Tasted from bottle in Brewmaster’s Collection mix-pack into nucleated pint glass. Poured a clear, light-brown color with creamy off-white foam, somewhat lasting, very little lace. Aromas of caramelized brown sugar, nuts, very slight hops and fruity ale yeast esters. Moderately malty-sweet and nutty flavors with some hops bitterness, caramel, toast, some chocolate, even a little roasted grain dryness. Medium body, somewhat thin mouthfeel, nice bittersweet and fruity aftertaste. Extremely drinkable and refreshing. English Brown Ales are one of my favorite styles. This one is 100% true-to-style, therefore delicious, but not really a superior example. dpento1 (236) - Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Pours a medium brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Flavor is rather nutty, with caramel and malts in the background. Finishes slightly hoppy and dr cryptobard (281) - DENMARK - AUG 20, 2011
Malts and nuts hit the nose and tongue. Finishes smooth so you can proceed to drink worthier brews ;) BrianDorry55 (361) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2011
