Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Has a translucent dark brown colour. There is one finger of head that fades rather quickly, with almost no lacing.

Smell: Earthy aromas of fruits, nuts and a hint of caramel.

Taste: Upfront, there are well-pronounced flavours of fruits, nuts, caramel, faint hops and a sweet maltiness that all tie together nicely. The finish is pleasant, yet unremarkable, with a lingering aftertaste.

Feel: Light to medium body that possesses a murky smoothness, which is complemented nicely by the low amount of carbonation.

Overall: A very solid if unremarkable English brown ale. I would recommend it.

One of the first non yellow fizzy beers I had. This beer will always be a fav. It has a nice malt flavour and is always available in a pinch.
