Pours with a thicker, fluffy head with staying power. This is an exceptional nut brown with the perfect balance of sweet scotch caramel and smooth dark malt. Will always come back to this one as a standard. Amazing Nut Brown!

Large 550ml bottle poured in a Samuel Smith pint glass. Exceptionally long lasting head with a lace that grips the glass throughout. Brown colored ale, exactly like the label. The toffee notes are the focal point. A little hint of caramel, perhaps a little hazelnut like Nutella. Very easy to drink, no one flavor overwhelms the palette. Light bodied with a gentle hop kick; not thick at all, which is remarkable. Surprisingly refreshing with a pleasant aftertaste. I'll definitely revisit.
