Bonanza Brown

Bonanza Brown is another offering from Whitehorse, Yukon's Yukon Brewing. I had a pint on tap at the saloon downstairs in the hotel where my wife and I were staying. It's a pretty, reddish-brown ale. It's clear and topped with a thin, off-white head. I'm not exactly sure what the percentage is, but I'd have guessed that it's about 5.

Bonanza has a slightly sweetish malt aroma that has some nuttiness and a tinge of molasses. All told, it's got a fairly mild nose. The flavour is also mild and quite light-tasting. It has a decent nuttiness and a whiff of sweetness.

I found this to be a serviceable ale, but not a particularly robust or exciting one. It's smooth and drinkable, but fairly low octane.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
