Very good balanced beer, one downside is the head retention, the tan head disappears quickly. The ale makes up for it with a taste that lingers long after the mouth feel disappears, bringing once forward nut flavors to the back of the tongue. Semi spicy hops with nice dark floral tones that really compliment the medium malt tastes. Could have a fuller body for a brown ale, but seems like the mouth feel of many american brown ales. Traditional english browns are deeper on the malt but this one still carries through a lot of the flavors you come to expect from an old school brown but with stronger emphasis on the raisen tones throughout, both in the aroma and taste.

Avery has generally been a disappointment for me so this was nice surprise. Nice malty flavor that had me licking my lips between drinks, this is a good thing for me. Sweet on the finish that almost seemed like candy. Low on the bitter which is also good for me. Lacks a lot of complexity or character. Overall I felt is was outstanding beer that was smooth, easy to drink, and hopefully one I will have again. Not the best brown but very nice.
