Clean and light on the palate. Very mellowed out brown ale flavours. Low body is okay because of the low bitterness. Vancouver airport. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Kurt and Erin! Pours a very dark brown with a gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of dark grains and light roast with a slight astringency. Flavor is different with a bit more of a sweet dark grain note, some toffee and a light biscuit note.
