16oz can, freshness date on the bottom.

LOOK: cloudy mahogany, sticky two fingers of tan head, lots of lacing and retention. Great. True to its name.

SMELL: Ample, up front hop resin, followed by milder bread, and spicy, caramel, faint orange peel, herbs, hay, and salty boardwalk.

TASTE: Very hoppy in a dry, resinous way, more than any brown ale, I've yet had, then it's smooth, toasted, chocolate, with wet hop bitter finish... also notes of pepper, orange rind, nuts, alcohol, with a dry, excellent finish.

FEEL: Perfect, dry, appetizing. Try at cellar temp for a real treat!

Feels and tastes like new york waterfront of 1900s. First rate, maybe top US Brown ale!
