1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is dominated by cardboard and some mild bready malt. Pours a very clear orange/copper with a thin white head. Flavor follows what was found in the aroma, lots of cardboard, light bready malt. There’s also a noticeable sourness in the finish. Certainly not an "English Brown Ale".
