An as-advertised mahogany brown in color, it sits in pretty much the exact median between light and dark on the scale. On top grows a decently sized light head that stops t almost precisely one finger. The head is retained well, some semblance lasting all the way, and lacing is left in patches with some legging, and in good quantity.
A nutty aspect doesn't seem the focus in the nose, though the malts are strong enough to set a foundation on. Mostly perceivable is toast. Generally, it's a bit too light to get a whole lot out of.
Nut comes out strongly in the flavor, coming alongside the toastiness rather than being overcome. Into the middle, a note of smoke comes through, even adding a hint of something just a bit meaty on the end. It's kept in check, allowing the toast and nut to command, and it works in this beer.
A brown ale needs to not be too light or crisp, but to avoid being heavy either. As a style, it needs to meet in the middle, and this beer does. Not too crisp but enough to keep it from being flat, not too smooth but enough to keep it moving, this beer's easy to drink.
