I'm not a big English Brown Ale fan to begin with but the price was right at $3.99 a 4 pack.

I can't really rate this against other Brown Ales as I'm not fully experienced with them yet. Overall I'm getting some of the general brown ale flavors; coffee, biscuit, bread, sourdough.

The head was nonexistent and dissipated quickly. The smell was almost not there as well.

Overall I would say this is a positive experience, I would probably get this again because I'm finding it very sessionable, and I'm actually enjoying the coffee/biscuit taste (which is something I usually try to avoid).

Reviewed from notes.

Clear garnet color with a short-lasting head and no lacing. Medium body and carbonation levels. The nose is sweet like a praline-studded breakfast pastry on this one, but thankfully the flavor isn't quite as cloying as that would have you expect. Instead, it tastes like more like a standard earthy-nutty brown malt combo with just an edge of tart fruitiness used as a framing device for the malty goodness. Now if only the nose was up to the standard of the flavor...
