  • Pours brown in color with a thin tan head. The head dissipates quickly, leaving a thin swirl of foam resting on top. Very little lacing.

    The aroma is a nice blend of sweet malts, bread, and nuts.

    The taste follows the aroma fairly closely. Sweet brown sugar, toffee malts, bread and nut like flavors blend together and create a very drinkable well balanced beer. A touch of spice is noticeable in the finish and the aftertaste.

    Medium body with medium carbonation. Watery mouthfeel with a sweetness on the lips.

    Overall, a very solid brown ale. In fact I would say that this is one of the best traditional brown ales that I have ever had. Everything is well balanced and very drinkable. A top notch brown ale from Smuttynose! Try one!
