Absolutely no mistaking this ale. English style hops and roasted barley will drive through a totally unique taste sensation. Are you ready for it?

Draught 1/2 pint at the brewpub,(May 2007). Dark, near-opaque brown with a touch of creamy head...nose pleasantly nutty with some hints of smoked fruitwoods, a bit low-powered but nothing problematic about it....malty, lightly toasty-grainy, much cleaner and easier to drink than the other samples I had, touch of molasses....carbonation level is adequate here, and the finish is lightly bitter though its still a bit syrupy and could be drier. On the whole though, and adequate brown and far and away the best of the four I tried.

On tap at the brewpub. My experience seems very different than the other raters, as this could have easily passed for a stout. I either got the wrong beer or the recipe has changed, but the description works. Dark borwn with a mostly lasting frithy tan head. Chocolate and roasty aroma and flavour, a touch acidic and maybe some signs of a dirty tap line or that it is about to go off. Still pleasant though. Medium bodied, a but chewy but still refreshing.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2006
Draft. Light amber body with a tiny white head. Sweet fruity aroma similar to the wheat that suggest the yeast might be the source. Flavour has a similarly fruity character, with less malt presence than I would expect just based on the colour. Interesting sweet fruity bite to the finish. Average palate feels thinner than it should due to a lack of carbonation. Probably their weakest offering on this visit.

Crit (3830) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2003
Light malt and bread aroma. Light malt flavor throughout with brief hop finish. This was a bit flat, but probably because it was bought to me in a grolsch style bottle by a friend

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2003 Crisp taste. Aroma with malty notes, hops, bread (rye to be exact). Excellent mouthfeel and drinkability.
