Draught at the brewery. Pours clear tawny with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is molasses, cookie and toast malt with dates. Flavor is toast and cookie malt, earthy notes, molasses, dates, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Opaque dark amber/brown with a thin beige head. Pretty faint aroma with little else besides dark earthy cereal grains to pick out. Light body and light flavor. I feel like Iím drinking a macro thatís trying to be something itís not. Very light earthy cereal malt with a little toffee, but mostly watery and light and semi-sweet are what I get.

A real sweet aroma almost like a barely wine. A slightly bitter front with semi sweet tail.

Sammy (11069) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Reddish body with little head, but noticeable lace. Roasted malt, mollasses, good drinkability. Tasted British style, apparently the original Franklin recipe with corn, which gave it an unusual sweetness. Average mouthfeel.

Tap @ brewpub. Supposedly this is Ben Franklinís recipe and itís made with molasses and corn. Dark maroon body with a medium sized tan/violet head. Sweet amber malts with some nuttiness in the nose. Flavor is a fairly basic amber ale but quite a bit sweeter due to the obvious molasses character. Mouthfeel is a little syrupy. Not bad but too sweet and too syrupy for my taste.
