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..
