3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Roasted nuts and dark chocolate aroma. Deep copper in colour with an off white head and minimal lacing. Malty, nutty flavour with dark chocolate tones. Medium palate with a sweet finish.
Appearance: Pours a ruby colored body with a thick & fluffy off-white head.
Smell: Nuts, malt, some caramel but not sweet. Creamy with slight hint of fruit but this is all on the low spectrum of aroma. It’s very but it’s brief.
Taste: Starts out malty with a discreet caramel presence. Ends at first with a low bitterness. There’s a metallic feel to it, subtle, like licking the shell of a nut. As it warms, it has a weird spoiled finish to it. I almost downgraded the score to a 2.5 but it’s really only at the end and doesn’t terribly affect the taste though it is weird.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is a bit high but otherwise the smooth feel on the palate is pleasant though more of a low body than medium as the label states.

Good head. Nice carmell and vanilla notes. Good Brown Ale. Very easy to drink on any day especially from draught. bcBelgianbrew (115) - , British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2015
Nicely balanced with hops & malt. This is an easy drinking beer. A good example of a brown ale imo.

Looks like this is Craft Beer Market’s local brew, as brewed by other people that it. Has a soft nutty aroma, decent head and a dark brown ruby body. Flavour is a great hazelnut and malt mix. It’s a decent amber drink. MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Not a bad ale. Nice malt notes and some nuttiness to it. Also has a nice drinkable caramel flavour. Not bad.

On tap at Alley Kat, pours a clear amber brown with a large off-white head. Nose brings out bready malts and light toasted notes. Flavour is pleasant, with toasted bready malt and light toasted dry caramel. Very well-balanced and drinkable. Very good. tdubs92 (63) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2015
Toasted almond and malty smell. Exceptionally off white small head. Malty with hints of nut, chocolate and coffee. Decent blend, adequate amber. Alanthebeerguy (213) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2014
On tap at Beer Brothers. Pours clear brown, average head, good lacing. Smells and tastes more like a mild chocolate porter. Toffee, chocolate dominate. Nice beer but more than a brown ale in flavour.

Draft. Deep amber, almost copper with a finger of biege head. Malt aroma. taste is mostly malt as well, some molasses and some unexpected earthiness. a_sully (457) - - AUG 1, 2014
Brownish red and clear with a foamy white head. Aroma is light with hints of caramel. Taste matches with an overall sweetness.
