Comes in brown and with heft, moreso than a lot of its usual English counterparts. Lighter off white head, 3/5". Aroma gave some brown malt, thats about it.

Taste, still hits those heavier than average malt and thickness notes, nutty, mild chocolate malt feels. A little bit of Cascade hopping is evident.

One of the better brown ale choices out there, convenient format, good distribution, usually reliable and doesn't need to be uber fresh.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance was a very dark brown color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was malt, nut and smoke. The taste was nutty with some hops thrown in. A really good brown ale.

Poured from 22 oz bottle into glass mug. Colour is very dark brown, almost black with a very thin beige head and no lacing. Smell is very malty. Taste is similar to the aroma but with a definite nut undercurrent, maybe a little toffee. Overall an above average brown ale.
