Can. Dark ruby-amber with a small head. Aroma of dark caramel and fruit, some dried leaves around the edges. Flavour is malt-forward, with nutty roast malt and chocolate-covered cherry, and some woody hops bringing a bit of balance in the finish. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Pours a clear dark amber with a small, creamy, off-white head that laces. Faint aroma of caramel malt and a hint of nuts. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, nuts and a hint of chocolate with a dry, bitter hoppy finish. Light body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Meh.

Light caramel and nutty malts, bit of hop bitterness. Good balance but a bit bland and boring. Pours a light amber with a thin off white head. Crisp and clean.

Drank from bottle, no glass nearby. Quite floral, malty, sweet and caramalized sugar. Not bad, not over my complex.

Malt, nut, honey aroma. Red Cherrywood colour with a thin white foam. Taste is fairly light compared to the look of the beer. Delicate hints of walnut and almond with medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malts, fruity esthers and light toast. Taste is caramel, toffee, sweet malts, nuts and some sweet fruity notes.. Nice pleasant and balanced amber ale... Could use an addition of citrus hops to add complexity though otherwise a nice smooth beer.

On tap at Barley Brothers. Clear amber pour with a tan head. Aroma is smooth malty caramel; flavour is much the same. Creamy, malty and mild. Super easy drinking. Nothing special, but very drinkable. Palate is very thin and light.
