This is a traditional Northern English Brown Ale that has a nutty malty aroma with a smooth hop finish. The beer is fermented a couple of degrees warmer than our other beers to give it a little more of a fruity winy aroma that is characteristic of the style. Brewed with Pale Ale, Cara-munich, Biscuit, and Chocolate Malts with Kent Goldings and First Gold Hops.

Hand derawn sample at Autumn Festival of Ales - French toast on front, hops on back. Novel, but I’m not sure when I’d want it. Breakfast, maybe.

Ruby body with a white head. Butterscotch aroma, some light malts as well are evident. Thin body, somewhat watery. The taste isn’t bad but a bit bland for the style. Clean ending.

Growler from the brewery. Pours chestnut brown with a one finger tan head. Aroma of sweet, smoked nuts and a mild hoppy spiciness. Flavor follows suit with smokey maltiness dominating, but a definite sprucey hops character is there, along with a mild earthy richness. Moderately thick mouth feel, smoothly carbonated.

Very tasty and very close to and on some days equal to Newcastle Brown Ale

Pours a very dark brown with a thin tan head and a bit of lacing as it goes down. It has a nice nutty smell that mixes with the toasted malt. The taste is of the nuts upfront followed by an odd metallic and acidic flavor. I don’t know if the tap lines were dirty or what but there was a very odd finish to this brew. As this brew warmed, the odd skunky flavor increased and really drew my attention away from all of the nice things that were going on. This was definitely not the smooth nut brown that I would expect.

Had on tap at The Old Toad. Smooth, roasty flavors. Color is a deep brown. Sweet, but not too thick. Overall a good session nut brown but lacking complexity.
