When it comes to this beer it's all about finding a good six pack or 12 pack. If you get a new six or 12 pack that just got put on the shelf you are in luck. I loved this beer. The smell can be skunky. The taste is nutty and kinda of caramel like. Honestly I don't know why I like this beer so much. It's an easy beer to get drunk off of and it's also a good beer just to have a few of. I rated it pretty eye for my opinion. I think people should at least try this.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.
A - Poured a very clear reddish copper color. Decent enough head that retreats to lacing.
S - Very pronounced European hop note with little malt aroma.
T - Bitter hops with some hint of malt.
M - Medium body with a dry finish.
O - I honestly thought I was drinking a Heineken that someone had colored brown. This really isn't what I expect from a Brown Ale - not say it was bad - just not what I expected.

500 ml can purchased from LCBO for $2.90 CDN. Served rather cold into a pint glass.
Appearance - Mostly clear brown beer with lots of bubbles. 2 fingers of head with only so-so retention. Red hues in the beer and some trace lacing.
Smell - Mild malts and some light grassy aromas. Not much else, and this beer was somewhat metallic smelling.
Taste - Light cherry flavors, Nice blends of caramel and toffee malts. Also some bready characteristics on the palate.
Mouthfeel - Smooth and rich and slight syrupy in the way the beer clings to the inside of your mouth.
Overall - A good beer, and very accessible too, but by no means a world beater or even something I'd regularly pick up.
