Smooth easy drinking brown ale. On point stylistically. Light enough to drink during hot months and warm enough for the winter months.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From bottle with 9/8 expiration date.
Despite my best pour efforts, it pours brown, no head. Just blah. It looks like a light Folgers. Blah.
Aroma is a lot better. Itís very malty. I also smell chocolate and toffee, and maybe a hint of coffee. The malts are maybe medium roasted. A little nutty.
Taste falls flat. Itís sweet and malty. Itís a little chocolate, a little coffee, but not much. Again, taste falls flat. It has no body, itís super watery.
Mouthfeel is poor. It has no body, and thatís really the thing that hurts it the most. Itís like drinking water. It might have a slight wet finish.
Overall, I really should consider giving this another shot, but I donít think it will make much difference. Based on this one bottle, I wouldnít suggest it. It just needs some body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I had this from a longneck bottle. The aroma is distinctive, balanced, and malty. The flavor is malt forward, medium bodied, and the British hops shine. The modest bittering is lovely and it is the balanced achieved by that which makes this an exceptional beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It poured a translucent brown with a small head into a shaker glass. Aroma was roasted malt with a bit of dark chocolate/coffee flavoring. It was easy to drink and fairly well balanced.
