4oz on tap at the brewpub. Good toasty malt, kind of spicy. Some nuttiness, mild caramel malt. Definitely drinks like an English-style brown. Moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter taste. Mildly astringent. Clear red, slight camber color. Thin off-white head, leaving great thicker lace. Medium-plus body. Kind of slick texture. Kind of crisp lighter carbonation. A pretty reasonably solid english-style brown ale. Classically styled.
