4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) What a surprise! A big punch of roasted malts and a lovely hot of green hoppyness in this that makes it from the first mouthful a bit of a pleasant experience. Unfortunately the bottle I have was right at the edge of it’s "enjoy by" date. I sit here thinking that the fresh version must be a real eye-popper of a drink.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (22oz $5): pours a clear ruby brown with one finger light tan head. I got very little aroma. Tasted is subtle toasted malt with slight bitterness. Body is between light and medium as is carbonation. Very drinkable and relatively inexpensive. Could be a regular, but wish they had them in 12oz.

Subdued aroma is followed by an enjoyable sour-malt flavour and subtle bitter finish. A good example of the style.

Brown ales are usually a bit bland but this one isnt too bad. Toffee biscuit rich malty taste. Minimal hops. Good winter beer. Well made.
