COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An English-style brown ale that's dark in color but light in body. The combination of malts makes it smooth with a chocolate finish.

Decent pint and deff on the malty side. a bit muddy looking but is dismissed by being a good beer. reminds me a few English beers I have had and I would like to have this out of cask if it ever happened.

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent amberish brown with foamy light beige head. Smells of malt, chocolate, and some roast. Tastes like it smells with a thin but solid mouthfeel. Not bad.

phaleslu (5869) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Draft at the Asheville tasting room. Pours a brownish amber color with no head. Notes of toasted malts, nuts, tobacco and other leaves. Very simple. Maybe a hint of chocolate. Light-bodied, with a dry, toasty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good brown ale.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Taster on tap at Barley’s during RBWG. Clear red brown color. Minimal khaki head. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly soft texture. Lightly slick. Nice chocolate, nutty notes. Light earthy hop. More bitter than sweet. Decent brown ale, but doesn’t really stand out. Aroma is nice, though, and lingers somewhat in the finish.

2014 RBWG Draft at the brewery tasting room. Clear brown with ruby highlights. Aroma of toast and malt. The flavor has light malt sweetness. Nutty and light toast. O.K.
