A - Pours a fairly clear light brown wit ha touch of red in it and a finger of frothy slightly off-white head. The head fades down to a ring around the glass lacing nicely on the sides.

S - Aroma is a blend of some sweet light roasted caramel malts and some rich nutty smells. Some pine and earthiness also in the aroma.

T - Starts out with some nice roasted sweet caramel flavors and some nutty flavor. Through the middle the nutty flavors get a bit stronger and some more roasty flavors come out. The finish is a blend of sweet caramel and just a touch of earthy flavor that lingers.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very smooth and crisp without being watery. Finish feels fairly clean.

D - Very drinkable. Nice and smooth and crisp. Really nice roasted characteristics and nutty flavors mixed in.

Had on tap at Council Rock.Poured into a nonic a deep chesnut brown with ruby hue,a half finger off white head atop.Aromas were quite sweet with caramel and fruity notes,faint nuttiness was there as well.Caramel and fruit on the palate with brown sugar notes lending more sweetness,a light drying earthy pine note in the finish.On the sweeter side for my liking but not to bad.

A-Cloudy hazel, three finger light tan head that leaves behind a good deal of lacing.

S-Nuts, some roasted malt, caramel and toffee.

T-Blend of nuts, roasted malt and caramel with some bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, however it doesn't have much carbonation and it is on the watery side.

O-A decent brown ale, however the body could have been much fuller.

A: Hazy cherry brown with a nice white head and some great lacing.

S: Nutty and fruity on the front of the nose with a toasted caramel malt back-end.

T: Malty up-front with a nice toasted nut bread middle and a crisp, dry finish. The range of flavors is balanced and includes notes of tree nuts, bread crust, caramel malts, raisins, some grassy hop notes, and earth.

M: Easy feeling brew with a nice clean finish. A touch watery in the mouth with a tinny feel, but not overwhelmingly so.

O: This is a great, well-balanced brown ale that doesnt kill it with the maltiness like some others. Tasty, refreshing, and light enough for a good session.
