Pours a golden brown without much head. What head it has leaves decent lacing on the glass. Smell is minimal, mildly fruity. Taste is also mild. Bready, fruity, overall: uninspiring

This is a nice smooth beer with light bitters. There are notes of caramel. Not much froth when poured. Clear Amber colour. Overall a very nice beer and will be something I keep on hand at all times.

A very good tradition brown. Malty with only a hint of hops. This is for those of us who love browns and malty beers and hate the IPA craze.

This is a drinkable, but very simple beer. Not a heck of a lot of taste or feel.
