12 oz. bottle. Nose of caramel and yeast. Taste of mild chocolate, caramel and brown sugar with a little nutty finish. The hops provide a low-key bitterness to nicely offset the sugary sweetness. Smooth with good carbonation and balance. Not earth shattering but tasty and drinkable. An exemplary brown ale.

Pours clear brown. Coffee and something bright, maybe lemon, on the nose. Chicory, nutty malts, and an earthy finIsh.
