A rich and full bodied ale brewed in the southern English brown ale style. English specialty malts and hops are used in the brewing process to make a smooth drinking pint to savor a long day of skiing on the hills!

Lagerboy (1379) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2014
Tasting Flight at The Brewhouse, Sample # 4: Clear medium copper, lasting fine tan nitro foam mutes the sweet malt aroma. Sweeter medium roast, mild caramel, faint bitterness, English hops. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, lightly hopped. Smooth and nitro soft. NFL (Not For Lagerboys) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Whistler Brewhouse. Just an average brown ale... Nothing special...

phaleslu (6951) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2012
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

Sammy (9067) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
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.

Draft from sampler at the Brewhouse at $15.75CAD for six 6-ounce samples. One of the regular beers, very good!

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

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2011
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.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
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.

manuchampions (1238) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
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.
