2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown colour, dull head. Sharp and mettalic flavours make this pretty regular beer; lacks the fruitiness required. Draught.

Dark amber brown pour with very little head. Mainly just a sweet malt taste, some hops but not prominent. Medium thin body.

Bottle. This is actually an acceptable brown ale; decent chocolate character. Clear and dark brown. Better than other "discount brand" dark ales; okay for the price.

Bottle, pours dark amber red, aroma is nutty, flavour has a bit nut, a bit coffee, a bit toffee, and overall kind of heavy but it was drinkable

Malty, very little hop presence. Decent session ale, but I wouldn't go out of my way to have it again.

This is the first Canadian beer I had on my trip to Toronto in 2013. I drank this on the suggestion of my hosts in Toronto when we went to a Thai restaurant. It wasn’t particularly tasty. It was rather mild, dark in color, with a subtle brown sugary sweetness.

Pours dark brown with a white rim. Smoky, roasty aroma. Taste of roast and malts. A light hint of chocolate and a touch of licorice.

From old notes.
Malt, fruit and an appetising pear drop to almost diluite prune quality makes this more interesting than you would expect. Dry end, some hops but very restrained. Relatively decent mid oaky colour. Not too bad really.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle pours a brownish red color with a 2 finger off-white head that retains well and leaves some thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted malts and mild fruits and hops. Taste is light roasty malt and hoppy bitterness balanced with some caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium body with modest carbonation. A pretty decent, easy drinking beer that I enjoyed sampling.
