Reviewed from notes. She pours a nice brown colored body with a decent sized foamy off-white head that gave some nice clingy lacing. The aroma has a nice nutty caramel maltiness with a decent balance of subdued hops. The taste is mainly sweet with some balance as it warms. On the palate, she sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable, dry and bitter aftertaste and finish. Overall, pretty nice English styled brown ale always worthy of more pours during Autumn.

This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a muddy burnt brown color with a one finger white to off white foamy head. Light stringy lacing.
The smell had some roasty nuts. Light caramel to toffee malts. Somewhat roasty.
The taste was moderately sweet with a nice balance to the roasty notes. Lingering semi-dry sweet roasty aftertaste. Lightly sweet on the finish.
The mouthfeel was a bit lighter than expected for a Brown ale. Super sessionable. Slightly creamy.
Overall, not bad, probably could be "beefed" up a bit more in the feel.

Malty, a bit bland and a tiny bit sour but not in the way I prefer.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear deep mahogany brown with a short white head.

Aroma: Smells of earth, tea leaves, caramel, nuttiness, and some soft brown bread.

Taste: Caramel and malt are right up front, with the earth and tea leaf notes noticeable, too. Ever so slight sweetness. Nuts are there, too.

Mouthfeel: Nice depth - it's approachable and sturdy.

Overall: Very nice, simple, tasty brown ale. Great for a cool autumn evening. I had this with some vegetable soup and bread and cheese. Tasty pairing.
