Impressive beer from Left Hand, so far I have liked everything they have to offer. Sweet caramel aroma and nice malty/brown sugar flavor. Very easy to drink, and it is a good beer to keep on hand for when you have Bud drinking company and want to introduce them to something new. I'll definitely try this one again.

Clear deep brown, head is a little poor, 1/4 inch and shrinking fast. Sweet smells, a little honey-like. Malty, malty flavors, lots of brown sugar characters that are nice, a little clovey hops zazz but there needs to be a little more for me. OK mouthfeel but it fades fast in the back of the mouth. As Browns cross over into other beer flavors, this isn't much of a stand out. Good drinkability but a lot of similarities to the Black Jack Porter...

Presentation: 12oz brown bottle. Bottled on date stamped on the side.

Appearance: Slightly hazy dark copper beer with a sticky off-white creamy head. It settles to a patchy lace with decent head retention.

Smell: Rich caramel, pale malts, lots of grain and raw hop in the nose.

Taste: An ultra smooth and creamy on the palate beer. Very sweet, malty and full bodied with caramel, toasted, biscuit and dry grain malt flavours. Bitterness is mild with a light (almost rindy) twang, backed by a crispness and tingling carbonation. This is followed by a tea-like sweetness and a slight fruity flavour that can be likened to faint pineapple in character. Finishes with some more biscuit and dry grain flavours.

Notes: This is one hell of a brown ale! Most exceptional, spot on for the style and definitely one for others to follow.
