Bottle at Ontario Brewing Awards. Deep amber pour. Off-white head. The aroma is sweet and a little bit chewy. A touch of caramel and some sweet fruity character. Lightly earthy with a touch of fruit. Lingering estery character. Pretty nice really.

Nice swing top bottle from LCBO. Pours an average amount of foamy head but dissipates to a very thin coating. Has a dark amber appearance, somewhat of a rusty hue. Weak lacing. Aromas of resin hops, light honey notes, malts and nuts. Flavours of roasted malts, nutty and sweet toffee notes with a touch of honey to accentuate the sweetness. It’s very subtle though. Almost like brown sugar in the finish. Also some dried fruit notes. Full bodied and somewhat lively carbonation. The sweetness in the flavour is a bit of a turnoff for me though, just a tad much. Not bad overall though.

My biggest beef with these guys is their typical light beer strength/ premium imported price/ sub par taste combination. This one is a hit. Local honey, balanced flavour and I don’t have to drink 12 to feel better about buying local/myself.

Sweeet, malty aroma. Clear amber colour. Flavours of burnt caramel and nuts with a light smokey finish. Medium body with a lively carbination. Pleasant enough.

Pours dark amber with a small off white head. Aroma is honey and malts. The smoke flavour mixes well with the honey and malt. The bitter taste was a surprise considering the aroma was so sweet.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2016 Can. Copper-brown with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavour of a sweet-leaning brown ale - roasted malt, toasted nuts, caramel, raisin, light grassy hops - with pleasant a hint of honey. A touch too sweet for my personal taste, but still a nice ale.

Lots of honey. 40lbs used to brew 1 batch. Nice and malty with subtle smoke flavour. Pours dark brown wih nice lacing. Honey is very present! Yummy

Pours a reddish coppery colour, with a very thin off-white head. Aromas start off like musky honey, but then there is a grass meets funk thing going on that my nose finds offensive. Kind of like burnt vegetation, but it’s hard to describe. Tastes are an improvement, with light honey, orange candies and sweet caramel. I had this one in 2013 but couldn’t remember it. I can now say I’d never buy this again

The aroma is bitter and boring but the colour and taste are quite nice. It has a smooth smokey taste with a caramel finish

500 mL bottle. Pours medium brown with a touch of off white head. Toasty malts, mild caramel, some earthy hop, a little pear/apple esters. Light to moderate body with average carbonation. Off dry and balanced. Innocuous.
