Poured a wonderful brown color with amber around the edges when held to light and a two fingers of gorgeous fluffy off-white head that slowly receded leaving abundant lacing. It looks fantastic. Scents of sweet malt, rich, yeasty fresh bread, caramel alongside some hints of toffee and nuttiness. A very appealing, rich, malt-dominated aroma that is still quite light. Very nicely executed and extremely true to style. Flavor begins with toasted malt and slight caramel flavors, alongside a medium-light malt sweetness and light bitterness, moving into a nutty, toasted, biscuity malt flavor with moderate bitterness and hints of toffee. Finish is semi-dry with notes of toasted malt, nutty flavors, toffee and faint hints of caramel. Aftertaste is semi-dry with notes of toasted malt and nutty flavors with a moderate bitterness. A very good flavor profile that is true to style and very pleasant to drink. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with light carbonation and a smooth, slightly chalky feel. Very nice, quite true to style and a good example of an English pub ale. Overall this is an excellent example of a classic Northern English Brown Ale. It is true to style and excels in every regard and is quite the nice treat.
