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.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from the tap a dark clear orange colour. Smells very sweet and malty with a hint of toastiness. Tastes malty and toasty with a hint of burnt and and slight bitter hop finish and aftertaste. Lingering roasted flavour for the finish.

Would I buy this beer again? Maybe.
