On tap at Busy Bee

A - ruby amber with a thick, off white head that has great retention

S - caramel, nutty, bready

T - big citrusy notes, caramel, faint nuttiness

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This is a decent brown ale though it is far more citrusy than it is malty. This is clearly a more Americanized version of an English classic. Nonetheless, this is a really nice offering that is both enjoyable and sessionable. It's definitely worth a try.
