Poured from a 12 oz. can. Great brown ale, Really enjoyed the beer.. Poured at a cold temperature with a foamy, lite brown, foamy thick head. Color is an amber color and aroma is malty with cocoa and roast. Great smelling beer. First taste was not what I expected, it was better. One of my favorite new beers that I have tasted. Highly recommended.

harrymel (1448) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottled: unk - fail A: Pours a dark and hazy brown ale with some ruby hues when light penetrates the ruddiness. Single finger of light latte head falls to a broken quilt of the same. Should have more clarity for the style. S: Smells tart with infection. Sour, nearly brett like. Canít really get anything past this issue. T: Yep, infected. Jesus, bitter and baking soda like in flavor. M: Dry like the deserts of Africa. O: horrible. Two sips, then drain. Serving type: bottle 05-27-2011

Pretty good British brown, although I do seem to pick up a bit of tartness that doesnít 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. Flavorís like nose and very weíll 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.
