Really nice brown, malty and a little nutty with just the right bitter bite to offset the caramel sweetness.

Aroma is a light earthiness, pinecone, clove, straw and caramel. Taste is sweet roasted malts and caramel. Balance quite well with a medium deep hop profile that is clove ,citrus and a very slight funk. Appearance is a clear amber with a medium pearl head that retains quite well.

Not a terrible brown. Pours a dark murky amber with a thin beige head. The nose is nutty, toasted malts, light cocoa, a bit of floral and spice hop. Well balanced but a little bland for me.
