A good ale that does not taste anywhere as strong (8%) as it is.

Pours a clear light red with little head. Nice clean caramel malt aroma with little hops. Caramel and a bit of toffee amid a bread crust note. Nice caramel flavor with medium low hop bitterness. Nice bready notes throughout. A nice brown ale.
