This brown ale performs well. It has a generous body, full of caramel complexity, nuttiness of roasted and unroasted type, and is creamy. I don’t like the backend however, as the finish on my palate isn’t as clean as I would like....damn english hops

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep ruby hue with a foamy tan head. Aroma of caramel syrup and chocolate. Taste is sweet upfront with a roasted chocolate and caramel flavor that lingers dark and slightly smokey without too much bitterness. Very well balanced. Palate is neutral. Very drinkable.
