The beer is 5.2% alc. and offers the palate a balance of dark malt notes with a clean, short bitterness on the finish. The name, 1855, is our way of saluting the great city of Ottawa that has been so good to us.

Draught, Pub Italia. Amber-brown. Thin head. Faint aroma is slightly caramelly and nutty. Basically a mild, toasty brown ale. A bit light but nothing wrong with it.

Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium lighter body. Slight tartness, nutty follow up , dry sides with bitter lip-smacking roast. Hefty bitterness was thirst quenching to be sure. Nicely done.

solidfunk (5685) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Not super interesting but a good go-to in Ottawa non-craft brew pubs. Pours dark amber with some roast malt and a little hoppy bitterness. Good for pitcher session at Mugshots. Tap.

Boutip (5272) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2012
Draft: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a small foamy head with light retention and limited lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt with light sweet nutty notes as well. Taste is a mix between some nutty caramel notes with some semi-dry caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not overly complex and easily drinkable.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2012
Draft at Pub Italia. Red-amber, decent lace. Aroma of cookie malt, bran muffin. Sweet malt profile needs more depth, body, oomph, and some hops couldnt hurt. But the bread flavors are pleasant and juicy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

robinvboyer (3620) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2012
On tap at the manx. Clear brown pour, small off white head. Big upfront aroma of nuts, and doughy, caramel malts. Quite bitter in the end, with a sharp metallic finish. Meh.

Eructoblaster (3434) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
On tap at Sir John A (Ottawa, ON). Brown body with a fair off-white creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with grainy hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries grainy and oaky notes. Ends with a decent bitter/woody finish. Enjoyable Brown Ale.
