a. Hazy brown color with 1 finger of cream colored head. The head disappears quickly. Sediment appears to be in the beer.
s. Solid malt and walnut aroma. Inviting.
t. Very watery nutty taste. Malt and nuts.
o. This beer lacks flavor - very watery. The taste is not bad, just lacking power. Good beer.

Squirrel beer! Pours pale, new engine oil caramel color and sits ruby hazelnut in my glass. Sticky lace arrayed in a foamy netting around my glass.
Earthy carob tree bark tea aroma. Tastes about the same: hazelnut smooth brown malt with minimal brownie crust. Not as chocolately as a southern English brown but more than a northern English brown. A mid-England amount of chocolate I guess. Swampy, herbal hop hints balance out the nutty malt. A little more effervescent than I like my brown ales but it's better when warner. Better outta the cellar instead of the fridge.

Bottle poured into a glass
Mahogany brown, clear , scant carbonation leads to an off white thick foamy lid. Settles down to a dense, off white cap with a few lacings.
Aroma of nutty, earthy goodness, biscuity.
Smooth on the start, little carbonation. Gentle roasted malty taste. No bitter aftertaste . Medium to medium light mouthfeel.
Pleasant, very drinkable, smooth. One of those beers that you can drink a few at a time .

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: Orange-brown in color with a very slight haze. Cream colored head retains fairly well, but does settle after a bit. Lacing is delicate, whispy, and scraggly.
S: Nutty with a prominent cocoa aroma. Hints of cola and bread crust. Clean. Touch of earthy yeast.
T: Toasted grain. Bread crust. Bitter floral and citric hop bitterness rudely interrupts the malts. Orange peel. Malts come back with plenty of cocoa and even dry chocolate cake. Finishes with that cake-like chocolatey taste.
M: Medium bodied. Somewhat creamy and round. Semi-aggressive prickling carbonation.
O: The hops really detract from this one. The aggressive citrus blast is a distraction, and clashes hard with what the malts are trying to do. a different hop variety would go a long way. Or at least toning them down.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on April 20, 2013.
It pours brown with an off-white head that lingers and it has pretty good clarity.
Lots of sweet malts and nuts on the nose with virtually no hops. I find it to be inviting.
The body falls into the medium range and vaguely creamy. A slight acidity.
The taste is also very sweet and malty with caramel notes but overly buttery. It smelled a bit better than its tasted but it was still drinkable.
