Bottle, at the pig, DC. A clear, light brown beer with a small, dense, beige head. Nutty, toffee aroma with a bready touch. Some dark dried fruits in the flavor, with toffee, nuts and caramel. It’s medium to full bodied, nicely carbonated. A decent and easy drinkable beer. 150619

mcberko (9214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark amber brown with a medium beige head. Nose brings out dark fruits, toasted malt, and toasted bready caramel. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted caramel bready malt, some dark fruits, and toasted nuts. Pretty robust for a brown ale, with a dry toasted finish. Very good.

reebtogi (4746) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2015
355ml bottle pours brown in color with 2 fingers of light tan head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light chocolate and roasted grains with some herbal and citrus notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a light roasted grain and citrus hop bitterness finishing with some herbal notes. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Overall, well balanced and tasty and worth checking out.

Aroma is dark chocolate and a bit of bread crust, almost like a burnt toast. Light brown in color with reddish highlights. Medium sized white head. Taste is lightly sweet initially followed by a light bitterness. Finishes slightly dry and quenching. Decent brown beer
