look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

650 ml bottle purchased for under $5 CDN from LCBO. Served well-chilled into an Alexander's Keith's pint glass.

Appearance - Solid 1.5 fingers of ivory head, leaving some sticky lacing on the sides of its glass during its rapid retreat. Clear dark honey brown color, with a few copper hues thrown in. Little carbonation is present.

Smell - Nuts, especially walnuts and almonds, with a slightly chocolaty undercurrent. Faint floral note bursting with energy. But overall nuts are the star here.

Taste - Nuts again with a slightly spicy earthiness that takes over and doesn't let go. Well ingrained mild hop flavors blend well with the malts in play here. Pretty tasty overall

Mouthfeel - Watery and a touch on the thin side, this is more noticeable due to the lack of carbonation. Medium- light body with a moderately dry finish. I was expecting a little more distinction here.

Overall - A tasty nut brown ale that has good aromas and flavors just is lacking abit win terms of texture and feel. Still a pretty good brew from this Ontario Brewery that has quickly gained my attention with my first couple of experiences.
