This beer is brewed in the northern England tradition with strong malt characters that combine to make a clean lite finish with a nutty flavor.

On tap at the brewery. Murky, pale amber appearance with a tan head. Aroma of nutty malts, earth, light toffee and a hint of caramel. Similar flavor, adding some floral notes, light roast and a hint of herbal hops. Light, thin body. OK.

Very light bodied English brown. Was a little cloudy, but tasted great. Very malt forward with nutty toast flavors.

Nutty brown in color, with a thinnish khaki head. Nice brown ale aroma of earthy brown malts, light cereal grains, chestnuts, and subtle earthiness. Taste was more bitter than I imagine a brown ale being, but it wasn’t a bad thing...kinda livened up my expectations. Taste of earthy moderately bitter hops, chestnuts, brown malt, light chocolate malts, and some grains. Smooth, sweet, tasty with a subtle hop kick to keep you intrigued. Not bad.

On tap at Big Beaver poured a clear amber with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of nuts, bread and a hint of earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, nuts and light earthiness with a smooth earthy finish.
