3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty good example of the Northern English Brown style. a: light toasty, sweet aroma. Nuttiness at the front. Slightly alcoholic. Subtle hop aroma of English variety. a: Light brown color, relatively low head but with good retention. Creamy off white to tan color. t: Moderate to high malt sweetness. Hints of caramel. Feels a little one dimensional: didnít get the same complexity I found in the nose. Moderately sweet finish. Little toffee, chocolaty. Light diacetyl. p: medium body, lingers a little on the tongue. Moderate carb, no astringency. o: A little too sweet for the style. Would like to see a bit more hop bitterness and more complex flavors.

Aroma is molasses and a hint of wood smoke. Taste is mainly molasses, a little hint of nuts, and something else I canít quite place. This would be great in the fall, but itís pretty damn good right now too.

Pours a translucent copper brown from the can with thin ring of tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of nutty earth and hints of dark chocolate. Taste follows, clean and easy, lingering soy quality. Nice for the style, just not exciting.

One of six beers on a flight at Bru Grill and Market, Lake Forest, Orange County on 21st May 2015. Chestnut red, no head. Malty, sweet and nutty in nature: my sweet tooth liked it a lot. A lot sweeter than any UK brewed Brown Ales I have had, but thatís OK and I enjoyed this.

One of the beers that turned me on to brown ales. Perhaps my favorite brown ale at this point, and I like brown ales.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle. A dark brown ale. Thin tan head. Slight malt aroma. The taste is the highlight. Light on the chocolate, vanilla, almond, a little bit of an earthy flavor. Slightly sweet, nice full mouthfeel. One of my favorite brown ales
