A: The pour is almost brown, perhaps dark amber, with a nice khaki head on it.

T: Heavy on the toasted malts with a slight nuttiness. Sweet toffee undertones as well as a little bit of caramel. Lots of bread flavor with a mild roast flavor.
M: Medium in body with a smooth, medium carbonation.
O: Was expecting more of an English brown ale, but was pleasantly surprised to get a mild. Nice smooth flavors that are pleasant and easy to enjoy.
