Another BBC style, and a current member of the 6-pack Brewmasters Collection, on to the beer:

Poured into a pint glass, a solid head foams from the dark reddish-brown body. The smell is pleasing, reminding me of walking into a See's Candies store. I wish the flavor were just as good as the smell, but the taste still satisfies; sweet malts, maple, and nutty flavors pop out. Although there's a pronounced hop aroma and flavor, I think the beer might have been a little too sweet. It's still worth a try if you're looking for a Brown Ale to drink.
