Notes / Commercial Description:
This English-style brown ale has an alluring mahogany color capped by a rich foam head.

It's ripe fruit notes and malty, sweet finish are counterbalanced by a subtle hop bitterness and aroma.

Poured into a Kansas City Royals pint glass, but do not worry, the mediocrity of the team does not affect the beer. In this case, the beer was just mediocre. Thin, thin, thin and only slightly flavorful. Light brown in appearance (is this darker on tap?), and no head to speak of. Luckily, I only had one bottle of this in a mix-and-match 6'er. Won't try again from the bottle.

Fair head for a brown with some lingering lacing on the glass. Color is very clear for a brown. A very mild nutty aroma. Not impressive. Taste and mouth feel are extremely thin. There's really not much here to satisfy. Given Arcadia's strong distribution in Michigan, I expected a lot more from them. This is way too bland. Pass it up.
