Bottle. Poured a nice brown with a fair sized, fizzy off white head. Aroma reminded me of toasty caramel malt. The flavor is sweetish, carmel, with the slightish hop finish to take out some of the sweetness. Long finish, medium to full bodied with an almost creamy texture, very carbonated. I am a hop head, but Bellís is perhaps the best brewer I have run across. I donít think they can make a bad beer. This is a very good brown ale.

A pleasant brown ale with just a touch of sourness at the end of the sip. Relatively light bodied, the pour I got didnít have much head. A nice beer for a soft drizzly fall day.

One of the best Brown Ales I have ever tasted. No surprise with the title then. Smooth Carmel, deep calm, pleasant tone, warm body. Hard to drink just one.

Great Brown Ale! Nice nutty, roast flavor. For some reason the carbonation really jumped out at me and I liked it with such a deep earthy flavor. Fantastic from start to finish!

Bottle from local store. Description is dead on. Rich malty taste but finishes very dry and smooth. Very good offering from Bells, one of my favorite breweries.

Dark brown-amber color. Great head with good lacing. Weakish nutty smell, very good taste. Hops on the nose a little but taste is mostly malty, nutty. Very good brew.
