Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/4 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight hop, hint of roasted malt, and dry hops. Fits the style of an English Brown Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, slight dry hop, and hint of hops. Overall, good appearance and feel, simple otherwise, nothing outstanding.

Served From: Bomber
Bottled on Date: 8/14/12

Appearance: Dark brown with two fingers of an off white head with good retention.

Smell: Slightly toasted malt.

Taste: Malty with a hint of bitterness at the finish. Nutty notes throughout. Tastes “brown”.

Mouthfeel: smooth mouthfeel, appropriate amount of carbonation.

Overall: Tastes like I would expect an English style brown ale to taste. Not always my favorite style, but I like this one better than others I've had because it is well balanced. First time trying this brewery, definitely excited to try more of their offerings.
