Spearhead has been brewing beer since 2011 and currently offers three labels. Spearhead likes to use unusual ingredients and brewing methods to make all-natural craft beer in small batches in its Toronto Brewery.
Pours a cloudy dark amber almost mahogany colour. Head is very thin light beige in colour and dissipates immediately. The cloudiness is probably a by product of the beer being unfiltered.
The beer smells very malty and a little yeasty, reminiscent of fresh biscuits. There is also a smell that is plum or date, along with dried fruit.
The beer is very thin and the carbonation is light.
Brewed as a unique American Brown Ale the Moroccan Brown is brewed with dates, figs, raisins and cinnamon, which all blend together to to make a distinct set of flavors. I find the beer tastes of plum, brown sugar, and dried fruit. I find this beer very sweet for a brown ale. The Moroccan Brown is tastes very malty.
Spearhead has created a unique Brown Ale and while I can’t drink a 6 pack in one sitting they make a great after dinner beer or pair well with grilled beef or chicken.
