286/1267) Tracks Brewpub: "New" Old Mill brewed at Tracks Brewpub, Ontario: **; they still refer to it as the dark though it isn't, except perhaps in comparison to their light beer; this one is neither light nor pale but full-on flavourful; they got much closer to Fullers this time out; brown sugary, hoppy nose; dark sugar finish; rather nice;
I went around the corner of the bar to make my notes free of ribbing. Today was the now-traditional regulars' Christmas Eve bash - great fun as always. Being at Tracks is a lot like I imagine visiting Toots Shor's some sixty years ago might have been, but without the celebrities, the athletes, the neck ties and so forth. It's basically a bunch of grown men horsing around.
