Tap pour with light tan head and dark brown semi-opaque body. Minimal thin lacing. Sweet bread nose, more caramel in the flavor. Feel is light. Decent.

got in a trade with The-Adjunct-Hippie. 12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 8/12/2017. Pours slightly hazy deep ruby red/brown color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, and dark fruit; with lighter notes of toffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, herbal, grass, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. A bit too fruity/yeasty, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready/light roast malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, and nuttiness; with lighter notes of toffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, dark fruit, herbal, grass, and roast/toasted earthiness. Mild herbal/grassy/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, nuttiness, milk chocolate, cocoa, herbal, grass, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roast malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/roast bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 5.5%. Overall this is a very good English brown ale. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready/light roast malts and light earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Very rich well rounded English malt complexity; mild fruity yeast and earthy hop balance. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.

On draft. Served in a pint glass. Pours a darker brown body, one finger white head with no retention, no lacing. Smell is a bit of nutty brown, slight boozy heat, not much else behind it. Weird. Flavour is fairly bland, slight nuttiness, a bit of caramel sweetness, slight boozy heat. Not much on the backend, though certainly not terrible. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied, watery on the backend, though appropriately carbonated.

I tried this at Cliffhouse in LaQuinta....it poured a deep rich brownish amber with creamy off white head that left a nice ring lace. The scent had hints of malt. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with hints of sweet bread. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a very good beer.

Appearance; dark amber in color with 1 fluffy 2" head that slowly falls. Some lace develops.

Smell: light bread and nutty aroma.

Taste: bread, toasted nuts, some chocolate, and a mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Lightly crisp to start, smoother and a touch dry at the finish.

Overall: an easy to drink brown ale.

Pours a chestnut brown color with hints of red, and a 2 finger head that rapidly diminishes to 1/2 finger.

Aromas of stale milk chocolate, raw nuts, cacao, and earth.

Flavors are of cocoa, pumpernickel, earth, slight metal, woody walnut, and a faint suggestion of malted milk balls.

Feel is carbonated, slightly chalky, light-plus bodied, with a dry finish.

Overall, this beer isn't up to par with the rest of their line, but I still think it's a decent beer. $7.99/6 pack was an insane deal for the islands, I couldn't not get it. Now I just gotta drink the rest before I head back eventually.

12oz can with a smudged date on it

Dark-ass amber, sudsy head that hangs around and laces the glass. Smell is nutty and grainy. Taste is very nutty, with chocolate malt and a hint of medicinal hops.

Very mediocre brown

Rolling Stones Bar and Grill, LAX Airport Terminal 6, not much good beer here.

a) Pours clear dark amber with low visible carbonation. flattish thin head and not much lace.
s) aromas of nutty malt and little else. grain.
t) more of the nutty malts and too sweet, no hop savor.
f) medium-bodied and yet thin with a low amount of carbonation.
O: This is a nice brown ale if you're stranded at LAX.

This brew, from a twelve ounce can, is a maple brown colored liquid with a slim tan head. The aroma is a nice mix of malt and hops...nutty, solid, a bit of fruit, and a little alcohol. The flavor is balanced in sweetness with a peppery bitterness and a little roasted malt underneath. Full in body.

on tap at LAX killing time during a flight delay
looks dark, smells nice, caramel malt. Flavor is sweet with a little nuttiness, but lacking in hops to balance - could use a little more earthiness. Overall, pretty good
