Very sweet aroma, can also detected roasted malts, with a dark pour. Creamy smooth nutty taste, somewhat balanced. I think like most people rated here, not bad, but not great either. WVHouseofBeer (1081) - West Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Pours a clear brown color with a small khaki head that disappears quickly. Light aroma of roasted nuts, caramel and bread. Flavors of roasted malt but with strange metallic taste that I wasn’t a fan of. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Overall this is a so-so beer.....I’d rather just have a Newcastle.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate brown color with a light tan head and a touch of lacing. Head falls down pretty quickly. The nose is a bit of toasted malt along with some nuts, chocolate, and some earthy and floral hops. The taste is a bit of toasted bread and light chocolate. Good, healthy body with good carbonation. Drinks pretty well, but nothing special.
Serving type: on-tap

A decent maltiness to it and a little nutty, a good brown ale, better than Newcastle. caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Pours medium brown with a fairly small but lingering off-white head. Nose is mostly a brown sugar malt with a touch of fruitiness. Flavor is similarly simple with brown sugar, light roatiness, caramel, and a touch of apple dominating the malt. Hops are very subdued. The finish brings out the fruit quality more heavily than the initial taste. A little watery and run-of-the-mill but quite drinkable.
