Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a handglass.

A: Medium brown. Pours a 2 finger, frothy, brown-white head. Settles very slowly and unevenly, leaving some dry sticky residue behind as it does. Persistent lacing.

S: Roasted malt, plenty of raisin and molasses and some tea leaf.

T: Very woody roasted malt. Slight peaty bitterness.

M: Bitter notes linger on the palate briefly before disappearing into the nether.

D: Not much resistance but worth savoring.

Atmosphere is excellent. Very nice frothy head, and plenty of persistent lacing. Nose is roasted malt accentuated with sweet and herbal components. Hearty wood-roasted malt with a little bitter finish. Overall, this is a really good quaff.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a nice solid hazy brown hue with a good creamy light brown head that fades to leave a thin, soft blanket.

S - Aromas are tons of barley, sugars, grapefruit, pine, caramel. Nice.

T - Taste is more of the same with the hops and caramel mxing to create a bit of an herbal tea thing. Not really a huge fan, but darn are the citrus hops solid!

M - Mouthfeel is solid for the style. Very drinkable.

O - Overall, solid assessable offering for Baird.

A: The beer is clear copper in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high light beige head that died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of gooseberries and nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has an interesting mix of flavors of gooseberries and nutty malts along with hints of herbal hops and sweetness. A light amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and slightly watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The flavors of this beer seem hoppy for the style, but without the associated bitterness—it's like a hybrid between an English Brown Ale and an English Pale Ale. It is easy to drink yet quite flavorful.

Appearance- slightly hazy brown little head and little lacing.

Aroma- caramel, cofee/tofee vanilla some light florals.

Taste- crisp with a somewhat subdued malt character (as compared to newcastle) some buttery carmely flavors through out the middle and a little bit of a lingering bitter finish. Nobel hops

Mouthfeel- light to medium bodied, once the carbonation settles down

Overall- a decent brown not one I would necessarily seek out but good. I would say this might be more of an american brown because it is a little more hop forward than I am used to,

Appearance is deep brown in color and slightly opaque. Some carbonation but disappates quickly. Smell is a sweet malts with brown sugar and/or maple. Detect a hint of sour maybe from the generous hopping. Taste is well balanced with the malts appearing first and quickly finished with a hop twang but not over the top.

Pours a murky and turbid dark brown with a 1 inch foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. A good amount of sediment is seen floating around in the glass after the pour. Smell is of toasted malt, dark fruit, and some slight caramel notes. Taste is somewhat sour with some toasted malt, slight fruit, and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that smells better than it tastes in my opinion.
