A soft brew with a faint malt character and a hoppier, spicier nose.........

Lubiere (13991) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2005
Dark amber ale with a good white head. Caramel aroma with notes of nuts and light smokeyness. Good malt base with nuttyness, like a good brown ale, not too sweet. Medium bodied. Jan. 2005.

Dogbrick (13145) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Sample at the "Portland? Psh More Like Beerland" tasting on 03/10/10. Bottle courtesy of a traveling colleague. The beer is a clear dark amber color with a medium thin and foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Grainy malt and hops in the nose. Medium, smooth body with flavors of sweet malt, mildly bitter hops and a touch of molasses. The finish is malty with a lingering light hops aftertaste. Okay overall.

hopdog (12673) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2005
12oz bottle acquired in trade with (thanks!). Poured a dark orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of light caramel, light smoke, and light grains (everything on the light side). Tastes of caramel, nuts, and toasted malts. Creamy but thin body.

Sammy (12361) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2004
lots of lacing, overall average. Malty bsicuit sweet but bitterness there too, in the finish. English style yes. Spicy hops, and that’s the aroma. On-tap at Fort York Brew Fest 2004.

2010 decent malty ale. served ice cold, so it takes a while to open up and is pleasantly sweet with a light hop bite when it does.

jercraigs (10591) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2003
Toronto Festival of Beer 2000 - Balanced but unexeptional beer. It did prove to be a good beer oasis at a work function recently though.

2.3
DuffMan (10451) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2010
On tap at Windmills in Kingston. Deep copper with a thick nitro-looking tan head. Aroma is not good: veggie compost with sweet undertones. Flavours are decent enough-- toffee, vague dark fruits, low bitterness.

3.5
JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2007 Copper colour, thin white lace. Malty caramel toffee aroma with a big shot of berry/cherry fruit. Flavour is also malty and fruity. A bit of spicy hops and a softly bitter finish. Nice.
