3.45/5 rDev +2.4%
Pours a light caramel to brown (light for the style) with two fingers of butterscotch foam. Aroma is sweet grainy malt, artificial vanilla extract, a faint hint of earthy herbal hops. Palate is smooth, sweet corn syrup, mellow toasty malt, carnival peanuts, some treacle, vanilla toffee notes, faint earthy hops. Mouthful is quite nice actually, silky smooth and decent body, some chewy malts. An underachieving brown ale that is a decent sessional if one is in an old school pub mood. Lacks nutty punch and swings way towards sweet but mellow malt.

3.01/5 rDev -10.7%
Pours a one finger white head that quickly disappears. Body is of dark ruby color. Looks decent, but a bit disappointed that the head disappeared so quickly.
Not much aroma picked up, but from what there was: slight sweet caramel notes and biscuity notes.
Slight grain notes on the taste, backed by some caramel malt. Bit nutty and dry finish.
Nice amount of carbonation, and goes down real fast and smooth. But, it is way too watery. Very little body to it.
Not a remarkable English Brown Ale.
