3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep mahogany with a nice off-white head that leaves soapy lacing. The nose is of barnyard silage and lightly sweet caramel. Caramel and sourdough flavors finish with a medium–light grain. The mouthfeel is round with a light body and soft carbonation. Very decent session brown ale here. All of the complexity is provided in an easy quaff. Delicious.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, light beige head, over a clear brown (SRM 25) body......nose is light with cocoa, chocolate, toffee/caramel, hints of coffee, no esters, minimal hops........taste is light cocoa, chocolate, hints of toffee/caramel, slight roasted coffee, minimal esters, light herbal hop bitterness to finish, dry throughout......mouth feel, light of medium body, no astringency, soft carbonation. This is a nice rendition of a Brown Ale, with pleasant complexity in both aroma and flavor. The malts are dominant in both aroma and flavor, which is entirely appropriate for Northern English Brown.
