Nicely done but light for the style. Think of it as a gateway beer.
Notes: Dundee brewing is a sort of boutique offshoot of North American Brewing Company which is much better known as the Genesee Brewing Company that produces Genesee beer and 12 Horse Ale as their mainstay products. Dundee did produce a few slightly better than horse piss products when they first started out- some mass produced watery beers that were dressed up as microbrews.
This practice has thankfully stopped and they are now producing some interesting beers of specific styles ,which while not stand outs or radical examples of the styles are well made, if slightly lighter versions of the styles they represent.
Appearance: Clear, lovely dark brown with nice small bubbles in the head
First Impression: Nice nuttty and malty smells. Smells quite inviting and promising
Taste: Nice silky mouthfeel, slightly light in body compared to some of this style.
Bottle: Standard brown beer bottle with anthropomorphic squirrel in Smoking Jacket smoking a pipe on label
Other:Brewed year round
Final Thoughts: A nicely done beer with few faults if a bit on the light end of the style.
