COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brown and caramel malts give this classic British style brown ale a lovely mouth feel and a fragrant, toasty malt aroma.

Oristo (67) - Orinda, California, USA - JAN 7, 2003
A few flaws: weak dissipating head and no lacing, no real nose when it came to the table. Good rich malty taste and soft finish.

Tap. Brown to slightly ruby color. Good malt and caramel flavors with some nuts.

Average brown ale, some burnt caramel. Rather uninteresting.

Looks like there’s some nitrogen in there -- tiny bubbles. Much lighter bodied than what I remember -- thin batch? Tastes a bit wet. Some snap to the hopping.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2000
Caramel and malt nose, fair hop crispness, nutty and nice. A very good brown ale, good with most food.
