Pretty good British brown, although I do seem to pick up a bit of tartness that doesn’t belong. Poured at a good temperature with a modest, lite brown, foamy, thick head that soon all but disappears and no lace. Color is an almost clear amber brown with some bubble trails. Aroma is a very fragrant malt, nutmeats, cocoa, toffee, bit of roast. Flavor’s like nose and very we’ll balanced. The off tartness vanishes with a little time. Body/carbonation are about perfect. Finish is like flavor, has a few medicinal qualities that linger, and is overall very drinkable.

Draft 5/13/15 (Brick House Tavern-Tampa)-Pours brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, malt, coffee, and vanilla. Taste the same with some dark fruits coming in. This medium bodied brew is tasty as I am not a fan of Brown Ales.

Great, easy-drinking brown ale. There are a lot of roasted and coffee flavors mixed together, and it works well. It’s easy to imagine drinking a few of these on a cold night.

wolffish (441) - Saint-Donat, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 26, 2016
L’équilibre est tel dans cette bière qu’à part son effervescence plutôt faible, je n’ai que de bons mots. Les ingrédients sont agencés de façon si harmonieuse que rien ne prend trop de place. Très bonne petite canette reçue en cadeau...

Pours a brown from a can. Chocolate notes but not a lot of heavy maltiness. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
