Draft... Mostly clear, caramel-colored ale. The aromatics are of fruity esters and sweet, medium-roast malts. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with tingly carbonation. The malty flavor presents toffee and toasted nuts - sweet, but not offensively so. Finishes up much the same; malty and sweet. A nice beer, but it just doesn’t really look, smell or taste like a brown ale. “Amber Ale” is how I would categorize this one.
