A - amber-colored, very small head which dissipates quickly
S - bread, fruity
T - malty sweetness with a hint of apple, non-distinct hops that do offer some balance; finish is a fairly pleasant sweetness
M - medium body with a little more carbonation than expected; mouth coated by the malts/sweetness
D - a decent malty English ale with a slight hop background. served a bit too cold for the style.

The beer poured old gold with an off white head. The aroma was of mild hops. The taste was muted but was of malt with a light hop finish. The feel was light and dry. This one was a bit weak for the style, neither the malt or hops stood out, it was drinkable, but did nothing to make me want more.

I cannot find this beer listed on their website, but at the pub the menu listed it as a year-round offering.

It said it was an American Brown ale, but it poured like a nice Vienna or California steam, bright copper, almost orange, with a very nice, retentive head.

Smelt of surprisingly strong hops with some pleasant butteryness thrown in. Perfect strength.

The drop off between odor and taste was amazing. All the hops present in the nose seemed to vanish in the midst of a chemical start and a diactyl finish.

What a letdown! Good thing I ordered this first, if I had drank it after the pale ale it would have tasted like water.
