Had this on tap at the brewery. Had a decent light brown color with a short head. Not too bad for a spring beer. Decent flavor with decent body. Not too much flavor. Goes down easy and was very nice to drink. But nothing too spectacular as I was expecting more.

First off, I have been looking for this brew for a couple of months now. I prefer a more malty ale, with a darker appearance, so I thought this would be just right for me after I fell in love with SA's Oktoberfest but was no longer able to buy it. After reading the description on Saint Arnold's webpage I set out looking and it was definitely worth the wait, and almost reminds me of the oktoberfest brew, considering that SA's oktoberfest is actually an ale.

Poured from a bottle into half-pint glass

A: A deep reddish-copper with good lacing at warmer temps. and a decent head

S: Sweet caramel malt, and slighty fruity, roasted

T: Bready up front, and if warm almost cinnamon, then goes into a caramel malty, then end with a mild hop crispness that doesn't stay on the tongue for long.

M: Medium carbonation, with a creamy head

O: My favorite brew SO FAR from Saint Arnold, and probably my favorite beer to date. It isn't bad chilled, but you get a much more "rounded" experience after it warms slightly.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Reddish brown, with a very thin(almost non) off white head.

Smell: Mild notes of nutty and fruity smell, with mild malts.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste is a mild wood/nutty taste, and some malts.

Overall: I am not really a fan of browns personally, but this one is ok. Not really anything special in my opinion.
