JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Clear pale amber beer with a thin white head. Aroma is of soft allspice, clove and a touch of munich malt aroma. Flavour is a bit thin, with light pale malt, a kiss of crystal and even some crackey maris otter maltiness. Fairly understated spiciness but with a light spicy hoppiness and a soft dryness. Slightly herbal... it’s okay, but fairly understated. Quite British tasting. Simple but nice.

On tap at Captain Lawrence during the release of Smoke from the Oak Apple Brandy Barrel. Pours a clear orange amber with a thin white head. Smells of warmed pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Medium bodied and spicy, some biscuit notes. Light spicy finish with a dry bitterness. Blended this one for one with the smoked porter… excellent and highly recommended.
