2012-02-25. Mahogany red-brown body, modest tan and and nice lace on the glass. Flavour is interesting, modest hoppy bitterness over a mild brown ale like base, lingering leafy green hops. Pleasant, very well balanced. I would like more assertive hops but you might lose a bit of the drink-ability that way. 7+ Fairly mild aroma, light green hops, muted malt. 6+ Average palate suits it. 7/4/7/3/15 On tap at Volo, Toronto

Can 473 ml
Aroma: solid compilation of darker them with aromatic hop variety. Hint of chocolate, pit with garden zest.7+
Look: poured as clear dark amber with fairly dense almost creamy off white top. Sparse lace presented. 4-
Taste: lower carbonation. Strong earthy, woody notes typical to brown ale yet with bit more depth than most. Slight touch of zest on side. Drinkable , satisfying approach. Nice brewing.

Draught at Bar Hop Customer Appreciation Night, Jan. 31. Pours a deep dark orange-amber with a small lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of lightly toasted malt, nuts, leafy hops and a hint of chocolate. Pleasant malty flavour along with leafy hops, some roastiness and notes of coffee. Average to medium bodied. Surprisingly good for this brewery, keep it up.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can: Poured a clear medium brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some lacing. Aroma of grainy malt with light dry caramel notes with some funky and lightly citrusy hops notes. Taste is a weird mix between some unrefined grainy cereal notes and some stale hoppy notes with light citrus undertones. Body is about average with good carbonation. I either got a bad can of this or maybe it just didn’t fit my style but I though the hops were stale and lacking and the malt base used wasn’t the greatest.

Nutty, good cereal malts, light citrus, piney hops. Lovely pine resin finish with a shot of nutty, woody malts. Great stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473 ml can at Loon. Very deep ruby with a so-so tan head. Lightly earthy, lightly nutty malts, light floral hops, a bit of brown sugar, not bad. Medium body, somewhat relaxed effervescence. Light nutty earthy brown sugar, vague and not great, oddly fruity, a little resinous and pine like, lightly vinous with a Newcastle brown character, meh; dry, moderate bitterness and a so so brown ale finish. Ok.
