Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2008 Fall 2008: Golden amber. The aroma is earthy with lots of caramelly malt and abundant earthy, woody hops. Sweet, with earthy nuances, lots of earthy, slightly lemony bitterness. Drinks easy, but has intensity, too. Chocolate malt emerges in the finish.

Spring 2006: Orangey-brown colour. The aroma shows earth, chocolate, a little bit of crystal malt and bright orangey hops. The flavour is robust with those orangey hops meeting strong toasty notes with light chocolate in the background. Hefty bitterness and a blast of alcohol round things out. 7-3-7-3-14 = 3.4
