Presentation: 12 oz brown bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Slightly hazed medium amber with a thin off-white ring lace. Fine carbonation, slightly sticky on the glass.

Smell: Fruity nose with raw and toasted grain aromas.

Taste: Medium to light bodied with an upfront dry graininess. Thin malt profile with a minimal malt sweetness and a pronounced roasted grain flavours, semi-astringent when mixed with a light citrus hop character. Earthy and leafy notes. Gets a bit toasty, very yeasty/bready, with background coffee-like flavours as the brew warms. Finishes a tad dry and very clean.

Notes: A pretty decent Nut Brown Ale, very drinkable, fresh and clean. Nice representation of the style.
