341ml bottle.

This beer pours a clear, dark bronzed amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, tightly foamy beige head, which leaves some decent tree branch lace around the glass as it duly recedes.

It smells of biscuity caramel malt, some mild nuttiness, and dusty, earthy hops. The taste is semi-sweet grainy, lightly toasty caramel malt, ethereal oily bar nuts, a faint drupe fruitiness, a bit of dry black licorice, and earthy, weedy hops.

The bubbles are quite tame, the body on the lee side of medium weight, and generally rather smooth. It finishes off-dry, the malt's heft lessening a fair bit, getting more bready, and the hops holding steady in their relaxed state.

Mild?!!! There is certainly something mild about this (with apologies to the Simpsons)! Well flavoured, and more or less simple in its application - multi-hued malt, just enough hops, and a lower than Canadian Standard ABV. Worthy for an unthinking session, maybe, but far from an 'instant favourite', even though I do appreciate the Canadian spelling in that last bit.

Nice basic winter warmer that really is a cross between a British Mild and a British Brown Ale. The beer is full flavoured and has a nice dry finish that works well with the style. No spices but rather a solid beer that will find a spot in my winter fridge.

341mL bottle poured a deep amber/chestnut color with modest off-white head and some spots of lacing. Aromas of caramel and roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts and some lingering bitterness in the finish. A decent beer with nice carbonation and a light body.
