Oftentimes the expectation for American Microbrew of traditional styles with a sweet or flavorful reputation is to turn everything to 11. While the english brown is typically both sweet and flavorful, it's nice to see restraint in this brew. It's has a sugary malty nose and a strong malt finish, with the notes of grass, cream and (obviously) nuts that you'd expect in a nice balance. All that with a relatively light body and a quickly vanishing aftertaste.

While it's a nice light brew to accompany a reasonable savory meal, it would be overpowered by rich entrees. With it's light body someone might try to adopt it as a craft beer drinker's session ale.
