look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Seems to be the best Cameron's brew I've had, though it still isn't that great.

A: Very dark, only a little head, but it does leave some lace.

S: Touch of dark malt smell.

T: Nothing offensive, but nothing that's really that great. Not a lot of malt flavour, probably uses black patent malt for colour.

M: Light body, mild-to-moderate carbonation.

D: It's drinkable, but there really isn't anything that's making me want more.

Available at the LCBO in a six-pack (versus Cameron's standard nine-pack) under the name Cameron's Dark 266.

Nice deep, dark mahogany brown colour. Moderate head settling to a film, gives good curtains of lace throughout. Handsome looking beer.

Tasty, but gentle throughout. Rather nice malt character on the nose. Roast quite noticeable on the palate, but quite pleasant.

Easy drinking, not as interesting as their Auburn Ale, but worth buying a six to try.

Poured a dark, brown body, with a thin head and little lacing. Roasty aroma, deep, dark and fruity. A pleasant surprise. A quaffable beer. Locally, comparable with Denison's munich dunkel. Cameron's has been quite impressive with their offerings. Very drinkable and flavourful.

Aged one year. Dark, sweet-sour taste, Ok aroma. Aggressive carbonation. Malty including some chocolate there. Midsip bit of roast. Medium mouth feel. A mediocre Camerons typical product. Unsatisfying but better than a national brand. Doug Shoemakers courtesy of Jercraig of Black Oak.
