Enjoy by July 27, 2014.

It pours brown with reddish highlights, a good 2 finger head of foam that shrinks slowly, leaving almost a complete layer on top of the beer.

The smell is a mix of roasted malt, a hoppy bitterness that almost borders on being fruity, and some notes of sweet malt.

In the taste, there seems to be a nice balance amongst the smells I noted above. It's very smooth and tasty and very easy to drink. I just reviewed another Brown Ale that was more assertive with the hop bitterness and I liked it a lot, but this is JUST as enjoyable, in different ways.

On the light side of medium bodied, on the lower side of medium carbonation, the mouthfeel is good.

A very nice well made brown Ale. I enjoyed it.
