Dark brown pour leaving an inviting cap of sturdy tan foam.
Aroma-Toasted malt, caramel note
Taste-Toasted malt, caramel, toffee, milk chocolate, and a nice little undercurrent of hops that balance everything out. A very enjoyable, tasty brown ale.

Interesting take on a brown here, more of a caramel toasty base than a nutty chocolate roast one, making it a lighter and more easy drinking, but equally flavorful example of the style. Nice frothing head on it with decent retention, an amber hue, and a nose of sweet medium crystal malt. The yeast is nondescript, unlike other English style browns out there, but u don't miss it as the beer is dry enough for me in the finish and not seemingly missing anything. Medium bodied with average carbonation, this beer isn't going to change the world, but it's a plenty serviceable warm weather brown, and that's all good in my book.

Appearance- –Brown color with a moderate white head.
Taste - Pretty good flavor, malty with a sweet finish.
