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.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Smell: Almost nothing, very light malts.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Light malts and hops.

Overall: Not too bad, but I probably will not buy again.

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.
