Poured from a bomber. Reviewed live.

A- Poured a small half-finger head, tan colored with low retention. Small bubbles, deep brown color with low clarity.

S- Chocolaty malts, toffee, some mocha, hazelnut. No real hop presence. Malts are warm and candied.

T- Roast malts play with hazelnut and chocolate on the palate. The flavors mix well, and do not underwhelm. I enjoy this warm and rich flavor.

M- Medium-to-light bodied. Thicker farther back on the tongue.

O- Well above average. Very tasty, nice feel and smell.

Quite lovely shade of brown, kind of a sepia with cinnamon highlights. Moderately foamy with lots of lacing. Tangy and spritzy in the mouth. Dark roasted malt takes the forefront, with a slight resiny, gummy flavor that is actually quite nice.

Starts out with just a wee sweet touch, though it has plenty of malt. This does have a dry finish. The hops are not so bitter, but add a slight fruity taste with some flowery notes. It's stronger than an English version but whatever it is, the stuff is super drinkable and pleasantly sudsy on the tongue. A little barky and woodsy at the finish.

A great quaff and an inviting change from a whole lot of flabby Brown Ales, whatever their nationality. From the 22 oz bottle bought at the Schooner Exact brewery restaurant out of their cooler.

Had this beer on tap last night at the Hooverville in Seattle.

Appearance: deep brown-amber hue with a bit of haze to the body. Head is a thin film of tan foam; can't expect much more from a tap pour.

Smell: lightly bready aroma. Not bad, but quite mild.

Taste: sweet malt flavor with a fair bit of caramel character. Smooth earthy bitterness. A little fruit on the aftertaste; interesting but good. I like it quite a bit, actually.

Mouthfeel: rich medium body with good viscosity and a well-integrated carbonation. Creamy and silky. Quite good.

Drinkability: a tasty, solid brown ale. Think I'll have another.

Beer is a nice light brown with a small head. Aroma is a bit malty and hints of coffee. Flavor is smooth, with notes of oatmeal, cocoa, and sweet malts. Its a nice balanced brown. Not too sweet, very low carbonation. This makes this one a brown you can actually have several of. Its light enough that it doesn't weigh you down. The flavor however is average, yet still a nice enough session Brown.

On-tap at Henry's Tavern, on to the beer:

This brown ale is a joy. Its dark brown color and slightly creamy lace acts as foreplay to the fudge-like, slight roast, rich, sweet, and easy drinking character of this brown ale. Flavorful and easy drinking, a combination I will take in any beer.
