12oz bottle, bottled 330th day of 2013, poured into an O'so snifter today, 2/17/2014. Not the first time I've had this, but somehow the first time I'm sitting down to review this.

App- Dark amber/light brown body, one finger tan head, fair amount of retention and lacing

Smell- Sweet brown malts, candied sugar, some breadiness, noble hops, a bit of yeast

Flavour- Brown sugar, malts, noble hops, a bit of spicy yeast, very clean and not complicated

Mouthfeel- Lighter bodied, fairly watery, quite very easy to drink. No indication of ABV.

Overall- Good brown ale, nothing special, but still a solid beer that goes for a good price point.
