Pours a dark, muddy copper with a finger of beige head. The head dissipates rather quickly, but sticks around the edge of the glass leaving a healthy dose of lacing behind. The nose is bready for sure. Definite malt forward flavor with a bitter and semi-dry finish. Not fancy, but still one of the best browns around.
