Pours brown and leaves the same colored body that gives a spectacular one finger foamy off white head. Some nice spotty foamy lacing is observed. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising; the aroma has a fair amount of nuts, caramel malts up front, hops slightly in the background; the flavor is exactly the same; its fairly easy on the palate with a good creaminess all around; overall well worthy to come back to.

18 oz bottle in 16 oz glass. Nice creamy 2 finger head that dissipates with nice lacing. Amber red color. Smell is malty and yeasty. Taste is a little on the dry side with nice malty taste, medium carbonation. A little thin in the mouth, no nasty aftertaste. Very drinkable, especially on a hot day.

L: Poured into a pint glass, in the fridge for only a few hours - cool, but not cold. Beautiful ruby brown hue with a sustainable fluffy, white head. Amazing lacing - white fluff clinging to the sides of the glass! Thin head continues remains with every sampling.

S: Sweet, slightly hoppy.

T: Everything a brown ale should be - malty sweet, slight hops. Probably goes perfect with anything a brown should.

F: Smooth with light carbonation.

O: Perfection!
