Brown, some white persistant foam. Bread, nuts, caramel. Medium sweetness. A typical brown ale, rather mild, therefore not too exciting but enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very nice chocolate aroma. Som toffe is in the aroma as well.
Brown hazy colour
Chocolatey and malty taste. Could have done with more bitternes
Light body, average carbonation dry texture. To light body for a brown ale
Despite some short comings it is a nice enough brown ale
