2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear nutty amber with a foamy light khaki head. The aroma kinda has some grainy malty toffee, and little else. Flavor is much the same with just a hint of caramel/cocoa sweetness. Mouthfeel s a little light though. Not a bad beer, just the kind of brown ale that makes me bored of brown ales.
