Autumn Ale

12oz single from Total Wine, Kennesaw, GA, USA.
Old Ale? Not by any stretch of the imagination!
Decent dark brown pour with some ornage highlights at the edges. A pretty nice head straight out of the bottle, but retention and lace (although there) are not what it initially promised.
Nose reveals a little sweet nuttiness and some plenty of malts.
Mouthfeel is a little thin but the body and tastes are nicely balanced in a simple way. Although the alcohol is nicely hidden, I’d still think this beer would do better between 3 and 5% rather than up near 7%. Pretty smooth and well rounded with a small hop bite in the finish. Aftertaste is a typical, moreish linger well-balanced malt and hop merge.
Essentially this looks, tastes and drinks like an English Brown Ale to me.
Tasty, well worth a visit.
