3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark ruby/brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is a blend of light toffee, roasted grains and nutty notes. Smooth malty profile in the flavor, finishes through slightly sweet and with lingering roasted character. Very light and thin on the palate, although the depth of flavor makes this perfectly acceptable. A refreshing dark beer, even on a warm summer evening.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from LCBO. Pours a red tinged dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma is dominated by overly roasted, slightly burnt malts. Flavour is better; notes of licorice, caramel, dark chocolate, and a light smokiness in the finish. The palate is a little thin and watery. A very good attempt at a quality English brown.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample pack. Mount Albert, Canada.
Woody aroma. Is barky a word? This is barky. I dig it; nice and strong, like I was hoping it would be. Great pour, deep mahogany. Solid head. Starts of very well. Very creamy taste - silky smooth. Instant gratification. Woody, malty, choco. a little thin for my liking, but that’s a minor thing. Otherwise, I am impressed by this guy.
