A: Deep, earthy brown with a copper tone, highly carbonated and 2 fingers of tan head.

S: Malts, light malts compared to the colour, slight lemon.

T: Follows the nose of light malts, slight lemon, then a darker burt taste comes in, followed by a nice yeastiness which is very pleasant.

M: Medium, bready body, highly carbonated.

O: 8 out of 10. Good beer, would go well with lots of things especially pizza. Middle of the road and flexible as far as flavours.

Pours a rich black-sable with a thick and rather persistent tan head. Aroma has a core of roast malt with hints of cloves and caramel. Mainly malty flavor has smoky and woody hoppy notes plus a hint of cloves, none too strong. Texture is the weak point, being a bit watery and not too fizzy. Still, a decent winter ale, worthy of at least a try.

A: Brilliant chestnut under a 1” quickly dissipating off-white foam collar.
S: Faint hint of chocolate, light malts.
T: Rich malts provide caramel and some rye spice
F: medium body and carbonation.
O: A pretty traditional English style brown ale.

12/05/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Lacks body & depth of flavor. Not bad, but not good either.
