2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Darby’s, pours a deep dark mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out bready notes, some holiday spices and subtle dark fruitiness. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of holiday spices, especially nutmeg, along with subdued dark fruits and bready malt. Not my thing at all, but the balance and construction is decent. A little high on the carbonation. Meh.

On tap. Pours a dark brown with light head. Aromas of roasted malt, nuts, and dry cardboard. Similar flavors, closer to a nut brown ale. Dry. Nothing to write home about.

On tap at Hops in New West. Beautiful dark ruby color. Mild, malty, with a bit of a hop note. Mild and well balanced. Not sweet, rather dry. Very pleasant, but not great.

(Draft) Sampled at the 2011 Great Canadian Beer Festival on September 9, 2011. Fluffy, light brown head atop a brown body. Strong dirt and berry seed aroma. Some potent spice found in the palate was absent from the nose. Great white peppery tongue. Very likable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy dark amber to brown color; nice creamy head; sticky lace. The aroma is mild, with caramel, but also a bit fruity. Smooth mouthfeel; quite good caramel flavor, correct bitterness, and with the same interesting fruity touch (the yeast?). Pleasant.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hopped with Mt. Hood, Pacific Gem and another unknown variety. Hazy amber. Light earthy-caramelly character with hints of grassiness. Moderately bitter- juicy, lemony, with light breadcrusty, caramelly accent. Basic amber is a fairly well-constructed form. Quite dry, lots of bitterness.
