look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Dark ruby in appearance with an average sized bubbly white head & almost no carbonation visible.

Dark fruits is the main smell along with hints of caramel & chocolate. Quite pleasant really.

A malty/fruity tasting beer & hints of caramel, similar to the smell. A chocolate bitterness to finish with.

A full bodied ale with slight carbonation.

Overall an enjoyable beer that i would recommend.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

A - Clear dark brown with red highlights. A short, tan/light brown head that leaves a continuous lace.

S - Lot's of roasty malt and neutral hops.

T - Taste follows the nose plus a bit of chocolate toward the back.

M - Thin and finishes a bit dry. Carbonation is just right for the style.

O - Very good. This is definitely a brown and certainly not an ESB of any sort, by the way. Not a Sam Smith Nut Brown or Fuller's 1845, but darned good. It really lacks the body that I expect from a well-made northern brown. And, as reviewed, it's a bit too dry- which may be due to the lack of body..
