Poured this fine beer into my Hofbrau Mug.

Pours into a nice dark brown color with a finger and a half head that laces down the glass as you drink it.

Smells of oats, nuts with hints of caramel and vanilla.

Has a nice smooth taste. Goes down easily and is refreshingly light.

Has a med. light mouthfeel

Has a nice drinkibility.

I would recomend this to anyone who likes brown ales.

Poured from a 550 ml bottle into a nonic.

Appearance: Pours a ruddy reddish-brown with a foamy two-finger head that recedes quickly, leaving minimal lacing on the glass.

Smell: Smells of sweet, nutty malts, biscuit, brown sugar and maybe even dark fruit.

Taste: Smooth sweet malt taste that finishes with a pleasant hop bittereness. Not a lot going on here, in my estimation, but not bad.

Mouthfeel: Decidedly medium-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation.

Drinkabillity: Only a 5% ABV makes this 550 ml bottle go down pretty easily.

Overall, this is a decent brew but I'm not picking up a whole lot of the complexity that I think other reviewers have. Still, a good, enjoayable beer.
