JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2010
Tap at Rattle N Hum. Brown pour with a tight off-white head. The nose has a touch of toasted malt but also a fairly pronounced fruity/estery quality. A bit sweet with an almost candied nut flavour on the back. Oddly bubble gummy and even a touch of soapiness comes out. It’s not really bad, but it’s a fairly atypical brown ale.
