Aroma: faint and subtle; caramel and biscuity malts. Flavor: average level of bitterness for style but perhaps more sweetness up front; subtle hops.

Poured a brown color at Disney with aromas of light nuts, a touch of sweetness, light chocolate and some earth. Flavors are the same a decent and classic nut brown ale that is pretty tame.

Pour is copper brown, aroma and flavor are both on the sweet side with notes of earth, grain, and slight hops. Sessionable, but boring.

On tap at Seven Bridges for RBWG bus tour. Pours a clear brown with thin beige head and little to no lacing. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, and slight nutmeg spice. Taste follows, slightly dry. Nothing special, but better than Newcastle.
