On tap at the brewpub.

A: Served a reddish-brown color with a small tan head that fades quickly to no lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malt, some chocolate and spice.

T: tatste of roasted malt with a bit of chocolate and spice. Mild bitterness and a dry finish.

F: Fairly light body, a bit smooth but has a few rough edges.

O: Not too bad, but could be a bit more robust.

Light roast aroma, chocolate, a touch of sweetness. Slightly earthy.

A dark red-brown colour. Small, tan head. Poor head retention. Acceptable.

This isn't bad. I get some light roast and chocolate malt, a hint of earthy hops and a fairly clean flavour. There is a slight twang to it which isn't great. Fairly dry finish.

Fairly light body with moderately-high carbonation. It's a bit too much and a fuller, richer body would be nice.

Definitely the most drinkable of this brewery's beers that I've tried so far. Decent.
