Tap at Maxwellís Plum, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Good foamy head that didnít last. Amber color (I was expecting a black beer). Some malty aroma. A nutty after taste. Good beer.

Small-bubbled head atop a dark orange ale. Not a lot of aroma but flavour is quite distinctly of brown sugar and some malt. Not especially creamy but smooth enough and no off flavours. Lacks hops but thatís about par for the style.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 I must say I donít enjoy the aroma it smells kinda like wet dog. An intresting amber colour. It looks like a beer that would have a big rich taste but honestly it really dosent and I like that. It is kind of sweet and has a pleasent aftertaste. Pretty decent find

Nice beer from draft. Glad that Sleeman kept this one around. No real head to speak of, but nice rich colour, and clean finish. Great deal with the growler from the brewery.

Quite a dark cream ale, nice flavor, some molasses and carmel, one of the better maritime beers for me.

I laugh when I see idiots at the local bars and pubs drink this because they think itís ífancyí.
Itís actually(for me)the best beer this company makes. Well balanced cream ale with a dark tint to it. Very nice smell too.

Looks are deceiving! In this case they are masking the lack of taste and the sweaty sock smell!

Overall, a pretty good beer. Doesnít taste or look like a cream ale. Goes down smooth with a sudden rich mildly bitter aftertaste of caramel / molasses. In my opinion, much better than the rest of the Sleeman beers.
