On tap. Poured a dark brown with a tan head. Malty and nutty aroma and tastes. Average brown ale. Sammy (12604) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2005
very drinkable session ale. I seem to have enjoyed it far better than people in 2003 and 2004. So perhaps they have tinkered with it. Rich malt with some bitterness. Dark brown and lace.
