(T)- A bit of a honey and nutty sweetness to it overall.

(M)- A mellow carbonation level. Quite sweet overall with a mellow nuttiness.

(O)- A bit sweet, particularly for the english variety

This is a brown that has been very well done. Living in Wisconsin makes it hard to find, thankfully Minnesota is just an hour away. Worth the drive to pick up a few cases of this beer. Caramel and chocolate with a nice malt flavor that has me wanting more and more. It feels a little grainy in the mouth, but has a great finish, not to bitter.

Thanks to Tom for sending me this one.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Founders snifter.

A - pours a clean, clear medium brown with a finger and a half of creamy light khaki head.

S - malty, nutty, slight sweet, slightly caramel.

T - toasty with a slightly nutty sweet combintion. Very tasty for a brown ale. Fairly malty but not overly sweet. Sweet bread. A slight drying affect on the palate, most likely from some biscuit malts.

M - medium to medium light bodied. Slightly creamy and dry at the same time.

D - easy drinking for me. Modest ABV and a great taste makes this a fntastic drink on a cool Ohio evening.

Overall, a beer I am surprisingly digging. Brown Ales aren't the most sexy beer of all times, but this one comes across with a fantastic mix of sweet, malt, bread and grain to make an exceptional beer.
