When I first got into "real beer" about a year ago this was my absolute favorite beer and I remember bringing it to some of my buddies who complained that it was much too thick for their tastes (the quickly returned to their Rolling Rocks, and declined my offer for another beer. Now, of course, my main problem with this brew is its lack of complexity and overall lack of flavor.
Pours with little to no head. Zero head retention. Apperance is pretty nice, typical brown ale, nice rich amber color. Not much on the nose, a little malted roastiness, but nothing to write home about. Taste was sweeter than I had remembered. I have had this brew in England and wonder how different it is over there, or if it was about the same. Roasted malts with slight nutty finish, though it could use more nut flavor. Overall a very smooth beer, but one thats just a bit short in all catagories.
Serving type: on-tap

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.
A - Poured a very clear reddish copper color. Decent enough head that retreats to lacing.
S - Very pronounced European hop note with little malt aroma.
T - Bitter hops with some hint of malt.
M - Medium body with a dry finish.
O - I honestly thought I was drinking a Heineken that someone had colored brown. This really isn't what I expect from a Brown Ale - not say it was bad - just not what I expected.
