A: Dark brown body, white thin head.

N: Rich malt with earthy hop contributions.

T: Smooth with rich dark maltiness. Earthy English hops and a slightly astringent finish.

M: Slick, astringent, a little tart.

O: Decent English ale. Dark maltiness was a bit much for me on this one.

$ 5.99/16.9 oz at Oppermann’s cork ‘N’ Ale
Bottle marked L13 21:39 at 50 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma of earth
Head average (4 cm), off white, creamy to fizzy, fairly rapidly diminishing to 2 mm partial layer
Lacing OK, scattered islands and partialring of small bubbles
Body chestnut, clear
Flavor begins with the earthy taste of the Maris Otter malts and the roastyness of burning witches, with a dry finish. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, watery, lively carbonation

An excellent ale, a good place to start if you’re new to Brit ales.
