COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the northern style of an English ale. This light brown ale has a nice caramel and toasted malt flavor, combined with a fresh hoppy aroma that is slightly fruity. This is nicely complimented by a subtle bitterness that rounds out the palate.

Pretty decent offering from Sprecher. I don’t know how they got a head like that in the picture because mine poured a very minimal one that dissipated quickly. Aroma is malty with some caramel notes along with some fruity (mostly apple) notes as well. Almost no bitterness whatsoever. Finishes a bit sweet with not to much lingering on the palate. Just another average ale in the end though.

amber-brown color. thin head, mild malty taste with a very slight hop bitterness in the finish. feels like a weak mild or a bland brown.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 14 Oct, 02 - (7,2,7,2,13 - 3.1) Brown color with a quickly evaporating light tan head. Mild malt and light citrus aroma. Light brown sugar flavors with a touch of toastiness. A bit watery and sprity in mouthfeel. Finishes with an of bitterness. Noting exciting. Rerate - Did not have the citric components and much smoother on the palate. In fact it was the palate that brought me back to rerate. As I tried it again I found the body to quite smooth and silky and thought that it deserved at least a 4. Found it to be a much better version that the the one in 2002.

Medium-brown color, fairly clear and transparent, medium lasting head. Malty slightly nutty aroma; really lovely buttery nutty rich flavor, wonderful mouthfeel and ending; one of the best brown ales I’ve had lately, super-super drinkable.

It’s textured oddly, I’ll give you that, but the big malty taste of this beer is special - toasty, warm, and fruity (cherries).

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2003 This beer didn't settle too well with me. Lots of malt flavor, but none of it is really good. The aftertaste leaves your mouth pretty foul too. Tastes a lot like their amber ale, but not quite as good on the finish.
