2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Bull & Bush. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Water, fruity esters, and dirt on the nose. Some sweet toast, bread, and a bit of toffee. Flavor is just kind of bland, but okay. Toffee, bread, and toast. Dirt/earth, fruity esters, and water. Bland, but at least it’s not offensive.

Draft. Pours a thin off white head, with minimal lacing, over a clear brown (SRM 25) body......nose is light toffee.caramel, light cocoa, chocolate.....taste is cocoa, chocolate, nuttiness, slight toffee/caramel, finishing with a light bitterness......mouth feel light of medium, slightly astringent, carbonation low. This is a mild take on a Northern English Brown Ale. It is, overall, rather simple in its construction with minimal complexity, but it does fall into the style. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint on tap at Euclid Hall in Denver. Sweet chocolate notes in the aroma with some moderate roast. Lightly metallic. Transparent dark amber-brown body with a medium, fizzy khaki-beige head. Starts with sugary chocolate maltiness. Becomes a little toasted in the middle. Finishes with more sweetness. Pretty good and flavorful. A bit sugary and sweet, though.
