2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
in the bottle. looks like a coca-cola. not much a head, what’s there has big bubbles and dies quickly. Aroma of diacyl. finishes with a little bit of a tongue bitterness. Medium carbonation. Overbearing chalky flavor. This style of beer seems to consistently for people who want to drink a beer of style and distinction, but don’t have the tastebuds for it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, light brown body, big, creamy, fuzzy head.
Aroma:nice and nutty, maybe woody, too, touches of cocoa, perhaps...
Taste: very mild, small, no, no hops, good malt, solid body, but ultimately thin. Little texture, too, with a scant finish, nothing stands out, nothing really pleases, either. Which, darn it, is what I look for in a brew, not just inoffensive drinkability, which this provides aplenty. Seems to fall into the "mild ale" style of English brown ale, and that should be warning enough for me. Perfectly ordinary, this is, and that makes it a bit of a let-down, for I did enjoy their porter pretty well and still look forward to more.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nuts, caramel. It's Brown. Moderately sweet flavor becomes a lightly bitter finish. Somewhat sour aftertaste. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: nutty and brown...that's pretty much it.
