A: Pours a murky brownish amber with a creamy, lingering beige mousse.

S: Aromas of biscuit, minerals, caramel, heavy cream, vanilla bean, and mild, earthy ale hops quickly reveal themselves on the nose.

T: Notes of minerals, lemon, lime, and herbs balance notes of biscuit, toast, caramel, toffee, brown butter, leather, heavy cream, and treacle. The finish is nicely balanced and pleasantly smooth, presenting a respectable integration of caramel, toffee, biscuit, herb, and mild citrus notes.

M: Medium-to-full in body and smooth. Carbonation is crisper than average for the style. Very drinkable.

O: A good brown ale. Really easy drinking and with enough complexity to warrant revisiting.

16 oz can poured into a pint glass.
This beer has a dark brown color body with a thin tan head. The smell has a roasty malt and hop to it smell to it. The taste has a maltness upfront and then a nice hop backbone. The hop very nice for a brown ale. Mouthfeel is smooth and overall very tasty for a brown ale.

What a delicious Brown Ale! I hesitantly cracked open a can a year past the best by date and it still has a wonderful, juicy hop aroma and great carbonation.

A: a maroon-ish brown when held up to the light with a pleasant lively head

S: smells delicious! Biscuity malts mixed with a juicy, citrusy hop aroma that reminds me of spring. I associate Brown ales with Autumn, but the hops in this one are completely warm weather-esque.

T: biscuity malts with some aluminum, likely due to being past the enjoy by date. Light with some citrus, coffee, and clove. Maybe even a hint of rosemary or thyme. This has a well-balanced bitterness

M: perfectly bubbly and biting. Smooth and drinkable.
