Smells malty, some coco and malt. Poured a light oatmeal khaki colored head that left a little lace as it faded to a thick film. The beer is dark hazelnut in color with a bit of an amber hue. Coco malt flavor dominates with a little caramel and maybe a bit of hops in there. The flavor fades fast to a pretty clean aftertaste. The body is on the light side and the mouthfeel is pretty watery. A pretty bland beer, not something I would search out. (447 characters)

Pours a bronze color. A medium size head that produces some light lacing. The aroma is mellow as some floral and sweet tones are detectable. The flavor is simple, sweet malt balanced by some bitterness. Reminds me of Newcastle, but with a little more malt flavor.

The mouthfeel is slightly above average, as this was a very thin bodied beer but quite smooth. No lingering aftertaste. Extremely easy drinking as many of these can be quaffed if you are in the mood for a simple brown ale with decent flavor. (509 characters)

The beer pours a reddish brown color with a thick off-white head. The scent is good. It has a nice balance of malts and hops. There are a few crystal malts in this one along with victory malts too add the nutty aroma and taste. The taste is good. It has a sweet malty taste which gives it the brown feel. It is creamy and smooth. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied ale with a little too much carbonation. This is a decent brown ale; a real good drinker. (463 characters)
