Keg at Stillwell. It pours clear mahogany brown with a decent white head. The nose is soft, caramel, dried fruits, candied apricot, toasty brown sugars, nut and brown bread. The taste is bitter-sweet, earthy, woody, oily, toasted nuts, cereal, leather, brown bread and caramel with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Solid esb style action. Works well.

Pours a nice clear copper colour. Pretty good lasting head and great lacing. The taste is sweet breadiness and biscuits. It has a smooth floral taste. Pretty good, I’d have it again

patricks110 (2113) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
Really well balanced and sessionable. Pours a hazy brown with a thick white head. The aroma is well malted with tons of caramel and toffee. Nutty malts in the middle with a light spicy hop. A bit thin in the body. The finish has a moderate bitterness and light astringency.

A decent ale, toasted malts and a light roasted nutty flavour. Smooth and easy to drink. Not bad.
