3.5/5 rDev -8.4%
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
A- a clear brown/red with a half finger of light tan head that doesn't stick around very long. Lacing is much better than I thought it would be.
S- Typical brown ale aromas. Bready, a bit of caramel and biscuits. English yeast. Hint of brown sugar.
T- A drier take on the style. A balance of dry bitterness, cocoa and a bit of brown sugar/caramel sweetness. Certainly english in it's roots, has a lot in common with an English Bitter, but is noticeably heavier.
M- Medium bodied, not hoppy dry, but a more malt based dryness. Carbonation is medium.
O- A serviceable brown ale. Nothing more, nothing less.

3.61/5 rDev -5.5%
A - Amber and translucent with a bit of lacing.
S - Caramel, sweet malts, brown sugar. Very nice.
T - Malty, sweet, and a bit nutty. Hints of caramel and brown sugar. A bit of a bitter edge, especially in the aftertaste.
M - Medium bodied and very smooth. A bit of a creamy feel.
Brown ales tend to be low on my list, but rating this among other beers in its style I found it to be quite enjoyable. Not something I'd get again, but this is a very good brown ale.
