Pours an amber brown color with a quarter inch yellow tan head. The head dissipates quickly, leaving a ring of foam around the edges of the glass and a swirl of foam resting on top. Very little lacing.
The aroma is simple. Sweet Malts and nuts.
The taste is fairly mild with sweet malt and a nutty flavor and finishes with an odd metallic flavor that lingers in the after taste with a hint of coffee and dark fruit. A fairly sweet flavor from start to finish.
Light body with medium carbonation. A slightly grainy mouthfeel with a dryness in the finish.
Overall, I am not very impressed. Starts with some nice brown ale flavors, but they are relatively mild and then everything is lost to a strange metallic flavor that lingers on the palate. An easy drinking beer, but the flavors are off. Give one a try and decide for yourself.
