3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Cafe 13 in Cambridge. A nice clear brown body, small beige head, decent retention. Delicate aroma of caramel, cheese, nuts, roasted malt and some floral nuances. Taste dominated by roasted malt and caramel, nuts, a touch of herbal tones. Low carbonation and almost no bitterness at all. Great representative of this style. Probably one of the best brews from Grand River Brewing.

Bought from Grand River Brewery retail store. Poured from 500ml botlle. Nice dark reddish brown with thick frothy head. Nutty, coffee aroma, but something else I canít quite put a finger on. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Tastes like a very mild porter. Good flavour, but very mild. Easily drinkable.

Smells like caramel, honey or even maple. Pours dark with a little lacing. Theres some barley here and a taste of bitterness. The beer doesnt have that much depth, but its good for the style - Grand River doesnt usually disappoint on that end. That said, I wont be rushing back to drink this. Tap at volos

Wow... 99 percentile? Well, I donít know if this is better than 99% of beers in its style, but thatís because I feel milds donít get rated high enough! I wonít punish this beer for that. This one of my favourite Canadian session beers... itís not easy to make such a well balanced beer, with the bitterness and sweetness having a pillowfight on your tonsils but theyíve done it. (My apologies if youíre tonsilly disabled)

Tap at volo, pour is pretty dark, the taste is a nice mix of porter like dark roasty malts and just a light taste of the yeastyness. The beer is pretty mild, overall not bad, but not too amazing, decent stuff

Thanks to ericandersnavy for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a dark amber color with a tan head. The aroma is very malty with a lot of toffee and some caramel mixed in. The flavor is similar. I get a ton of toffee, caramel, cocoa and some nuttyness. For such a low alcohol beer, there is a lot of flavor. Thin to medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice.
