Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Milk chocolate brown colour. Odd duck this one. Very English tasting, malty and complex. One could probably taste whatever one wanted somewhere in there. Overall, it works reasonably well and is worth a try.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark ruby-brown, mild spidering. Aroma is malt, bitter, and sour. Taste is round simple dark ale with a bitter background. The taste is actually quite good, but the sourness in the aroma turns me off. It might be dirty lines, it might be a slightly off batch, but it is what it is.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I’ve tried this as both ’Yukon Lead Dog Ale’ and ’Chilkoot Lead Dog Ale’. Either way it’s not the world’s greatest ale. The beer appears to be brownish red, with a thin creamy head. The flavour is very disappointing. A weak watery flavour, with some sweet fruity tones.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Pours a clear ruby brown color with a creamy brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, nuts, slight caramel and some sweet dried fruits. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, nuts and finishes off with a light bitterness. Excellent english Olde.
