Basic goodness brown ale but cant find anything great in this. Decent brown ale. Some malty notes and the finish is a bit complex dry but hard to describe.

Pours a clear deep amber, close to brown. Head looks creamy and is slightly tanned. Huge malty aroma with lightly toasted malts and caramel and hints of toffee.Taste is malty, caramel and toasted malts again, but it also has a quite refreshing bitterness to it that balances it out nicely and making it very drinkable. Body is close to medium with a medium amount of carbonation.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Slight gusher of bottle and I think this wasn’t as good as it usually is?? Slight aroma of malt and caramel nice dark brown pour with huge head. Fan of the taste (cabonation was off) malty sweet balanced with caramel that is at end and slight hops in middle. Interesting brew
