Pour brown but on the lighter side with a 1 finger light tan head

Huge Carmel malt in the nose with a slight. creamy sweetness to it and a hint of nuttiness near the end. Slight spicy hops.

Sweetness is much more subtle in the taste. Nuttiness is more prevelent in the taste

Mouthfeel is on the lighter side for a brown but still has a nice body to it

A brown ale. Nice. This is definitely a style that could use more attention. It seems when most breweries do afford it some it's half-assed. Anyways.

Pours nice. Good nose. Nice flavor profile on this one. Consistent and thorough. I like it. Always refreshing to come across a brown ale that's done right. Suggested.
