3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I tried this beer on December 7, 2011 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent golden-red colour with a 1" light tan coloured cap. The aroma was grains, some honey, and floral hops, as well as a little skunkiness.The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is old grains, weak hops, and some nutmeg in the finish. Not a lot of honey sweetness though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear orange-amber with modest-sized slightly off-white head. Grains and honey in aroma. Taste has a honeyish sweetness on top of some grainy malt. Medium body. Nothing special but I didn’t find it unpleasant either.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber via my bro, from LCBO somewhere..., served cold in a tulip glass. 31MA11.
App.: Clear copper with a nice fluffy light tan head.
Aroma: Really sweet, like a sweetened breakfast cereal, lots of mashy sweet grain, a touch fruity, all sweet malt, all the time.
Palate: Medium body, moderate but prickly effervescence.
Flav.: More really sweet, saccharine sweet malts, cereal/grains, a little raisin and other dark dried fruit, less mashy than the nose, apple juice, meh; dry (surprisingly!) with a kinda odd apple juice malt finish.
No thanks. This brewer has failed to impress.

Bottle, this one truely one of the least enjoyable beers I have ever had, the bottle pours a dark brown colour, and it had a small head, the taste was darker malts mix with a little bit of honey in the back and it didnt mix well,

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus. Pours a clear golden-orange with an average size fluffy off-white head. Aroma is very mild and there’s not much there at all, maybe some grain and paper. Like the aroma there’s not much to the the flavour, there’s some grain and sweet honey and that’s pretty much it. Thin bodied. Very boring.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bomber from the lcbo. first of all this is not a brown ale. what it is, is a very malty, sweet jumbled mess of an amber ale. pretty bad considering how clean this tastes. not a brewingflaw, just a bad recipe.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is fairly faint, honey, malt, and a slight bit of spicy hops. The beer itself is a light copper colour with a thin offwhite head. The taste is very well balanced, malty and hoppy blending together well. There is a smokey chocolate note on the palate. Very complex and interesting beer!
