    Fraguant nose with nice hints of malt and grilled cereals. The robe is clear and shows a dark caramel tone with very little carbonation. The taste is sweet, hoopy and well balanced. The ale is full-bodied and delivers a little sharpness that complements really well its overall character and finishes with an agreable vapory bitterness that is not overpowering the rest. A very nice product I have been a fan of for a long time.

    [Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

    Poured dark brown in color with a small light brown head that dissapated rapidly. The aroma was that of sweet malts with a bready overtone. It tasted slightly bitter and watery with hardly any aftertaste. The mouthfeel was a very light and bland. Overall an average beer. Have had much better Brown Ales

    Always a good choice at a place with limited draught choices. Enjoyable as a dinner beverage or as the drink of choice for a night out!

    This ale is simply fantastic. I used to enjoy it at my favorite bar when it was readily available. However, the market in this town trends to the domestic light lagers. However, I do prefer darker beers. So this one is fantastic. The flavor is strong at first (if you're not used to ales). It's smooth. It has a great head, foamy and thick. I'll enjoy this as my own beer of the night. Mixing it with others isn't great. The flavor tends to be distinct, yet great. The colder the better, in my opinion. the aroma is great too.
