Dragon's Breath Original Real Ale

Dragon's Breath comes from the Kingston Brewing Company, out of Kingston, Ontario. I enjoyed a pint of this tasty cask conditioned ale on tap at the brewpub. It's listed at 6% alcohol and arrived a darkish copper colour crowned, just a mite hazy, with a thick layer of creamy off-white foam.

D.B. has a mild, malty aroma with some brown sugar sweetness. It has a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. It tastes mild, and moves from malty to bitter.  There are brown sugar and caramel notes.

Dragon's Breath is none too shabby, but I'd like a bit more flavour, particularly on the bitter side of the equation. It's pleasantly easy drinking, and I dig the 6% alcohol.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.

(Note: I took a photo, but it was too dark in the bar. It's pretty much inscrutable.)
