Appears a deep murky cola brown mahogany brown hue with thin cream beige head that forms minimal specks of lacing ast it dwindles. Aromatics provide light caramel biscuit malts with mild chocolate doughy aspects some tame herbal qualities with a roasted nut edge. Flavor wise the soft cocoa chocolate powder tone with roasted malt dryness blended with the herbal hops dance on the taste buds with a bit of that muted nut character joining the party, overall packed with some flavor loving the lower alcohol. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied with even to lighter carbonation finishes really clean and a bit watery in the finish. Drinkability is great a roasty English style nut brown ale that will keep your beer geek senses tingling and your liver at ease.

This one grew on me. At first there is nothing special, but that's really the point. It's not overpowering and is just right. Not too much of anything.

An overall good beer that isn't in the sterotype of small craft brews. Very drinkable and tasty.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very dark brown color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, brown sugar. Taste is bready malts, light sweetness, more flavor than you would expect at this abv., very easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a pretty good beer.

A 6 oz pour shared during a brewery tour with Scott Smith.

A: The nut brown ale is a dark brown color with the appearance of sedimentary haziness. Head is 1 finger in size.

S: The nose is nutty toffee malts with an underlying bitter hop aroma.

T: The mouth is fairly dry, accentuating a nutty malt body without making things get too sweet. The malts are nicely supported by a bittern hop presence that doesn't get in the way, allowing the malt elements to steal the show.

M: The nuttiness is very filling, providing a dry flavor that doesn't want to quit.

D: Another East End beer below 5%, the style is not big on my list but this ale is enjoyable.

This one pours a medium brown with a frothy tan head that sticks around for awhile. Not much smell going on here, but I could pick up some roasted malt and very subtle hops. The taste was nice, consistent, but not very strong. Some roasted malt throughout with some burnt aftertaste. The mouthfeel is light, with good carbonation, and pretty smooth. This is an easy drinking beer, the flavor won't annoy or get old, great session beer, but it is not very complex. Worth checking out, it is an enjoyable beer.
