from notes,

I have had this beer a few times now on tap at the pub and it has been consistently good.
The appearance is a nice clear brown for a brown ale. Nice head but dies fairly quick and not much lacing to speak of.

This is a straight forward brown ale. Good taste and feel but it is a bit thin on the mouthfeel. The taste is not complex but very smooth and easy drinking. It leaves the mouth fresh and clean, malty and low on bitter, not sweat either. I don't get much on smell but I need a lot for my nose to notice.

Overall this is a basic good pub beer that most people would enjoy, just not complex. A basic brown ale that is above average for all beers and easy to drink.

I've had this beer 2 times both on Growler fill gifts, Its consistent with its flavor and a easy drinking beer.

Appearance is nice and clear brown with a very thin head. (Possibly from growler fill)

Aroma is nil

Taste is clean and slightly malty. No forward hop bitterness of any means

Overall I would drink this if I was at the brewery but wouldn't go out of my way to chase this one down
