The body appears tobacco juice brown and features a thin yet sticky light tan head. Nuts and roasted malt grain aroma. The taste sports a malty sweetness offset with a somewhat bitter and slightly acrid flavor at the finish. Medium bodied; smooth and semi-dry finish.

This brown ale appears to have roots in within a traditional, malt-forward type of ale. The malt sugars are the key: rich, slightly charred in flavor and aftertaste, and with the hops providing a low-key bitterness to nicely complement the sugary sweetness. Robust and delicious.

Serving type: can
