A- The beer pours a murky brown color that resembles cold coffee almost. The head is a light fuzzy style that disappears rather quickly into a patchwork of super tight bubbly film over the beer. This one is hard to tell what the carbonation looks like but the lacing is modest at best....just a few small patches of foam that quickly slide back into the glass.

S- Heavy caramel/toffee right upfront, with heavy tones of sweet malt, yeast, bread/biscuit as well. The middle is of cooked brown sugar and slight maple, while the finish is of mellow, yet lingering hop bitterness and fresh barley and/or even oat grains.

T- Ok, there is a little bit happening here on the palate! Very strong nutty flavors, with caramelized brown sugar, barley wort, toffee, slight coffee milk chocolate, bread and yeast that lingers. Earthy gourds such as slight pumpkin and perhaps some creamy butternut squash....very interesting...very suitable for the fall season! The finish has just enough hop bitterness to refresh the palate but it is very muted....

M/O- Medium bodied and tight, yet zingy carbonation make this a very drinkable beer, but it would most likely fill the belly up quickly! Would go well with a stew or beef barley soup....alcohol is well hidden...most flavorful an ale....I would drink this again for sure and recommend this hearty BC Brown Ale!

I really enjoy this beer. I'm a fan of brown ales, tall trees and Revelstoke, so enjoying this beer is a "no-brainer". It looks nice, showcases plenty of nut and caramel flavours, and is very easy on the palate. I wouldn't walk 500 miles for it, but given the price and quality, I will always buy it when and where it is available.

My favourite beer. The smoothest Brown Ale I've found. First tasted it on tap at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Have bought it in 700 ml bottles from stores in BC and Alberta and 350 ml cans directly from the Brewery.
