Pours a very clear cola color with ruby red highlights. The coffee colored head is full and provides great lacing. The scent is mild with some notes of caramel and general sweetness. Slightly fruity. Tastes is more bitter than expected, but nowhere near hoppy. Gives the impression of an American brown ale vs English, but who am I to argue with the historical recipe? Soft and smooth tasting. Bready and caramel. Maybe a hint of roast, but fleeting. The finish is fairly bitter and semi dry. Good brown ale. No faults.
