Bottle at The Flying Saucer, Memphis, TN

A: The beer is brown when viewed from afar but is clear dark red in color when held up to a bright light. It poured with a thin off white head that left a collar around the edge of the glass. There is a moderate amount of visible carbonation.
S: Light aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of nutty malts, which are a bit stronger than the aromas in the smell.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an easy to drink brown ale that isn't that heavy on the palate.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear brown color with a small white head. The aroma is malt, toffee and yeast. The taste follows the nose.

From the 12 oz bottle in a snifter. This solid nut brown pours a clear
dark brown with red highlights and a nice head of off white foam that subsides
to a thick ring, thin light pool, and shows light soapy lacing. Nose of toasted malts
and a hint of chocolate and light breaded malts. Flavors lightly exceed the nose with
balanced toffee and chocolate notes with a hint of coffee on the rear with light breaded
malt flavors and subtle herbal hops. Nice mouth feel; medium body, medium
carbonation, and a lightly dry subtly sweet finish.

Overall a solid brown ale and one I must give thanks
to a friend from work who brought it in for me---Thanks Randy!

Cheers

part of a flight at The Casual Pint, Knoxville, TN

Nice looking brown ale, dk brown, off white head which retains.

not much on the nose, malts are prevalent.

Has a decent sweetness to it, and a bit of a bite in the finish.

mouth was medium.

All in all, an ok representation of an English Brown Ale.
