Lightly chilled 12 oz bottle into a 33cl snifter. No visible bottling date, but it's been in my fridge for at least six months.

Look- Clear amber-brown with three fingers of off-white head that falls quickly. Bottle declares it's unfiltered, and the sediment in the bottle backs this up. Nice webbed lacing.

Smell- Mild, nutty, dark bread. Nondescript but pleasant.

Taste- Similar to the nose - pretty standard, even plain, but well done. Toasted biscuit and moderate yeasty breadiness, light fruitiness as it warms, subtle spice.

Mouthfeel- Medium body, light carbonation. Light warming on the back, but fairly light feel for 7.5%.

Overall- A pretty nice brown ale, nice flavor. Nothing too flashy but a decent easy-drinking robust brown ale.
