Aroma: medium sweet toffee malt aroma. Hint of spicy malt aroma not much. No DMS. Low diacetyl.

Appearance: mahogany with brown highlights. Thin soapy head that lingers.

Flavor: light caramel malt flavor. Hints of coffee and burnt malt. Finish is quite drying and bitter. No characterizable hop flavor just bitterness. No DMS, no diacetyl.

Mouthfeel: medium light body with medium low carbonation. Medium creaminess.

Overall: decent brown ale, nothing shines here though I wish there was more hop flavor and aroma. But even the malt flavor was a bit one note.
