Arôme de malts caramel anglais, et de la mélasse. Le goût est malts anglais avec un douceur de caramel. Carbonatation doux.

650 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with minimal head. Aromas of bark and nuts. Very watery thin flavors of burnt biscuits and nuts. Pass

Some hops. Pours clear mahogany with some lacing, no head. A little sweetened malt. Some bitterness, not very interesting. Average carbonation and slick texture. On tap at brewpub.

Bottle. Pours a murky mud water. Aroma is watery nut malt. Taste is the same, but way more lactic.

gramity (1307) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Toasted nut aroma with a brownish color. A small head that dissapeared quickly. Flavor was malty and again nutty. Sweet and flavorful. A good brown ale.

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2012
Loved the colour. Small dissipating head. Mild coffee with cream aroma mixed up there with the malt. Taste? Well, I definitely did pick up some nuts here. Not a lot but some. Spinnaker’s makes very softly carbonated drinks, I think that’s their forte. It’s an odd thing to say, until you remember the same can be said of Fuller’s.

I’m more of a fan of this style than other beer geeks, so I can safely say that since this is Spinnaker’s best "sessionable" beer I’ve tried it’s the most likely one I’ll buy again.

riversideAK (5595) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Nutty, roast, chocolate, earth. Pours brown, some haze, thin head. THe flavor is rather straightforward with nutty notes, light sweetness, and an earthy moderately bitter finish.

Lagerboy (1189) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
Dark amber, receding tan head. The sweet nutty malt aroma seemed promising, but tasted kinda thin. Light bodied, low hopped. Tart thin finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
