Clear glass bottle

Nice, deep brown color

Sweet malty aroma

Definitely on the sweeter side but not necessarily a bad thing. Malt aftertaste

Sleeman Brown. One of the most popular beer in Canada.

So the look of it. I was a bit disappointed about te look. Very light. Without the light on the glass it looks brown but when u put it on the light it's looks like amber.


The smell of it. Disappointing. Not much it's coming through my nose. A smell of hops it's coming at the end

The taste of it. A bit watery. I would like to have more character to have more ouch on the taste. Presence of hops is there but nothing much on the after taste. It is a pleasant beer to drink, don t get me wrong, goes down very smoothly. But would like to have more flavours to it.

So overall would I recommend it? No, for a brown beer there is much better. I was a bit disappointing. I wish the beer would have more flavour but overall is it not a bad beer at all, it goes down dry smoothly but if you wanna drink a Sleeman get something else.

Date code is F0214 so canned June 2, 2014.

A staple of mine in my younger days. Delivers on its namesake color and has a solid 4 finger head to show for itself. Nutty flavor with some sweet caramel. Decent and good though tame to be sure.
