look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a medium but murky brown producing slightly more than a single finger of tan, frothy, shortlived head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is rich roasted malt, buttery biscuit, thin coffee, a little toffee & caramel. Taste is a little disappointing & thin: dark toasty malt, caramel & watery cola like notes with faint hints of cream & molasses/brown sugar. Lively with pepper from just before mid-sip into the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation, a little oily but lively on the tongue with a graininess in the aftertaste. For me this offering is a little disappointing from a brewery that I have come to expect better things of.

Mild brown pour, tan head, 1/3". Didn't create lace, head didn't last. Aroma was nuts, brown malt.

Taste, very smooth, light, but not insubstantial. Smooth. Not bitter. Well carbonated. Decent stuff to order at the bar when you are just drinking, not tasting. Does nothing wrong.

This is a good beer. A little lighter for my taste, I've had English style ales before that have knocked this one out of the water. It has a good feeling when you take a big sip. A great after work beer. Splendid. 3.8/5

How many?: You'll be a happy camper after 4 of these.

Small head that settles to no bubbles. The liquid is light brown/dark amber and reasonably clear.

Notes of molasses. There's some iron to the nose as well.

Thin bodied with a heightened level of bubbles. Some biscuit and toast to the tongue. The swallow and aftertaste brings out a touch of bittering hop, leaving a moderately lingering blend with the toasty malt.

Pours a clear reddish-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, roasted nut, and slight caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with toast and nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is fairly mild but tasty.

Serving type: bottle.
