Tasting at Matt’smcberko (19869) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2017
Dark brown color. Stale chocolate aroma. Roasted malts, light chocolate, a bit puckery, with too much bitterness in the final.
Not very good.
355mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out stale bready malts, some earth and toasted caramel. Flavour is better, with a decent blend of hops and roast. Not very deep, but it’s reasonable enough. Oakes (19426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 5, 2017
Muddy, thin head. Dull aroma is mostly phenolic, but with a touch of nuttiness. Moderate bitterness, a bit thin, and this hasn’t got either much body or much malt complexity. It’s been a while since I had anything from this brewery, but honestly this isn’t to the level I remember from them. Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2013
A reddish copper ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, weird grassy malt with light off notes, roasted character. In mouth, light watery nutty malt with grassy hops, light chocolate, OK. Sammy (13000) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2014
I had this both on tap and on cask at The Only café. More mouthfeel and lacy on tap. Strange aroma for both versions. A sweet brown with some mild IPA thrown in.

2012-02-25. Mahogany red-brown body, modest tan and and nice lace on the glass. Flavour is interesting, modest hoppy bitterness over a mild brown ale like base, lingering leafy green hops. Pleasant, very well balanced. I would like more assertive hops but you might lose a bit of the drink-ability that way. 7+ Fairly mild aroma, light green hops, muted malt. 6+ Average palate suits it. 7/4/7/3/15 On tap at Volo, Toronto
Deep brown pour with a tight white head. The aroma is slightly hoppy with a touch of soft malt Fairly crackery and a little bit earthy as well. Soft and a touch of lingering bitterness. Pretty decent actually. mabel (10004) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2013 [4307-20120225] Tap. Mild dusty grains aroma. Slightly hazy, dark mahogany red body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Muted dusty fruit grains flavour. Medium body. Simple, good. (6/3/6/3/13) 3.1

(@ Bar Hop, Toronto, ON)
Draught at Bar Hop Customer Appreciation Night, Jan. 31. Pours a deep dark orange-amber with a small lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of lightly toasted malt, nuts, leafy hops and a hint of chocolate. Pleasant malty flavour along with leafy hops, some roastiness and notes of coffee. Average to medium bodied. Surprisingly good for this brewery, keep it up. Radek Kliber (7501) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - APR 20, 2013
Can 473 ml
Aroma: solid compilation of darker them with aromatic hop variety. Hint of chocolate, pit with garden zest.7+
Look: poured as clear dark amber with fairly dense almost creamy off white top. Sparse lace presented. 4-
Taste: lower carbonation. Strong earthy, woody notes typical to brown ale yet with bit more depth than most. Slight touch of zest on side. Drinkable , satisfying approach. Nice brewing.
