Postmortem Brew Review
Clear pale brown color.
Almost no boquet, save for some malt aroma.

Very dry tasting with negligent
Minimal clinging head lace, at best.
Light flavor, light body; watery taste.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
I find that Brown Ales are in the realm of wowing me, or not.  This one did not wow.  I think the English have them (nut browns) down pat for the most part and there must be some super secret ingredient that they are not willing to share with the rest of the world.  

It was very drying on the tongue and no noteworthy tastes to mention, other than a strong malt presence.  It was so drying, I had to have another beer to liven up my taste buds again.  In the future, I will most likely seek out those from the UK, when in a mood for a proper brown ale.
