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.

3.85/5 rDev +7.5%
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.

Caramel red-brown color with a decent amount of light passing through. Head didn't have much room to form.
Dry toffee, English brown ale malts, red grape skin, and kilned grains. Hints of brown sugar and cheap brandy. Not bad.
Toffee, kilned malt, turbinado, brandy, and tangy dark bitter fruits in the finish. Kind of simple, but good. Dextrinous feel. Could be a tad fuller, but on par for most brown ales. Carbonation is appreciatively mellow.
Serving type: on-tap
