On draught, three finger head, frosted glass
Taosty, bready malt, with hop finish for taste.
Smells of bread
Overall, not a bad beer, but its moderate mouthfeel leaves it lacking.
Seems to be an ok beer. I haven't been a fan of brown ales ever, but this beer does not lean me towards them any further.

Pours a very nice translucent dark brown, however my pour had very minimal head. Smells malty with some caramel hints. Good flavor of deep complex malts however it feels very thin in the mouth with very little carbonation, for me this is the biggest downfall of the beer.

Greetings from Canada. Pours up to a fizzy buff head and clear light brown color. Aroma is a pleasing blend of toasty, sweet malt and a hint of hops. Flavor is a complex blend of with a toasted malts, caramel, nuts, butterscotch and enough nondescript hops to balance the whole thing out. Mouthfeel is light. Overall, I really liked this beer and would have some on hand at all times if I could. Also noteworthy was that this beer was sampled in Calgary where it was likely just days from the brewery so it was very "fresh" tasting.

Appearance - Light brown/copper colour with an average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an averahe amount of carbonation and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes.
Smell - Malts, caramel/butterscotch, hops
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel and some light hops. There is also a light amount of fruit esters and a nuttiness. It ends with a malty sweet aftertaste.
Overall - Definitely the best beer I've ever had from Big Rock. It's very drinkable and has a nice balanced taste. I won't rush out to buy more, but I'm glad I gave it a try. It's along the same lines as the Creemore Springs beer.
