One of the best brown ales I've ever had. An underappreciated style - I could drink this every day.

On tap at Engine 15.

Near clear; very dark brown; durable ring; ring lacing.
Feel: Medium-light body and carbonation.
Flavor: Mildly nutty, a bit too sweet, Has lots of caramel malts and a touch of herbal hops. Lasting aftertaste turns mildly bitter.

Pours a murky brown color. Not much head and what's there is gone in a hurry.

Almost no smell. A bit of malt, that's it.

Tastes like a Coke, only not as sweet. Not much to it.

Creamy and somewhat thin. Light bodied for the amount of ABV.

Not bad, just not much to it.

Clear ruby red with not much head. Smells very malty. Tastes like sweet roasted malts with a smooth aftertaste. A little on the sweet side. Overall the look and smell is nothing special, but the taste is very comparable to a English style Brown Ale. A well done example of style 4.00

Dark brown - ruby see thru draft with beige head. Roasted malt nose. Toasted nuts with sweet malt finish (too sweet?). Medium lite mouthfeel. Nice nutty ale.
