Pint glass on tap at the Lobster Trap

Look is a dark cola color, clear, with a small cap of mocha head. Smell is light: grain, malt, cocoa. Taste is light roast, chocolate, nutty, and faint earthy hop.

Slightly above-average, enjoyable, been-there-done-that.

Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a somewhat smallish pint glass.

Dark red brown body under a 2-finger head.

Nice fruity scent on the head.

Taste: Good bitterness over the gentler flavours. Dark fruit, some breadiness.

Moderate carbonation.

Overall, pretty good, though I'm not sure I'd order it again if there were other more preferable beers on the menu.

One of my go to brown ales. 7$ for a sixer at Sprouts in Poway, Ca. Cant beat that price and this is a decent brew. MUCH better then the Newcastle that is being sold over here in the states these days, and cheaper too. A medium bodied mouthfeel with biscuty undertones balanced by malts and nutty accents. Basic, but really good and you cant beat the price.
