Draught, Pub Italia. Amber-brown. Thin head. Faint aroma is slightly caramelly and nutty. Basically a mild, toasty brown ale. A bit light but nothing wrong with it. Lubiere (14124) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2011

can. pours clear dark copper, almost light brown orange, with a very creamy off-white head, sticky lacing. fruity toasted browned malts, fresh coffee grains - medium city roast, not quite vienna style; touch of sweetness - chocolate-covered raisins; pepper, clean english yeast. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; semi-sweet yet bitter/astringent grassy-earthy finish. quite enjoyed this amber-brown ale. solidfunk (9224) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Not super interesting but a good go-to in Ottawa non-craft brew pubs. Pours dark amber with some roast malt and a little hoppy bitterness. Good for pitcher session at Mugshots. Tap.

Aroma: lighter nose , brown malts , gentle sweet brown sugar , hint of leafy hops.7-
Appearance: solid look. Brown with neatly contrasting white , large snowy top. Great lace. What else you might want ? 5/5
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium lighter body. Slight tartness, nutty follow up , dry sides with bitter lip-smacking roast. Hefty bitterness was thirst quenching to be sure. Nicely done.
Draft: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a small foamy head with light retention and limited lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt with light sweet nutty notes as well. Taste is a mix between some nutty caramel notes with some semi-dry caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not overly complex and easily drinkable.

Draft at Pub Italia. Red-amber, decent lace. Aroma of cookie malt, bran muffin. Sweet malt profile needs more depth, body, oomph, and some hops couldnt hurt. But the bread flavors are pleasant and juicy.

Clear brown pour, small off white head. Big upfront aroma of nuts, and doughy, caramel malts. Quite bitter in the end, with a sharp metallic finish. Meh. Eructoblaster (4308) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2012
On tap at Sir John A (Ottawa, ON). Brown body with a fair off-white creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with grainy hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries grainy and oaky notes. Ends with a decent bitter/woody finish. Enjoyable Brown Ale.
