COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jksipa (197) - 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.

shaynsawchuk (359) - 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 (266) - 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

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2013
This Ale poured a deep, dark red color with a nice big light brown head. Nice lacing. The nose has scents of thick dark malt, molasses, caramel and roasted grain. Maybe a little chocolate? First taste was rich but had an almost watery base. Roasty malt flavor with hints of coffee, molassass and cocoa. The finish is burnt in flavor with a little hopp shining through. Palate starts off burnt and conintues through to a little tinge of bitter flavor. Nice complex brew, thats easy to drink. -Fish!

Hateball16 (105) - - JUN 11, 2013
Appearance: mahogany brown with nice ruby highlights, decent beige head. Aroma: lovely toasty notes of nuts and biscuit, very malty with some chocolate/coffee roastiness. Flavour: nutty, malty, pumpernickel, toffee, and some raisins. Well balanced with some restrained hop bitterness to take the edge off the malt profile. Mouthfeel: smooth and medium full bodied, moderate carbonation, semi-sweet finish Overall: delicious dark ale, would pair well with any red meat, stews, or sticky toffee pudding.

shorlin (589) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAY 23, 2013
Really nice malty aroma, good dark ale notes. Starts off a bit of caramel, then a little roasty. It’s a dark brown, little head with little lacing. Some initial sweetness in the taste, followed by bitter. Pretty good! I have had this on tap and enjoyed it more, but from the can it’s OK too. Palate is a little light, but a decent long finish. Overall, a good beer and glad to have it.

Surprise this brew is not rated higher. To be honest, I am not a fan of the name because this is a great, easy drinking beer... The name however sounds a bit harsh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one grows on you, the start is kind of bland but the flavour and balance are great. On the lighter side body wise and aroma, but a genuine malty ale that pleases and is not trying to be more.
