A: Pours a deep rich brown color with a good head that fades slowly to nice lacing.

S: Aroma of nuts and roasted malt with a hint of caramel sweetness.

T: Taste is a blend of roasted nuts and the roasted malt. Nice touch of the caramel sweetness. There is a subtle bitterness and a clean dry finish.

F: Medium body, smooth with a rich creamy texture. Excellent balance.

O: Very drinkable. Good example of the style. A classic that is a benchmark compare others to.

A: This poured a clear dark copper with moderate tan head.
S: It smelled like nutty bready malt, with some overripe banana and subtle copper hops.
T: It tasted like copper and nutty bread, with a little earthy barley and banana. It had a bittersweet and mostly clean aftertaste.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Decent body.
D: This had a very nice smell with good taste and ok body. It had a smooth finish, so it was very easy to drink. Solid classic brew, but not super delicious.

A- 12 oz bottle into a pint glass yielded a one inch creamy looking head that faded to a thin cap with decent lacing on the glass. Color is crystal clear dark copper.

S- clean malty aroma, crystal and roasted predominate. Not much hop scent here.

T- The description on the bottle calls it dry and that part comes later. It starts with mild malty sweetness quickly counter balanced by the slightly bitter hops.

M- light and smooth.

O- This goes down easy and tastes great. I have been enjoying English brown ales lately as a nice counterpoint to the excellent hop bombs produced here in N. Cal. So many brews, so little time...
