Draft poured into shaker pint


A: deep caramel color can almost see through it but not quite not much head


S: Sugary, sweet toffee a little nutty a little roast


M:  fairly thin pretty standard for a brown ale but this almost seems watery


O: while a solid beer and one you can sit and session it really isn't mind boggling either, you want something lighter but with a pleasant but forgettable taste grab one.

16 oz glass at Brunzies bar at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Not much lacing. Beer has a distinct sweet taste to it like an English Brown Ale should. Goes down smooth with a neutral aftertaste. Enjoyable beer.

Appearance is a chocolate brown with about a finger of head that dissipated quickly. There is a malty and bready nose – exactly what I might expect in a standard brown ale. The flavor is hearty with a mild and slightly sour bitterness on the finish. The light roasted malt character is pleasant and makes for a solid, but not exceptional brown ale.

Pours a deep amber to brown color with a small tan head. In the aroma, a small roast and somewhat fruity. In the taste, a caramel like roast and notes of fruitiness. A smooth and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small sticky sweet caramel in the aftertaste. A nice brown, nothing to jump over a fence about, but not bad either.
