jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2012 2012-07-08. Dark mahogany brown body witha modest beige head. 3+ Flavour is nicely malty, sweet, nutty toasty malt accents. Just enough bitterness to balance it. Mildly nutty toasty malt aroma. Average plus to medium bodied palate. 3+ pretty solid take on the style. 7/4/7/3/15-16 - 3.6 Bottle shared by Radek 2007-12-24. Very dark brown body with a small tan head. (3+) Muted aroma of malt, lightly toasty. Similar flavour with light nutty accents, toasty malt and moderate caramel. Average palate. A quaffable but unremarkable take on the style. 6/3/6+/3/12 - 3.0 Bottle, source not recorded.

Gorbalev (2906) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2007
Bottle Shared with Hogtown Harry and Blankboy, courtesy of blankboy. Dark ruby red, no head. Mild sour, fruity aroma - nosign of nut or brown. Mild malt taste - very very bland at best. Not good, not much else to say.

blankboy (5948) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2007
My bottle (650ml) shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of Mirek. Pours a clear deep ruby with an average size diminishing off-white head. Aroma and flavour of caramel malt with a hint of nuts and toffee. Light to medium bodied. This didn’t do much for me, it’s not bad but it’s average at best.

Clear tea colored with a huge brown head. Sweet malty nose with puffed wheat and mild cocoa. Some white sugar sweetness with burnt grain astringency. Burnt toast, some chocolate, and caramel sweetness. Soft mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Thanks to Secret Santa for the bottle.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2007
Bottle (650ml). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, blankboy’s bottle. Clear bright deep ruby, average off-white head. Vegetal aroma, sweet cheap malt, stale bitterness. Bland taste of light chocolate stale malt, sour cooked vegetables lingering though. Watery body, bitter, pretty ugly aftertaste - not very good at all.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Cannery is a nice Penticton, BC-based brewery and I like supporting them. Not being a big fan of nut brown ales in general, I do like this one. The head is thin, though. The color is like light roast coffee, reddish when held up to the light. It’s moderately-bodied with a thick chicory-like roasted malt flavor. There is enough hops to cut any residual sweetness, which is why I do find this beer nice.

birrart (6) - Kamloops, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2007 does not count
I stumbled onto this little gem when visiting a friend in Calgary at Stampede... I was floored by the tan head, toffee aroma, and nutty finish. This is the first Brown Ale that I can remember drinking from a can... At last, a beer that one can drink on a golf course with flavour! Say NO to Coors Lite, say YES to Naramata Nut Brown...YAHOO!

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2007
Bouteille, courtoisie de Jean-Marc G. De couleur brune cuivrée et transparente. Nez malté de caramel légèrement terreux et aux petites notes rôties, de noisettes, léger de toffee ainsi que des notes de beurre et de houblon herbeux. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture moyennement crémeuse, et aux notes huileuses et aqueuses. Léger goût de chocolat au lait lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût malté de caramel toffee légèrement terreux et rôti (faibles notes de sucre brun), léger de pain et des notes de céréales puis en finale l’on retrouve un moyen goût de noix légèrement asséchante ainsi qu’un léger goût amer de houblon floral aux petites notes herbeuses et des traces de café doux. Post-goût moyen et aux notes sèches, légèrement amer de rôti, de notes café et de houblon floral-herbeux avec un goût de noisettes

probstblueribbon (2853) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2007
650 mL bottle from a BC Liquor Store in Vancouver, served cold in a small tumbler.

App.: Medium-deep copper with a nice foamy light tan head. Good lacing. Aroma: Earthy, dirty nuts (that sounds wrong...), some medium-roasted malts – caramel and toffee, light coffee, a little sweet and woody, Palate: Medium body with fairly soft carbonation. Silky smooth. Flav.: Nice rich malt character, with some nuttiness, coffee, dark bread crust. Has a lightly bitter finish.

Seems like a good Brown Ale.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2007
Thick, malt forward aroma has notes of orange-citrus and plenty of tannins. Caramel and toffee are up front with just a touch of butter. Some earthy and floral notes and a fleeting hint of licorice. Brilliantly clear chestnut brown coloured body is topped by a decent tan head that recedes slowly to cover with nice lacing. Caramel is strong in the flavour but cannot hide a husky graininess. Regardless, the flavour is somewhat simple and quite sweet. Medium light body with overly strong carbonation. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BCLS on Commercial, Feb-07).
