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.

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.
