I am a firm lover of brown ales and this one I felt was good in flavor but lacked in other areas. When first pouring this beer the head (at least with this particular bottle) was none existent. It was very small too not really there at all and was fully diminishing. It has a very bold brown color to the beer and tiny but not as lively as I would like to see with its bubbles and fizz. The bubbles just stayed more at the bottom of the glass. The aroma was nice but not long lasting. It had a heavy malt aroma with that grainy sense to it. It in a way almost smelled a bit like wine in a way. When tasting it that malty aroma delivers with a heavy malt flavor with a light bitterness. That bitterness lasts and is present at the end the drink. A hint of smokiness was also detected in the beer. The beer on the palate had a light body and a dry texture. The carbonation was light and with a surprisingly chalky finish. I did like the flavor of this beer, but the aroma, appearance, and palate was sacrificed for it.

At Red Lion. Yay! A non-skunked one. Such a cool bottle, but unfortunately green. Anyway, nice stuff, full body and flavor for a golden ale. Malty with fruity yeast. Serving: Bottle
