Awarded a Silver Medal in the Beer World Cup (English style brown ale) 2004, also a Silver Medal in the 2004 Canadian Awards and a Gold medal at the Mondial in Montreal 2008. A traditional dark English Mild. The term mild meaning “not bitter” does not refer to strength. Using pure natural spring water, New Zealand hops and imported specialty malts. Giving rich malt and light nut aromas and mellow malt and good hop notes to the palate. A smooth and easy drinkable ale. Perfectly partnered with beef, steaks, stews, goulash or kebabs.

Malt forward brown. Less zinginess than usual in this style. But I enjoy the malt flavors immensely. Nice sweetness at the back end.

Ferris (4128) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Draft - Toasted malts and some light nutty notes. Dark brown with a decent white head. Toasted malts and very little else. Typical of the English style they were perusing, but not very interesting.

lesifflebiere (1266) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Bière foncée mais assez mince, à la mousse rare qui est de couleur crème. Arômes sucrés de malts fortement rôtis sans être torréfiés. Un petit côté sucre d’orge ressort en bouche, avec une vague de fruits rouges en finale ; les houblons, très discrets, ferment timidement la marche. Le tout est un brin aqueux. Une bonne bière en général, agréable même, mais elle manque un peu de torque.

BiereLuc (898) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Bière brune limpide aux reflets cuivrés / rougeâtres. La mousse est timide. Au nez, caramel et raisins me chatouillent les narines (mais pas assez pour que je m’esclaffe). En bouche, une fine amertume se faufile à travers un champs de caramel – le caramel, ça pousse dans les champs, right? – sur un fond de noix rôties. Un peu de foin mouillé aussi. Sinon, la bière est relativement mince. En gros, c’est ça que j’avais à dire...

asheft (2509) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
Can. Bubblegum aroma dominates with some chocolate and red fruit. Very dark ruddy chestnut and clear with a tawny ring. Very nutty flavour that is estery and slightly oxidized. Medium light body, medium carbonation, nutty finish.

jksipa (348) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2013
Can from the LCBO. Pours a deep cola brown with a generous beige head that leaves some lace. Aroma is chocolate and plums and caramel with alhohol in the finish. Medium sweetness with not much trace of bitterness. With a name like 10w30 I was expecting something oily and thick but it turns out to be light and watery with average carbonation.

tompete (211) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2013
473ml can. Pours a dark ruby brown with a solid beige head. Aroma is chocolate and caramel, but very light. Flavour is more of the chocolate and slight sweetness and malt. Body is medium to heavy. Finish is malty and slightly bitter.

shaynsawchuk (477) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2013
473 mL can. Pours a rich dark reddish brown as the name suggests with a nice beige cap of head. Aromas of toffee, nuts, brown malt, licorice, dark bread and a touch of hop spice. Mildly sweet with minimal hop bitterness and only a hint of aromatics. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and a malty finish. Well made, nothing outstanding.

Alpha10 (332) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 2013/07/17 - Pours a dark brown amber colour with a foamy, tan head that reduces quickly. Aroma is molasses, spices, coffee and toasted malts. Taste is sweet molasses, and cocoa up front with a slightly bitter, burnt malt finish. Mouthfeel is medium, with medium carbonation and a drying finish. OK, not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
