The beer poured an amber copper colour with a fairly thin, off-white head that dies quite quickly, leaving a nice amount of lacing along the glass.
The aroma is rather weak with some graininess, a hint of nuttiness and with a faint molasses note on the nose. The hoppiness is subtle and not overstated with a rather nice taste. The initial hop sweetness lends to a slightly bitter finish, but remarkably smooth with a faint caramel flavour.
The mouthfeel is about average with a medium body which lends to a very drinkable beer.

Light Brown/Amber Color. Very Light color for a Brown Ale.
Smell was metal, sweet, minerals. Its a faint smell and not very appealing.
Taste was bland. Slight malt flavor maybe a little hops dryness but overall just very bland.
Mouthfeel was average with high carbonation.
Overall this is a dissapointing beer. I expected flavor and got a bland beer, not bad tasting just bland. Not sure how this one sells when Big Rocks Traditional Ale is a good Brown Ale.

This is a very bland beer
Four finger head, ruby red in color
Smells: minerals, grain, and hops
Taste: malt, biscuity, toasty, hoppy, with a warming finish
Overall, this is a forgettable beer from a good brewery. Try the traditional ale.

355ml can poured into a pint glass.
A - Pours a maple-copper color with a small, soapy beige head with pretty good retention, but no lacing.
S - Aroma is mainly light malt with some sweetness. A touch of caramel malt and leafy hops just peak through. Strangely metallic.
T - Follows the nose closely, maybe a bit more toffee/caramel presence, but very little. A touch of hops lingers in the finish along with the aforementioned metallic feel.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation, although it's a touch fizzy. It definitely has a bit more body to it than I had expected, but nothing substantial.
D - Although this is a step above the average macro-lager, it's a far cry from a real craft brown ale. Just another Big Rock product that caters to the pseudo-craft beer audience and entry-level beer drinkers; and as much as that makes me sound like a snobby elitist, it's true.
