[4628-20120729] 12floz bottle. Mild grainy malt aroma. Hazy, dark orange brown body with a huge long-lasting foamy light yellow head. Bitter dusty grains flavour has an odd fruity note. Medium body. Not a fan of the oddness. (5/3/5/3/10) 2.6

jercraigs (9840) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
2012-07-29. Lightly hazy brown body, massive foamy beige head tries to escape the glass. 3+ Modest aroma, dusty malt, lightly nutty bready notes. Flavour is similar, malt forward, dry toasty malt and caramel notes, bready malt accents. Light bitterness, dry malt lingers long into the finish. Average bodied palate. The dryness of the finish and the huge foamy pour suggests that aging the bottle may have had an effect but it is pretty quaffable and enjoyable. Just a touch more sweetness would be nice for my own tastes but not entirely necessary. Decent. Bottle cellared a while, via trade with flandersned

demitriustown (1184) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2011
12 oz bottle: Appearance is a clear brown with a thick tan head that lingers. Aroma is malt, nutty, light caramel, and a little bit bready and grainy. Taste has got a decent brown ale taste to it. Lightly chocolaty, malts, grainy, and maybe some hop texture but more malt forward. Palate is very lively in the mouth with a mouth coating malt texture at the beginning of the aftertaste and diminishing to a carbonated dryness. Overall, An average brown ale. Nothing really to make it outstanding. Cheers!

Poured a nice mahogany with a tan head. aroma brown sugar, malt, chocolate, yeast. flavor light bitter with some not so sweet cherry and citrus. Had a light body, thin feel, fizzy carbonation which took away from the flavor
