This ale poured a golden brown. The finely carbonated ale produced a one finger light tan coloured head with incredible retention and full, thick lacings.
Hints of brown sugar, treacle, a creamy nuttiness, and earthy, leafy hops.
A very pleasant traditional brown ale. Nutty malts (hazelnut, walnut) sweetened by slight hints of brown sugar and treacle. A hint of roasted coffee and the earthy hop finish nicely rounds out this ale.
Nice, creamy mouthfeel in this nicely balanced brew. Creamy nuttiness well balanced by slight bitterness from hint of roasted coffee and the earthy hops.
Very drinkable classic styled brown ale. As such also very sessionable. Would also serve as a great introduction to brews made with the darker roasted malts. Glad to have tried this brew, and will likely drink this one again.
