I don't know why the reviews on this are so low, I think this is a good pint of beer. Pours a dark red/brown with a small head but lacing. Smells like sweet malts, some bitterness from the hops. Tastes like sweet malts with a bitter finish, but theres some chocolate malt presence in this one, a little roasty. Smooth, medium carbonated ale, I don't know why people don't like this one.

Very creamy, not my cup of brown. Creamy head. Sharp hop bitterness in finish also good. Some sweet malt,caramel, some nuttiness. Easy drink but not special taste. Found it lager-like, my friend believes it may be the yeast. Believe C'est What nitrotapped without telling us.

Pours a deep brown colour, with a smallish head. Faint malt aroma, slightly fruity, a little toffee/caramel. Taste was a bit disappointing. Not too strong on any flavours. Mild caramel, malt, some fruitiness. Otherwise, quite average. Moderate body, easy drinking. Not something I'd have again though.

Nice chesnut colour, quickly dimishing head, partial film and spotty lace.

Aroma is a two-headed sort of creature. At times fruity and malty, but often smelling harshly of alcohol or chemicals.

Quite thin and brutally metallic when first poured. Softens a bit once it's been in the glass a while. Vaugely fruity.

Overall, very disappointing. Not very many attractive characteristics and some real rough edges.

Had this on tap at the Pacific hotel in Wiarton after a great week playing with the salmon in the bay. Tapped a dark red-brown smallish off white head reduces to a full lace. Not much in the nose departement....very subtle..light wiffs of caramel, grains light fuggles hopping. Had a medium body with nice chewy sweet malt texture fairly rich right to the finish where the citrus from the hops are evident...a very nice well balanced draft brown ale

Good name. Poured an very clear and flat looking amber. The nose was mild and subtle for the most part, light malts. The taste was somewhat interesting but yet bland. Only small hints of roasted malt. Some lighty woody notes and a definite fruitiness of dark plum and semi sweet pears. Overall the body was extremely light if not watery. Flavours fade quickly and leave for a below average experience.

This beer has a great name and excellent marketing -- the tap handle looks like an oil can. With an obvious oil theme, I was expecting something with a lot more body and flavour, and was somewhat disappointed. The beer is a deep reddish brown and had a thin cream head. The aroma was quite mild, with delicate floral hops and a faint nuttiness. Nuttiness carried through into the flavour and was replaced by strong bitterness at the finish. It was surprisingly light bodied, with nothing lingering on the palate.
