Fairly thick with a medium tan head and dark drown body. I love the malty/sweet finish and no bitterness. Nice amount of spice in there to make it a good brown ale. This is a smooth beer! If you like Newcastle, then give this one a try, you’ll probably like it as well."

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a darker amber with basically no head. Nose is woody with a touch of caramel and just a touch of dust. Flavor is a bit woody with sweet tones. Robust and thick with flavor. Off the flavor alone I would say this is worth trying. Feel is nice on the liquid and good with the carbonation too. Extremely drinkable. Off the flavor alone, worth going for. This on-tap might be interesting. On cask...who knows.

Bottle. Pours clear coppery amber with a fluffy off-white head. Floral, nutty aroma. Light body and medium carbonation. Just a dash of brown sugar in the taste, not a lot else going on. Crisp finish. Probably a great beer to wash down whatever you’re eating.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

Bottle. Nuts and mild alcohol in this predominately malty aroma. Vague fruitiness with some caramel. Dark amber body with a creamy, rocky off-white head. Crisp, slightly hot taste, bitter but not really flavorful. Indeterminate blandness. Body hovers on the lighter side of medium.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Leunig’s Cafe as "Leunig’s Ale". Dusty grain, straw, and old barn aroma. Mild nutty notes and a bit of stale coffee. Light neutral fruit and a bit of dark honey. Dark coppery clear with foamy off-white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium carbonation. Typical brown ale, nutty malt profile with bit of carbonic tang. Very mild neutral fruitiness and a bit of hoppy finish. Mild nutty after but fairly clean. Fine with food.
