3.56/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. brown bottle poured with a small but renewing head, producing good retention; crystal clear, deep amber color.

S: Subtle and simple but pleasant malt aromas suggesting baked bread

T: also simple but nice, featuring bready malts with hints of caramel and nuts.

M: Medium carbonation. Too harsh and aggressive for style.

O: Tasty and not overly sweet, but marred but an inexplicably harsh feel.

Serving type: bottle

Overall, a very nice Brown Ale. The honey taste is very slight, which I think is actually a good thing, or else the beer would probably be just too sweet. There's also a nice nuttiness, which I would expect for a Brown Ale. The mouth feel is a bit lighter than I expected and there's a slight bit of pleasant carbonation.
