Good even head, nice and caramelly, yet a hint of darker malt. Very sessionable darker ale. A pleasant surprise from north of the border.

vadie (631) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
Brun très foncé avec un petit col tan. Arôme et le goût de malts grillés, mais très creux. Pas du tout comme il l’habitude d’être. Meh.

ljthiessen (321) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
On tap at the Toad in the Hole (Winnipeg). A clear, very dark red-brown body, medium creamy head. Light, sweet malty aroma, roasted malt and caramel flavour. Definitely light and easy drinking, Not fantastic, but a decent Winnipeg staple.

BeerandBlues2 (9446) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle at National Beer Hall. Pours clear dark brown with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is caramel and toast malt, dates and plums, and earthy hops. Flavor is malt with light hops and bitterness, dark fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Can. Deep brown pour with a khaki head. Light roast, lightly sweet, but largely forgettable. Glad to try it though.

reebtogi (4088) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2012
341ml bottle pours brown in color with a 2 finger white head that settles to a thin spotty lacing. Aroma is light roasted grains with some hints of fruit and grass. Taste is mild roasted grain malty sweetness with some grassy hop bitterness and a hint of fruitiness. Overall, an easy drinking brown ale, but there are much better ones out there.

Probably one of the better Fort Garry Selections. A nice dark fruity nose with a nice sweetness that reminds of raisin glosette’s. Very Drinkable - I would buy this again.
