2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours almost black with a thin head. Aroma is mild and smokey. Very smooth a little lacking in body. but it has a nice malty flavour followed with a strong dry smokey flavour. There must be some smoked malt in this. I like the effort this is a very cool beer. But a little dull and like i said, weak in body.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells lightly of malts and spring water. Fairly clear, not too much head or lacing, dark brownish where itís thick. Tastes of malts as well, not too much else, a bit of coffee in the end of the palate but otherwise itís very clean tasting. I thought it would be much bolder tasting with the a name like that! Itís certainly palatable, but too thin for my palate.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
I bought this beer because it says mild ale clearly on the label... Well I guess that style tick will have to wait until later. Pours a dark brown with a small ring of a head. The aroma is of musty hops, toffee, and grain grist. The flavor is sweet, tinny, and odd. This beer just doesnít do it for me... Just doesnít find any balance through out the entire palate. Never again.

A very nice dark (brown?) ale, but sadly, no information from the brewer on the label. Good pour and aroma; clear appearance, and quite acceptable taste. Iíd drink this again.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer pours a very dark brown almost black with a hint of red around the outside edges of the glass, the cap was non existent I even tried to produce some by doing a straight dump into my glass but no head could be made. The beer smells very strange to me for the style, sweet taffy and vanilla is what I notice most. The taste was strange, very sour with hints of cherries there was also a diffanent smoked flavor to it, there might be some smoked malts involved. The flavor seems held back and masked by the sourness of the beer but yet it didnít feel dry. And I also canít figure out why the smell is completely different then the taste. Not a bad brew but I donít think Iíll be picking it up again.

From bottle. Fruit, malt and brown sugar in the aroma. The beer is very clear. Nut brown in colour with a thin white head. Thin texture, earthy but has a metallic finish.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
First thing I thought of when I smelled this was burnt popcorn. Kind of an odd off flavor. Non-existent head. Little ma;ty, but mostly just smooth and a little flavorless. Kind of underwhelming.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Small tan head that mostly diminished, splotchy amount of lacing, carbonation noted, transparent, and a reddish brown hue. The nose was malty, coffee and roasty. Ditto for the flavor. Smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Eh, just a so-so beer IMO. Nothing special, mild flavor and just nothing that set the world on fire for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2008-02-23. Bottle. Dark brown body with a small creamy tan head that fades. Muted aroma, sweet malt, hints of caramel and dusty grain warehouse, very mild roast malt and brief touches of scorched caramel sweetnes. Similarly sweet malty flavour, sweet caramel and dark sugars. Very mild hints of earthy malt - briefly. Touches of cocoa or mocha in the background, roast malt rushes to join the party but doesnít quite make it in time. Slightly fuller than average palate. Much better than expected. Its a touch too mild, and fairly simple overall but it is decidedly drinkable if you like the sweeter side of things. Underrated, but not by much. (3+) Bottle from Kensington Wine Market, Calgary. Shared with Mabel.
