Oakes (15292) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2015
Medium brown, aroma is spicy like a bit of cinnamon and pepper, vanilla too I swear. That character is assertive, with a little hit of apple...more like a breakfast cereal than beer. The brown ale simply does not come out enough. No balance.
