3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Got on tap at the local Old Chicago. Pours brown with light brown head. Not too sweet, not too dry. Has a bit of a nutty aroma. Was hoping the taste would follow, but not much flavor to speak of. Very mild and light. I may have gotten a bad sample as I finished off the keg. Will have to try again.
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. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2017

Very light and sweet for a brown ale. Almost an amber lager with artificial citrus. . rdixon77 (3011) - Georgia, USA - JUL 2, 2016
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. edgallow (4471) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 6, 2015
