Burnt sienna with creamy off white head. Smells nutty and malty, some caramel malts as well. Taste is more of the same, mixed with some light hops. Medium bodied. Pleasantly surprised.

I really wanted to like this more than I did. In fact the flavors are quite good, I just felt this was a bit too watery. Hop and malt flavors are nice with a caramel bite this has. Besides the watery-ness it’s a pretty good brown.

Cask@GBBF 05’. Not too bad, malty and sweetish to start. Nutty for sure, with touches of caramel. Some aroamtic hops in the finish give it another dimension. Some subtle lychee. A very pleasant brown ale, in the American style.

On tap at GBBF ’05. A bit warm and flat looking by the time I arrived, but even so. Nice enough nutty ale. Some warm choc, with a little bit of sweet hop to finish. Alright.
