look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Brown with orange hues, lighter than chestnut, head is bone white, settles to just a thin film around the edges of the glass

S: Nice warm toasted malt, light caramel, and bread

T: Wheat toast, pretty one dimensional, but easy and pleasant, hops are very, very light, floral flavor, gets a little sweet

M: Low attenuation and full body accentuated by low carb, good for the style, but when combined with the one dimensional flavors it feels a little lackluster

O: Ok, nothing wrong but not much flavor there either

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.

Had this one a few times but for this review, the sample came from a pick-yer-6 from Whole Foods in Raleigh. Poured into my standby weizen glass.

A: Nice dark amber. A decent head with reasonable retention.

S: Amber malt.

T: Slightly toasted malt balanced with a light hoppiness.

M: Just shy of heavy carbonation with a medium thickness.

O: Not bad; a good example of the style. A good balance of toasted amber malt and indistinct hops. I have to give this one props for not exhibiting the cloying sweetness that plagued the last few brown ales I've tried.
