Beautiful brown. Smells of nuts. Sweet and malty. A tad too sweet for me. Very tasty. Thanks Ryan Arp.

Bottle. Caramel malt aroma with a little bit of roast as well as some nutty character. Pours dark caramel brown colored with a thin light brown head that has some retention and excellent lacing. Starts with roasted caramel malt flavors with a bit of a watery mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with nutty character to balance out the malt some. Decent brown, but a little light to me.

Draft. Light brown color. Aroma is weak at best, maybe weak nuts. Flavor has weak nuts, grain flavors. Watery body, thin finish.

Very light and sweet for a brown ale. Almost an amber lager with artificial citrus. .

Pretty average brown. Pretty light and drinkable. Nothing stood out, but not bad either.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/2016. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish brown color with a 1-2 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, plum, pear, apple, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/roast malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, plum, pear, apple, and herbal/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/spicy/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/chocolate, and herbal/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/roast malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly creamy/bready, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice English brown ale style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/bready/roast malt and light-moderate fruity yeast/earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
