On tap at The Milton upper East Side in Manhattan. I love Brown Ales and this one is right up there. More of a dark amber color with the dryness of a brown. Not too sweet with mild effervescence.

Pours a nice hazel brown with a fizzy head that is an off white. The smell is sweet with bits of honey along with the malt coming through on the nose. The taste is also sweet with hints of toffee and walnuts making for a warming and pleasant beer.

it says here that this beer is retired, but I'm enjoying one that says it was bottled 11/03/2014 - pours a nice caramel brown with a 2 finger head - mildly spiced - easy drinking - a good brew for this rainy November afternoon -

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Picked up as a single.

Pours light brown, very little foam. Nutty and bready nose. Taste is sweet with caramel cherry notations. Toasty. Slight spice at the finish gives a subtle kick. Some fruitiness. Light carbonation buzz. Good beer.
