3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a fairly good dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving a light lacing trickling along the glass.
The smell had a nice roasty to sweet blend of nuttiness to caramel malts.
The taste was a roasty sweet rolling nuttiness with a light caramel and toffee blend.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability. It seemed extremely well carbonated for the style as it came across fairly smooth.
Overall, hey...uh, nice brown ale I’d have again.

A simple but decent nut brown. Pours a deep brown with a light white head. Smells of nuts with a bit of caramel and vanilla. Taste is nutty all around, with a bit of vanilla. A nice relaxing drink, but forgettable. Had on tap at Mug and Anchor in Mahone Bay.

Deep chestnut pour. Aroma is honey toast, almonds. Smooth, easy drinking. Some toffee, almonds, brown bread in the flavour. Some sweetness throughout. Alright.

This is a tasty lil’ Brown this is! Garrison is one of the premier breweries around the Canadian Maritimes and this brew is one of their flagship suds. It pours a dark maple syrup colour with a fizzy tan head than gets the hell outta Dodge awful quick. Maple, walnuts, roasty malts and basement waft up to tantalize the nostrils. It’s got an enjoyable sweetness to it kept in check by a dry and bitter finish. I wish the body was a bit fuller but it does have a nicely carbonated, slightly oily feel.

Un couleur rouge-marron avec une petite mousse beige. L’arôme du malt un peu sucré. Léger, même doux, en bouche avec du malt et très peu amertume.

Bottle. Never much of Brownmen, but here we go. Taste of caramel, toffee, and toasted nuts, with some hints of chocolate in their. Has a nice medium body to her with not too much bitterness. All and all a middle of the road brown ale.

Pours a nice clear brown colour with big off white head that quickly dissolves into a tiny little ring. Aroma is malty, sweet, caramel, chocolate, nutty, and getting a bit of toast. Flavour is malty, caramel, chocolate, toast, mild-medium bitterness. a decent brew.
