Color is a clear, dark brownish-red with an off-white head. The 2 fingers of head fades fairly quickly but leaves a nice amount of lace behind.
The aroma is lightly sweet and nutty. Dark malt smells include toffee, caramel and a little chocolate.
Taste is rich and malty. Somewhat sweet, with a touch of bitterness to round it out. Features toasted and caramel malts and a nutty character. Mouthfeel has medium body and moderate carbonation. The finish is malty and lightly sweet.
Overall, a very enjoyable brown - easy to drink and refreshing.

One of the best brown ales I've ever had, and I've had several. I wish I could get it North of the Cumberland Gap! I got this off the tap with a steak and it paired up brilliantly. I had two glasses and the consistency was amazing. This had an infallible taste with the food I ordered. From the perfect quarter inch head of sparkling white foam to the caramel brown color, this is one beer that is best served on tap and taken multiple times. It smells of walnut, understated hops, and caramel. I can't say enough good things about it.

Appearance: The ice tea colored beer arrives with a nice head that leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass
Smell: Brown bread, hazelnut and caramel notes
Taste: Brown bread and caramel, up front, with a developing nut and mocha character in the middle; the finish marks a return of the caramel to bring a bit of nutty sweetness
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: I don't drink a lot of English Browns but I found this one to be flavorful and well-crafted
