Poured into a pint glass, and it boasts a dark brown color with some deep ruby tinting. The head forms at a finger and a half in a nice light tan. Retention was weak, and not much lacing remained.

The nose was primarily malty with nutty overtones, brown sugar, and dates. There was virtually no hop presence.

This tasted really nice. It's malty sweetness isn't too syrupy or cloying, nor does it require the all-but-absent hop bitterness to round it out. There was obvious caramel, dates, molasses, and a soft nuttiness. And then it finishes clean and crisp.

The mouthfeel was pleasant., a medium to light body with mild carbonation. Quite quaffable.

Overall, I'm not a huge fan of brown ales, but this was one of the best I've had. It paired really well with my teriyaki pork tenderloin and sauteed greens-stuffed mochi.

Copper brown with a one finger tan head, with nice retention and lacing. the aroma is somewhat nutty with toasted malt, caramel, and citrus hops.

Has a lightly sweet nutty flavor with caramel, toasted malt, citrus hops, and brown sugar. Nicely balanced.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very easy to drink. Has a bit of a nutty caramel and toasted malt aftertaste. Well worth trying.
