Pours a cloudy chestnut-brown with a tightly packed head that seems unusual for an English brown (and the commercial description gives fair warning of a more “American” degree of carbonation). Aroma is nutty and strangely alcoholic. Flavor is muted but shows some fruity esters, lightly toasted grain, a nice dose of clean malt and a moderate hop bitterness. Medium-bodied and a rather lively palate for the style, again owing to the “American” level of carbonation. A subtle and well-balanced beer, and a pretty good representative of the style. Nice.
Available on draught at the Hayward Eatery brewpub in Hayward, Wisconsin. Pours a clear brown amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a film, white ring and some spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, lightly roasted nuts, a touch of smoke and flowery hops. Taste is lightly carbonated, medium bodied, creamy and smooth with flavors of caramel malt, with a touch of toffee. Finish is slightly sweet, light and then a clean cut aftertaste with no bitterness or hop dry flavors.
