Easy drinking beer. Low hoppiness. nice finish, crisp and clean with nice taste. Good for drinking with a meal pairing well with almost any food. This beer will find itself in my fridge on many occasions. Nice brown ale.

If you like a "session" beer, this is the one for you, but for taste and body, it is not my cup of tea. I was disappointed at its watery texture and lack of flavor.

L-Pours a dark brown cokey beer. Fizzy head that quickly dissipates.
S-Roasted malts, sweet chocolate, brown sugar, also white chocolate?
T-Fresh, sweet, beer with low bitterness. Tart flavor as well.
F- Fresh and crisp.
O- Solid beer. Easy drinkability. A classic in my book.
