3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a rugged semi-dark brown color with a fingerís worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a moderate pace. Subtle wisps of lace.
The aroma had a crisp sweet nutty malt embracing a nice toffee and caramel backbone. Some earthiness and a crisp balancing grassy hoppiness.
The flavor tried to blend between the earthiness and the malts, but the malts end up taking a good lead. Gentle malty aftertaste. Crisp sweet nutty finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation.
Overall, nice English styled brown ale that I could have again.
