A vigorous pour into my 25cl tulip glass produces a two-finger thick, darkish, tan colored head. The beer is a concentrated amber, dark brown color that shows a brilliantly clear, full ruby hue when held up to the light. Quite fruity smelling with notes of raisins, a bit of prune and dried berry notes. These notes have a backdrop of toasty, browned, whole grain bread crust and toasted saltine crackers. A serviceable aroma, that is not bad, but not all that remarkable either.

Lightly sweet tasting with a definite fruitiness that makes it taste like washed out raisin juice with a touch of prune thrown in. This finishes with some bitter toasted malt and hop notes that provide a touch of balance to the sweetness, though the sweetness does a good job of lingering on the tongue after the beer has left my mouth. Fairly light bodied, definitely quaffable, but the residual sugars to contribute a light viscousness that keeps this from being anywhere near water. Toasted grain flavors with just a touch of roast character to it at the back of this beer and some light toffee notes join the caramelized malt notes that are more at the front of each sip contribute to the malt focus of this beer.

A decent brown ale, that is focused on the malt and not much in the way of hop character. Not bad, I just don't seem to have a lot to say about it, which seems to be what detracts from this experience.
