamy but little tastes: a ittle tabacco, and off tastes. Sweet malty aroma.

Par of the sampler tray at the brewhouse. Light brown in colour. Nice malt flavor. Just the right amount of hops.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Floral and sweet in the nose with some toasted malts notable. Clear mahogany brown body is topped by a generous, fine bubbled off-white head that lasts well and laces nicely. Toasted malts are apparent with some roasty bitterness in the finish. Flavour profile seems a bit one dimensional and simple. Medium body with soft creamy nitro texture. Sampled on tap at the brewpub.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at the Whistler Brewhouse over lunch on 03/18/2011. Colour: Brown, expectadly, with gorgeous creamy brown head. Nose: sweet malt with a roasted background and also a lingering soapy-flowery presence that is by no means burdening. Taste: light sweet, medium bitter, light sour. Gentle roast, more soap, light roast coffee with fresh cream. Full of character but not the least bit heavy or over-bearing. Delciously creamy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at Whistler brewpub. Pours a clear chestnut brown with ample cream head. Aroma is very Burton on Trent with caramel notes. Taste has all the hallmarks of a Newcastle brown, the caramel, brackish water, medium long finish. It’s very good for the style but ultimately not very adventurous in the bigger picture. Good though all things considered.
