3.68/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear, brownish-amber body with a small, faintly beige-colored head. Lovely!

Smell: Earthy, toasted nut nose mainly, with lesser notes fo roasted malt and brown sugar. Spicy hop scent in back with a faint touch of grassiness to it.

Taste: Nutty dark caramel taste with hints of roast and brown sugar, though it's never overly sweet. Earthy, lightly spicy hop character with a mild bitterness. Finishes a bit dry, and eventually with a bit more lingering bitterness as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: A nice, enjoyable nut brown ale that's good for a pint or two.

Served on-draught in a shaker pint. A slightly-cloudy dark-red with a finger of head and nice lacing. Smells appetizingly of caramel malts and fresh Fuggle hops. Flavor starts with lightly sweet malts, develops moderate woody nuttiness and slight fruitiness, and finishes with plenty of drying hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied in the mouth, but nearly-flat due to disappointingly weak carbonation.

A subtle and tasty English brown ale let down by insufficient carbonation. Easy to drink and remains the best of the Five Season brews I've sampled.

This is an excellent brown. It's got layers of malty complexity. Just a little hint of coffee supports a nice small chocolate nuts. There's just enough hops to keep it from being too sweet. I also got a little bit of prune going on, but not in a bad way. I thought this was an excellent brown ale.
