Pours a tea colored brown with virtually no head. Very, very subtle aroma of bread. Taste is equally as weak as the smell with slight hints of caramel and sweet bread. Mouth feel was as weak and boring as a glass of water. Overall not bad but not good either. I wouldn't try it again.

Appearance - Pours a honey brown with a finger of foamy and bubbly white head.

Smell - mild aromas of caramel malts, hint of honey, hint of nuttiness, and the slightest hint of earthy hops. Very mild aromas overall.

Taste - honey, sweet bready caramel malts, grains, mild earthy hops.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a lingering sweetness.

Overall - An "ok" English brown. The flavours could use some more "oomph" to make it a stand out. The honey was an interesting concept but it wasn't executed to the degree that I was hoping.

Poured from the tap into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma is of malt and caramel. The taste is toasted malt with a sweet accent.
