A copper amber ale with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, nutty roasted malt with light fruity esters. In mouth, a nice roasted malt with light coffee, nutty herbal hops, not bad. On tap at BIA, July 30, 2012.

MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2008
My Bottom Line:
Nutty caramel sweetness and roastiness seamlessly sift into finishing earthy hop bitterness. This is a balanced and highly drinkable Brown Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-Creamy foam tops the clear auburn brown.
-The overall result is quite clean.
-The hazelnut-like sweetness is straightforward, but quite pleasant.
-The mouthfeel is well rounded for this strength.

On tap at Bray’s Brewpub.
