Not a typical dark brown ale but I really like the reddish glow here. Aroma doesn't really exist, decent flavor but very incomplete. Easy to drink but not very enjoyable to drink. I didn't even notice the nutty roasty flavor.

YigSvartka (238) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 24, 2015
Translucent brown with minimal head. Subtle, but pleasant caramel, chestnut, hazelnut, vanilla, and malt aroma. Light bodied and smooth. Tastes precisely as it smells with the addition of mild roast and minor hop in the finish. A worthy introductory ale.

KoNrRiI (861) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2015
0.341 bottle. Clear, light brown color and a small, off-white head. Aroma of dark malts, dark fruits, and caramel. Taste is simple, malty, sweet, delicately watery, and unsurprising. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is short and uneventful. Overall a mediocre beer.

Amber brown pour with a bubbly white crown. Little nut on the nose...mainly metallic alcohol smell. Bitter nut taste. All there is to it. Easy drinking nut ale.

Metalchopz (2715) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2015
Part of their Winter Craft Pack. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a warm light-beige head, good retention and decent creamy lacing. Aromas are sweet with malt and some nice grass at first, that disappears with time. The taste is also malty with some sweetness. Some caramel, some roastiness, but not getting the nuttiness. Kind of a cheap, easy-drinking brown ale. Not a craft one.

lesifflebiere (1521) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2015
Boisson rouge acajou limpide mais assez foncé, mince avec une mousse rare, et un nez de sucre d’orge, de bois mouillé et de noisettes. La bouche est relativement mince, aqueuse, avec des arômes encore de noisettes, mais pas grand-chose d’autre. La finale est plutôt abrupte, avec une vague note acidulée mais sans houblons ni malts dominants. Agréable sans plus, elle respecte le genre, mais en constitue l’entrée de gamme.

reebtogi (5068) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2011
341mL bottle poured an amber-brown color with a beige head that settled slowly to some spotted lace. Aroma of nuts and malt. Taste is lightly sweet with some bitterness in the finish. Nice carbonation and a little thin on the body. Overall, this is quite a drinkable beer.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2004
Amber-brown colour with thin off-white head that falls back to a thin film of bubbles. Thin metallic, slightly sweet aroma, with a faint but pleasant nuttiness. Thin caramel malt sweetness with a short brown sugar and roasted nut finish. Thin bodied, but no more so than anything from this brewery. A simple brew but not a bad one.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Nice dark brown appearance with a faint creamy aroma. Flavor is extremely mild with a touch of malts. Very smooth. At best an average Brown but it gets bonus points for drinkability.
