Bottle. Sweet aroma of ripe fruits like dates and cherries. Golden redbrown colour with light brown head. Flavour with some roasted malt and liquorice and a dry finish.

Aroma of grassy hops upon cracking open the bottle. Smelled again and got a bit of nutty malt. Upon tasting, the malt is really on display here with the hops rounding it out nicely. There is more sweetness on the front end of the flavor than I was expecting. The hop flavor is apparent, but well balanced. I love this and will definitely be getting it again. I might even say this is better than Bell’s Best Brown Ale.

Bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma is cheap chocolate and dark breads. Flavor is sort of limp and coarse with lightly roasted barley and some caramel malt floating atop a watery mouthfeel. Needs more body for sure.

Not a fan of browns. They always fall short. This one wasnt bad. Nothing of note. However it is a solid beer overall

Bottle poured a brown in color with a covering of tan head that retained a ring on the glass. Aroma has rich brown malt, light hops, and some earth. Mouth feel is medium with nice coating and medium low carbonation. Flavor gets rich on the malt, mild roast, lightly bitter, and a pinch of stale coffee.

Bottle shared with McTaps. Huge disappointment as this one seemed to be dull, just with a bit malt and in the aroma. Became better with higher temperature but still no good points in here. Simple, below average.

After liking other brown ales a lot O had some big hopes for this one. The looks are alright: Medium brown colour, low head and medium body. But the taste is disappointing because it is just too thin and lacks deepness. It has hints of bitter hops, nuts, sour almonds and copper. Too bitter and thin.
