12oz short, brown bottle. No freshness date.
A dark brown beer, dropped bright ruby hues and a creamy white wisp lace. Aroma holds a touch chocolate and grain.
Smooth, malty, medium-bodied with an underlying chewiness. Immediate flavours of caramel, fruity grape juice and a mild hop spice come to play. Touch of chocolate, hints of coffee and a faint smoke beneath. Esters in the back bring attention to some alcohol lingering about and notes of berries. Crisp, a bit dry with notes of grain in the feel. Mild citrus bitterness with a sharp grass edge balances out, and complements, the malt flavours. Finishes dry.
A decent brown ale; flavourful, drinkable and enjoyable ... not something I'd session with though.
