It looks absolutely darling, with a nice dark-brown body, and a slightly caramel-colored head with a little bit of lacing.

The smell consists of a dark, roasted, burnt grain presence, with some malt and sweetness. A splendid aroma- indeed.

The taste is absolutely darling. Easily described, it tastes of what the aroma contains. And like an English Brown Ale should, there is very little hop presence.

The mouthfeel is medium; not too thick, not too thin.

Overall, this beer is of the upmost drinkability and quality taste, especially being a macro beer. But like all other imported beers, this is just another wonderful beverage to have. It's well worth the price. This is a beer to always keep in the fridge.
