A - Dark brown, mostly transparent, with a light head of off white. Not much head on pour but with a persistent ring and lacing.

S - Quiet malt, some roast and minerality.

T - Nutty with a subtle toasted bread flavor, closing on a very light bitterness.

M - Crisp and light, without lingering dryness.

O - Solid brown. Not particularly complex, but clean and tasty.

12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.

Deep hazed brown hue, thin yet staying off white lacing. Nutty maltiness, hint of brown sugar, yeast, and dried grass in the nose. Great smoothness meets a semi-chewy body. Love the maltiness in this brew, toasty with grassy highlights. Modest hopping with just enough bitterness to bring things together.

A solid brown ale from start to finish, very drinkable as well.

Clead reddy-brown in color, with some light tan head. Decent lacing. Aroma is of caramel and hazelnut nuttiness. Taste is caramel and the same nuttiness. Extremely high carbonation for a brown. Slightly watery too. I hate this 250 character minimum!!!!
