COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic English Brown Ale, smooth with a full body. The grist bill contains a bit of chocolate malt giving this beer a slightly sweet character and is properly balanced with the right amount of Challenger and Fuggle hops.

4 oz sample at Churchkey. Cask. Clear dark amber, bubbly large head. Aroma is nutty, butter, cream. Taste of mild nutty malt, bread. Iím not a huge fan of cask beers usually but this one is pretty good, itís not overly thing, but still thinner than I am used to obviously.

Location: On tap at the Pratt Street Ale House, 9/6/09

Aroma: Caramel malts mostly, some nuttiness
Appearance: Brown color, dark beige head
Flavor: Similar to the nose, malty up-front, and a bit of hops in the finish 6/7
Palate: Medium-body 3/4
Overall Impression: Found this to be a decent brown, the hops in the finish improved the flavor and added some balance to the all malt nose. A decent beer.
