3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, the fifth beer on TvM’s Bachelor Party Northwest Ale Trail Expedition. Hazy deep golden amber, rocky off white head that lasts. Pleasing aroma of brown bread with citrus. Bready malts, milk chocolate, bright hop character, carbonation is on the lively side, moderate sweetness, long assertive bitterness. A nice India brown ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Darkish brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is malty with some chocolate and roasty notes, a touch of fruit. Flavour is much the same, but with a surprising hoppy bite, a little citrus zest and a little herbal. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A flavourful and balanced brown ale, but nothing extraordinary.

ENG: 650ml bottle from Liquor Mart Winnipeg. Poured into the tulip. Dark brown, iridescent color, medium cream head and some lacing. Aromas of chocolate, nuts, coffee, caramel malts and some piney hops. Tastes mostly caramel, chocolate and nuts in the background. Delicate bitter finish. Quite oily, medium carbonated and medium bodied. Balanced beer with nothing what strikes you noticeably, nonetheless very pleasant, drinkable beer.
PL: Butelka 650ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg. Przelana do kieliszka. Ciemno-brązowa barwa, opalizująca, średnia kremowa piana i nieco lejsingu. Aromaty czekolady, orzechów, kawy, słodów karmelowych i nieco żywicznych chmieli. Smak karmelowy, czekoladowy i orzechowy w tle. Delikatna goryczka pod koniec. Całkiem oleiste, średnio nasycone i średnie ciało. Mocno zbalansowane piwo, w którym nie ma dominujących smaków ani aromatów, mimo wszystko bardzo przyjemnie pijalne.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark mahogany color, almost black, with beige creamy head. The roastiness in this beer is under control, it has some chocolate, it’s rather dry and highly carbonated, quite bitter, presents hidden hop qualities, but also light chicory traits and yeast.

Brown beer with a brown micro-head, gave good lacing. Taste is of roasted malts, coffee and maybe some chocolate. A nice overall offering. A good Brown for a local beer.

Pours a clear brown with a huge frothy and lacey light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, cocoa, nutty and a bit of earthy hops. Taste is roasted malts, hazelnut, chocolate, caramel, earthy and a light citrus bite which isn’t quite to style but it is very balanced, complex and has a nice dry finish.
