Decent-looking beer. Off-white head quickly and fully diminishes. Smell is... well, very much as the label implies. Toffee. Also nutty with a little chocolate. Light vanilla. Taste follows suit almost exactly, no surprises from the initial smell. The body is a little thin for the style and the sweetness is a bit too forced, but it's better than I expected. Doubt I'd seek it out again, but not bad.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a medium brownish-amber color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head fades super-fast leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of a toffee smell mixed with some caramel and a somewhat nutty aroma. A little bit of a grainy and bready smell and some almost honey roasted nut smells are there giving the brew a somewhat honey nut Cheerio like smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a lighter level of toffee and caramel sweetness with a decent amount of a lightly toasted bready taste. As the taste advances the sweetness fades up to the middle of the taste as more light roasted flavors and some graininess and nut come to the tongue. More toward the end the sweetness comes back in the form of a toffee and caramel flavor once again. A light earthy hop brings a dimension of slight bitterness to the brew at the end, and with a good increase in the nut, ends up leaving a rather nutty and lightly toasted flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is medium in thickness and carbonation, which overall suit the mix of nut, light roast, and toffee/caramel rather well for this 5 % abv. brew.

Overall – A rather decent and much drier then anticipated nut brown ale. Fairly nice.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

this is grossly underrated, and possibly the best brew ive had from these guys, whos beer i always seem to taste past its prime, and is always seemingly somewhat oxidized or stale, but not this one. extremely english in nature, this is a sweet brown ale, with an impressive toffee aspect that while adding sweetness to an already sweet grainy beer, also adds a detail and a layer not usually seen in the straightforward nut brown, and to me at least, its memorable. hazy pale brown color, not as clean as most in the style, but holding a pretty solid inch of white head, and passing aromas of brown butter caramel, sweet copper malt, and english ale yeast. the flavors all gel real well, with the toffee element playing a prominent role. not sure if there are curious additives in this beer, such as toffee itself, but the grain bill does a nice job of conveying one of my favorite confections in the flavor here, and the english biscuity yeast makes the finish far more palatable and balanced that is appears to be heading for earlier on. just a thin like of sweetness remains at the finish. carbonation could be ramped up a little bit, but i see this one more in a cask setting than anything else, and doesnt really need a huge bubble life. deserves better here on BA in my humble opinion.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Look: Very little head, even poured fairly aggressively. Caramel in color, transparent. Looks like a cream soda.

Smell: A lot of caramel, brown sugary, vanilla

Taste: Again, a lot of caramel, but with a nutty flavor. Brown sugar makes another appearance. The caramel is very dominant and makes it difficult to pick up much else.

Feel: It says Medium bodied right on the label, and I'll agree with that.

Overall: Very drinkable, and pretty good brew. It's nothing amazing, but still something I'd enjoy to drink again. The smell is the best part.
