Poured into a Firestone Walker Nonic Pint Glass

Appearance: This beer pours a brownish red, with a thinness that is initially unappealing. It tends to settle into a more full looking brown. The head is active with a full two fingers of a loose brownish appearance. It tends to dissipate fairly quickly with a lacing on the glass and a persistent small head remaining through half of the glass.

Smell: The only description i can find, because very little jumps out at me is a normal malty brown ale. The smell is very non-descript, little hop nose, and only a slight hint of maltiness.

Taste: The taste is unremarkable, with a limited amount of maltiness and a slight hop bite. The overall taste is good, but nothing that sticks with you. Very limited hint of alcohol, and for a 7%, very drinkable.

Mouthfeel: A slight malty stickiness remains after the moderate carbonation that bites at the tongue.

Overall: There is absolutely nothing wrong with this brown ale, and if it was available, I would drink it, but it is not memorable and does not warrant going out of the way to find. Otter Creek taking over The Shed brewery, may have made this more mainstream, but it is just OK.

12 oz bottle into my authentic UK pint glass.

A- medium brown, clear. Decent yeasty head disappears quickly.
S- faint malty aroma, old milk?
T- malt, cola, sweetness, little bitterness at the end
M - a little thin
O- drinkable, but not my favorite. A little flat, a little watery. Reminds me of a can of cola left open overnight.
