A light red-brown color with some warm clarity. The head is cropped to a white cap of about a quarter-inch height, but insulates the beer solidly.

Toasty brown ale malt with some light leafy hop, English-style earthiness, toffee, and faint coffee. Smells semi-dry and robust for the style.

A solid burst of flavor of fresh barley, dry toffee, herbal leaf hops, rigorous toast, unleavened bread, and a hush of breakfast coffee. A little floral, near the finish, with a good gut of overseas malted grain. A great afternoon drink with some singed sugars offering a heighted bitterness. Sturdy body and a zesty carbonation that drinks like a fresh local. Consumer approved.

Poured on-tap in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, slightly opaque, muddled brown color with a filmy, bubbly, off-white head. Aromas of nut, cream, and highlights of bitter coffee. Flavors of cream and bitter coffee forward, with light nutty sweet highlights. Thin, crisp body with a roasted, bitter aftertaste. Clean, crisp finish.

Appearance - Sweet tea, eggshell head leaves spotty lacing.

Aroma - Watered down coffee beans, sweet malt.

Taste - Caramel, and slight iced coffee.

Mouthfeel - Watery, light bodied. Carbonation level is perfect.

Overall - More of a mild brown than American brown. Very easy drinking.
