Sampling right now on 11/6/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler. Poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a nice dark brown in color with a very tiny head. Perfect carbonation. Very little (if any actually) lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma is of of some dark roasted grains with burnt sugar. The taste is about the same with a touch of caramel. No harsh aftertaste. Overall, a very decent brew .

12 oz. twist-off bottle poured into a Nonic
5% ABV

A - An aggressive pour unleashes a tall light khaki head on this beer which lasts and lasts, covering the pint above the gorgeous clear crimson copper-colored beer with thick lace.

S - Burley Brown combines the dry, mildly astringent aroma of toasted malt and biscuit character with subtle caramel and toffee sweetness for a balanced and inviting smelling brown.

T - Mild earthy hops cut through this brown's malt base of toasted wheat bread crust and suggestions of caramel and toffee for a balanced brown finish.

M - Burley Brown is anything but burley as this light-bodied beer crosses the palate with lasting, faintly metallic dryness and a smooth finish.

O - One of Points more balanced and thorough beers, Burley Brown does a good job of having different malt nuances such as toasted dryness and caramel sweetness play off one another for a very easy drinking brown ale.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured into a perfect pint.

2.75 A: Clear, light amber brown color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is below average and very little lacing is left.

3.0 S: Toasty with nuttiness and caramel. Pretty standard nose for a brown, but this falls squarely at average.

3.0 T: Taste is about in line with the nose. Toasty, nutty, caramel. Neutral malt sweetness to balance. Grainy.

3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy. Good enough here.

3.0 D: Pretty average, run-of-the-mill brown. That isn't to say it isn't good.
