On tap at the Brew House into a tulip

A: dark brown with a thin khaki crown that subsides
S: chocolate, nuts, toasted barley, a little wheat or rye spiciness, faint herbal hops, whisper of citrus
T: follows the nose, a little light and milky sweet at the end.
M: best part of this one: moderate carbonation, creamy, and a little lift from the hops on the back. balance of different flavors is really great. A little thin, maybe, but not too much.

Overall: Considering the abv, this has a lot of flavor and body. It isn't over the top or big and bold, but it is fantastic.

This mild greets you with a deep rich color that lets you know exactly what you are getting in for. Dry flavor with hearty caramel and toffee overtones. The perfect complement to a salty or smoky dish. Great example of a little explored style.

Replicates a true British session ale style. Pure malt based brown/caramel hued ale. Some english toffee notes, with minimally noticed aroma. Medium-light mouthfeel, absolutely a beer to take down midweek.
