JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2009
Copper coloured ale with a thin sticky white head. Aroma is lightly malty with loads of crackery fresh malts. Nice orange marmalade and earthy hoppiness on the top, but it definitely leans toward the malty side of things. Flavour has good balance with a lovely soft palate. Fairly fruity aroma with a touch of berryish esters. Low bitterness. Pretty solid.

Tap at brewery. Ash and sour malt aroma - very slight brine aroma initially that faded as it warmed. Dark amber color with a small head. Mild sour malt flavor with a very nice light smoky malt aftertaste. Light bodied. A tasty beer but on the light side.
