2.58/5  rDev -27.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Dark amber, virtually brown. Pours a very thin head.

Aroma: Pretty basic brown ale, a little underdeveloped. Malty.

Taste: Somewhat bland, mild. There's a pleasant maltiness and a little bit of sweetness, but frankly this is quite close to some non-alcoholic beers I've had.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, quite smooth.

Overall: Easy to drink and thirst quenching, but lacks character, depth, and flavour.

Poured into a pint glass.

3.5 A: Very dark brown or perhaps a deep purple. Good head retention with lacing here and there. I really like the color, but overall not too impressive.

4.0 S: Really nutty with powerful caramel. Hints of wood. Cool spring water.

2.5 T: After the appearance and smell, the taste was disappointing. There just isn't a whole lot going on. Flavors are mainly nut and nothing too much else.

2.0 M: Empty carbonation (bubbles with no bite or flavor).

2.5 D: You can chug these all night and not miss out on anything (so long as you smell it's wonderful scent first).

Thanks to dogdoc for throwing this one into a recent box. Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a CCB pint glass.

A: Medium brown, clear, with low carbonation and a thin white head.

S: Sweet malt, grainy, toffee. Not much else.

T: Follows the nose. Toffee, heavy grains, a smidge of hop bitterness. The graininess here has reached the point of detracting from the other flavors present.

M: Thin body, low carbonation sensation. Essentially no alcohol presence.

O: This isn't very good. English brown ales are not a favorite style of mine, but this one falls short.

When first opened I took a whiff. Nothing special at all about the scent. I typically enjoy nut brown ales, but this one didn't do it for me. It tasted like a flat New Castle with some chocolate nut flavor added in.

Other than the taste, it's a good beer. A good amount of foam, decent mouthfeel, good enough drinkability.
