Decent Brown Ales are difficult things to get right in my opinion, and this sort of fell between two stools. The malty sweetness is there in the nose and the taste (which is a good thing), but the mouthfell let it down somewhat. A little too thin and watery for my taste.
Nice deep brown appearance, but lack of head and lacing definitely detracts form the look. There was a little chocolate in there, but I didn’t feel there was as much as some others have noted. The light drinking does mean that it has session possibilites, but frankly I would prefer a Brown that was more substantial.
