The lazy brown dog jumps over the quick sly fox. Pour was a chestnut brown color with tan highlights. A nice head with a good pour. Limited lacing but good head retention.

The nose has an English malty profile. A sweeter almost molasses like aroma with a lighter chocolate undertones. Some astringency but limited overall. Also some toffee touches but not much on the hops side.

The taste has the malty and smooth presence of an English brown. A nice complexity on the malt side with noticeable chocolate flavors. Some bready and astringent notes but some off higher alcohol tastes that act as a deterrent. The hops are more noticeable with some earthy and citrus but still remain second to the malt bill.

The body is full as should be. Some sweeter notes rather limits the mouthfeel that could use more chocolate notes but balances well. Good carbonation for style. Overall a very nice drinking brown.

Review from 09/26/06

Poured from bottle into standard pint glass.

A - Other than the head, looks like a cola. Head is about a half finger, made up of tight bubbles, and thick looking.

S - Roasted caramel malt dominates here. Sweet and malty. A bit of hops poking through.

T - Up front is a big malty sweetness. Hops in the middle. Then it blends into a coffee like roasted bitterness at the end.

M - Medium bodied. Carbonation is good.

D - Easy drinker. Could down a 6er without a problem.
