      Quite amber, quite thick head. Good flowery hop aroma, not at all overpowering. Thin, but good crystal flavors. Nice carbonation bite without being fizzy. Hops well in background. Not really a "16", but close enough today.

      Overall Impression (3)
      Deep red, fairly low carbonation, fairly high head. Some alcohol in nose, maybe some fusels? Brown sugar behind that. Good body, very sweet. Fair amount of brown sugar flavor, and a hint of alcohol. Carbonation and bitterness work well as afterthoughts. Some brown malt flavor in finish.

      Red-brown. Even smells brown! Brown sugar aroma. Brown sugar very apparent in flavor. Full, sweet, good carbonation without being fizzy. THE Brown Ale. "Tek t'Dog Oot Fer A Walk," it says on the sign.
