[4549-20120622] Tap. Mild bandaid medicinal booze malt aroma hints a little at chocolate. Dark brown amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. Bitter toasted wood and coffee malt grain flavour. Medium body is a little dry. Nice to sample, not sure I could drink a dry pint. (6/3/7/4/14) 3.4
(2012 Summer FOCB @ C’est What, Toronto, ON)

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2012
Cask at C’est What Summer Festival of Craft Breweries, June 22. Pours reddish-brown with pretty much no head. Aroma of malt and what seems like toffee and chocolate to me. Flavour is malty, slightly toasty and with some light hops. Average bodied. Not great but good.

Spab (2390) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
On cask at C’est What Summer Festival Of Craft Breweries. Pours an opaque slightly orangey brown with small tan head. Aroma is rich toffee-ish malt with some bread. Flavour is also rich, somewhat toasty malt with toffee and bready character. Carbonation is on the light side. Pleasant.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
A hazed brown ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a sweet caramel malt with doughy notes, grass, alcohol and solvent. In mouth, sweet nutty malt, roasty, grassy hops, a bit of burned notes. On tap at C’est What’s Festival of Small Brewers, June 23, 2012.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2012
2012-06-22. Dark brown body witha small beige head. 3+ Sweet malt base with toasty brown ale overtones that take more precedence as the glass goes on. Dusty malt grows in the finish and aftertaste. Similar aroma, modest toasty brown ale character over a sweeter malt base. Average plus bodied palate. 3+ Pretty solid take on a brown ale. On Cask at C’est What Summer Festival of Craft Breweries, Toronto

on cask at GRB’s 5th anniversary. brown lasting tan head. very nice looking cask pour. complex layered malty nose. big malt forward flavour finishing really dry for a brown ale. not overly drinkable but still an enjoyable pint.
