Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of yeast, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of yeast, and hops. Fits the style of an English Brown Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of yeast, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, hint of caramel malt, hops, biscuit, and a hint of pine. Overall, good appearance, blend, and body, but aroma is very muted and feel is only average.

It was fairly sweet brown ale – slightly yeasty smell upon opening. Definitely tasted better than the smell would lead you to believe. Clean finish with no lingering bitterness. Easy drinking – a sit around the pub and share one kind of beer. It’s named after the Vanderbilt’s beloved dog—and it is sort of like that -- friendly and comfortable.

Cedric’s Tavern at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina

Enjoyed touring the grounds and grabbed a beer at the Tavern before leaving.

A: Light Brown in color with a white head
S: Roasty caramel smell
T: Different flavors throughout but the strongest would be caramel. Nutty flavoring in the beginning.
M: Pretty smooth

Poured from bottle into pint glass at private event at Cedric's Tavern.

Expected much more from this beer. Would have liked a bit more malt and body to it.

Ok if you have been out walking the grounds in hot weather, but nothing distinguishes this beer or makes it memorable.

16 ounce pint - $5.00 at Cedric’s Tavern at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina.

Appearance: Clear, brown body with a 1/3-inch head comprised of off-white foam. Thin lace sheets on the drop. Just a good, humble appearance.

Smell: Well, it certainly smells as one would expect a thoughtfully constructed brown ale to, with notes of slightly over-toasted bread, cocoa, dark caramel, and a hint of roast.

Taste: Brown maltiness of crushed toasted bread crusts, chocolate powder, maybe a bit of instant coffee. Lightly sweet. Small hint of fruitiness. Lightly earthy hops with enough bitterness to balance things out. More caramel developing late and upon warming. Dry, malty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A pleasant-tasting, easy-drinking brown ale.
