3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An excellent example of the style with low carbonation, thin creamy head, bitter chocolate, sour nose; coffee like, bitter chocolate, mildy nutty malty taste with a nice slightly sour finish

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate color, darker than brown, with a tan head; roasty aroma with a hint of...lime? Likeable chocolatey flavor, balancing sweetness, wouldn't wanna drink this all night but it's a nice little beer, all most like a darker alt...in fact it reminds me a bit of Schell's Scmaltz's alt!

Mild spicy aroma. Body is hoppy and spicy, yet laid back and mellow. Quite a good and interesting brown ale.

Alberta’s premier draft session beer. No gimmicks, no honey just a good beer. Above average malt and mouth feel for the style. A little sweetness in the aftertaste as well. Could use a little more hops.

Has a deep brown colour, low head that disappears quickly. A satisfying beer with a touch of bitteness in the finish. If you like something like Newcastle, this is definitely a better beer. Recommended if you can find it.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2005 Bright golden-brown. Fairly light aroma with hints of caramel. Light bodied, with hints of caramel and light hazelnut. Mouthfeel seems artificially thick. Slightly watery finish.
