A clear reddish brown with a thin tan head. Smells of lightly toasted grain. Taste begins with a hint of tart fruit, then some dark bread, and finishing with a flowery bitter finish. Mouth feel is pretty good. Overall a solid brown ale. A nice balance between bitterness and sweetness.

From a can and poured into a Three Floyds Teku glass

A) Dark brown, leather color, some what clear, two finger head.

S) Nutty, malty, pine, a little resin not too much.

T) Malt, biscut, hoppy finish cascade perhaps. Nutty is the prime taste note.

M) Medium Carbonation, thick and crisp

O) A very good Nut Brown, very English can't wait to have with Fish and Chips.

Appearance: Dark nutty brown with good lacing.

Smell: Excellent mixture of lemon and caramel. Almost like a lemon pie.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Coffee and pine; again, another excellent and unusual combination. Crisp feel, but a tad thin.

Overall: I really like what this beer has going for it in how unusual it is It's definitely an odd mixture of a pilsener and a piney stout in the form of a brown ale. My complaint would be that there is no one thing that really stands out.
