The head is is extremely foamy but doens't last and the beer is brown with a reddish tint. The beer has your typical brown ale smells of sweet breads and caramel but it also seems to have a fruity smell to it. The beer has a nice plum flavor and other dark fruit flavors to it. The sweetness and malt flavors usually found it brown ales felt like they played a minor role in this beer. The beer is smooth with a nice carbonation.

Shoot. A nice looking beer with not much of a nose. But it's boring. Just fine. Only fine. And for some reasons, there's a bit of a cardboard aftertaste.
