On tap at the Preserve in Winters.

Pours a deep brown color with a very thin white head.

Aromas are mellow, but pleasant. Notes of cola, brown sugar, roasted nuts and caramel.

Taste is very full flavored for a low ABV beer. Roasted nuts, creamy, with some caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Finish is lightly spicy, with some breadiness, and a crisp grainy finish.

Mouthfeel is nice and full, carbonation is good, low, and has a smooth feel.

Overall, a very nice sessionable mild. Impressive flavor from such a mellow style of beer. Well worth trying. (556 characters)

Pours a thin head on a clear red colored body.
The aroma is a big malty smell. Nice and to the point.
The taste is malty with mild lemon bitterness. Simple but good balance.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
It's a nice ale and easy to drink. (252 characters)

Toronado. Pours a cloudy reddish brown. Little off white head. Kinda foamy but I got a very full pour. Aroma is sorta weak. Mostly just a light caramel malt tone. Needs more spice and general oomph. Taste is mildly sweet. It actually tastes a lot like an okay mild and probably would be better on cask (at the time, I had it confused with Upright Whippersnapper, which is a rye beer). Nice fresh grain note with some toasty highlights. Feel is relatively gentle. Low carbonation. Nice enough finish. This is a pretty nice beer, but I don't get much rye character (again, confusion) and I'd love to find it on hand pump. (619 characters)
