A - Produces a small light tan head when poured into a pint glass. The head recedes fairly quickly leaving little lace. The beer is clear and brown with reddish hues.
S - A mixture of crystal malt and light chocolate paired with some subtle spices create the aroma.
M - The mouth feel is too watery for the style in my opinion. It's light-medium in body with moderate carbonation.
T - Light caramel and some nutty flavors followed by some herbal hops in the finish. It's pretty bland, don't get many flavors.
It leaves a lot to be desired in the taste department. It's too thin and has a watery feel. Not a fan of this one, although Weyerbacher makes many amazing beers, this isn't one of them.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, 2013 bottling. Pours lightly hazy deep ruby brown color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of raisin, plum, prune, fig, caramel, toast, molasses, biscuit, brown bread, herbal, light chocolate, and toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of raisin, plum, prune, apple, caramel, toast, biscuit, brown bread, molasses, light nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, prune, apple, caramel, molasses, toast, biscuit, brown bread, herbal, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; with great robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice english brown ale. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
