4.58/5  rDev +11.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: very light brown. Not as heavy looking as the brown ale I prefer, but very inviting. 4.5/5

Smell: Overwhelming caramel malt. It completely dominates the smell, but does not become too sickeningly sweet to take away from it.
I give it a 4/5

taste: Lovely. Light hops and heavy on the malt. the Mariss otter malt really blends out a good amount of nuttiness for such a light looking brown ale.
Its a taste I try to emulate with my own brown ale, so it obvious that I love it, but if your a hop-hunter, I feel like you will be let down by this one
5/5

mouthfeel: quite nice. very drinkable
4/5

overall: 4.5/5

a very, very nice brown ale. This is what I strive to make when I brew my own brown ale at home, and its what I expect from a brown ale when I order something.
If you want a lot of hops in you beer, I should say to avoid this one and try something else

but if your a malthead, order a pint or two of this one with your meal and you will not be disappointed

The first thing I noticed and appreciated about this beer is it was not served ice-cold. It really helps bring out more flavors when it is a bit warmer.

Pours an amber-brown color without much head to speak of. There is some salt-water aspect in the scent but nothing that would detract from the review of this beer. Taste-wise, this is a well-balanced brew with a good amount of maltiness and just enough hops to not be too sweet. There is definitely a nice nuttiness that is noticed on the finish. Mouthfeel is very smooth and pleasant. Clearly, one of the better nut brown ales I have tried.

Had this while in town visiting. Server described it as similar to Newcastle, but I'd disagree.

Color was a deep chocolate, good roasted malts on both the nose and palate. Like some other reviews, this had more depth and bite (from roasting) than other brown ales. And to me, it's what made it so delicious.

Finally, this was even more exceptional paired with their shrimp po'boy. Really brought out the flavor of the beer!

Arrives a clear, rich brown with red throughout. Smallish light tan head. Retention is minimal with a hint of a film after a moment.
Smell is toast, malt, nut/cardboard and a hint of hops.
Taste is roasted malt, nuts, vanilla and light hops. Balance good throughout.
Medium plus body, light effervescence, reasonably smooth with a mildly drying finish. Toasty note hangs on in the aftertaste and a decent coating develops as well. A nice example of the style.

A traditiona British Style Brown Ale. Roasted Malt and English Toffee flavors dominate, fruity malty aroma and a smooth sweet caramel finish. Served unfiltered with 5% alcohol content. Cask condition beer engine draught served chilled.

golden hue, dark brown color, long lasting head retention. Toffee moderately pronounced in aroma, with some caramel, and malt accenting. Taste is prodominatly roasted malt flavor with caramel and toffee becoming apparent as it warmed up.Some fruity is apparent through out. Mouth feel is pleasantly smooth, with a touch of dryness in the finish. Alot of the aroma and flavors enhanced with warming. Yet it also added a some what rough finish also. Overall it was a very drinkable beer, especially when listening to live music. Highly recommend if in Coral Gables or Miami area to stop in and have a pint.

The first part is what was on the menu. My understanding of cask condition beers to be served from beer engine are to be at room temperature but being some what above avergae room temperature in the Miami, Coral Gables area understandably it was chilled.

Cheers!!!

On-tap at the brewpub. Appears a clear brown with a light tan head. This beer is a little more roasty than most browns, making it closer to a brown porter. Otherwise it has the usual light toffee and caramel flavors with enough hop bitterness to keep it balanced. Pretty good, but not great brown.

Dark brown colour body,some white head. significantly malted, with chocolate malt, licorice and root beer and nutty like. Bold, almost infused extract flavours. A bit of roast, and of hop. Average mouthfeel. Not a bad brown.Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub.
