Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English tulip pint.

t: Slight fruit notes over caramel malt. Some bitterness lingers a short time.

m: Light. Occasional watery feel.

o: A pretty good American brown, the fruit notes mellow out but keep it tasty.

Deep brown, head settles to nothing after a few minutes. Nutty, subtle vanilla aroma. Taste is nutty, malty, vanilla notes. Thin body, which is infinitely drinkable.
