Notes/Commercial Description:
The beer is 5.2% alc. and offers the palate a balance of dark malt notes with a clean, short bitterness on the finish. The name, 1855, is our way of saluting the great city of Ottawa that has been so good to us.

On tap at Darcy McGee's in Ottawa.

Pours a deep burnished copper, big off-white fluffy head. Sparse webs on the side, good retention. Looks good.

Smells like a good amber ale. Malty, with fragrant floral hops on the side. Touch of toffee, rosewater and coffee crisp. Pretty appealing.

Starts nicely. Brown light-roasted malts giving rich chocolate and roasty notes, before some hop oil bitterness comes in, slightly soapy but with grapefruit edge. Finishes with a slight yeast note, slo a touch of butter. Not bad, but some flaws in there for sure.

Decent body, but a little sharp midway.

Nice start to Ottawa beer for me. Big flavour, well-constructed.

Draft: Poured a clear light brown color ale with a small foamy head with light retention and limited lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt with light sweet nutty notes as well. Taste is a mix between some nutty caramel notes with some semi-dry caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not overly complex and easily drinkable.

Christmas present growler. Thanks Chris! Filled yesterday.

A - Pours a very deep copper colour. Bright. Mild carbonation. Two fingers of light beige head. Film of retention with good spatterings of lace.

S - Caramel, bread, mild hops, mild yeast.

T - Nice sweetness up front with caramel, bread, yeast, cola.

M - Nice carbonation, light to medium body with a sweetness in the finish.

O/D - Nothing overly complex or interesting. A drinkable brown ale, but not something I would seek out. There's an interestingly bland element lingering. The weakest offering I've tried from the local boys.

look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a dull orange-amber, mostly clear although there does appear to be a very slight haziness to it. One finger of creamy looking head reduces quickly to just a ring around the edge, which leaves some moderate lacing if allowed to sit for a few minutes.

S: Sweet caramel malts and a fresh grassy/floral hops nose. There's some bread/biscuit notes in there as well. Nicely balanced and very appealing.

T: Predominately malty with some caramel notes. The complexity present in the nose doesn't come through in the taste. The fresher flavours of the hops present towards the back end, definitely nicely a nice fresh-cut grass and spring flower feel to it. Aftertaste is pleasantly bitter with some lingering malt.

M: Light and effervescent. No noticeable dryness and very smooth.

O/D: Nothing overly assertive about this beer - with is a mark in its favour, ultimately. Well balanced and pleasant to drink - I suspect my freshly opened growler will be empty ere the night is through!

Draft

Appearance - Clear copper colour with a small size fizzy off white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, hops, hay/straw

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste lots of malts and caramel. There is also a fair amount of hops and a bit of a straw/hay taste. The beer finishes with a malty slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall - I enjoyed this beer and will be on the look out for it in bottles. The taste was well balanced and it would make a really good session beer.

Serving type: bottle
