Poured from a bomber into my trusty kitchen glass, bought from Trader Joe's in Nashua, NH.
A- Deep caramel brown, nice off-brown head.
S- I get some toasted hazelnut, walnut, caramel, and earthy hops. The malts definitely come through and are on the toasty side. Smells very crisp and inviting.
T- Nice and rich caramel with hazelnut, toasted malts, and a slight hop flavor at the end to balance it out. Very good aftertaste of toast, light coffee, and earthy notes mingled with caramel. Very satisfying.
M- I was expecting something a little thicker, it's a little watery for my liking, but then again, this is my first time trying a Northern English brown.
O- I went in with a completely open mind on this one and am glad I did. This brew is more for research purposes anyways as I am planning on brewing a similar style of brown ale but with a hint of peat-smoked malt thrown in. I think the peat would go well with this one though! Very good brew!
