Thanks Rich!

Appearance: Clear auburn body capped by a thin layer of foam. Head retention is somewhat poor.

Smell: The English yeast strain is most immediately noticeable, lending quite a bit of red apple. Toasted malt comes out more as it warms, along with a nutty, earthy note.

Palate: Red apple, toast, roasted nuts. Quite a bit of dark fruit from the yeast. Initially sweet, and pretty light in body. Dries up in the finish with very gentle bitterness.

Overall: A pretty solid and traditional take on an English brown. Good stuff.
