Draught sample at Victory. Has grassy-grainy sweet hay aroma, mild raw nuts with dry floral hops. Decent malt aroma with good bittering. Worty with bread dough. Light brown-amber clear with thin off-white slightly lacind head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Starts with doughy bread, raisins and sweet, sour tang. Not much sweetness overall. Mild acidity throughout with nutty dry bitterness. Floral hops in finish. Ascerbic nutty after.

eaglefan538 (2890) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Poured a typical brown-orange color with a normal head and with a touch of lacing (although, nothing impressive there). The flavor was only mildly nutty and was dominated by a caramel type malt. The hops were too strong for this style. The mouthfeel was properly carbonated and medium bodied. Would have another, but there are better brown ales out there. Also had the "cask" version and that one was much more out of character for the style. Served at a warmer temperature and with more carbonation, the hops were much imbalanced with the malts, which isnít my idea of a brown ale (more like an amber ale on cask).
