Pours a cola color. Aroma of nuts. Winter nuts, as far as nuts go, these are all up and prominent relatively speaking.

Smooth non offensive nut brown ale. Toffee in there. Average stuff, wouldn't really describe it as an amber ale though.

Light bread and kettle sugars on the nose and a suspicion of light fruit. It pours reddish amber with a slight orange tint under a lacy ½” white foam cap. It has a lightly malted palate with a light sweetness and a spicy dry finish with traces of anise or cardamom. Medium to medium full body, medium to medium low carbonation.
