This is just about everything you’d expect from a Brown Ale, but with very little to criticize. Nutty, toffee, and brown sugar. Medium bodied and well balanced.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 28, 2013
A - Pours a chestnut brown body with a fleeting cream head that forms a thin collar. S - Sweet grain, oak wood, vanilla, raw walnuts, toasted sweet bread. T - Toffee/caramel malt rounded out with notes of nutmeg, vanilla, oak and nuts. Hops take on a grassy/peppery role. M - Light to medium body, well carbonated, creamy texture. Very tasty. The malt is nice and sweet with plenty of nutty flavors going on. The hops add a nice spice. Just a well rounded Brown Ale. Very impressed! Serving type: bottle 01-10-2012
