type: english brown ale
so i’m parlaying my success with samuel smith’s brewery with this… it’s a really good brown ale — not the run of the mill brown ale, mind you.
brought this to enjoy at andy’s and adam’s for the usa v spain futbol game (who woulda guessed the outcome of that game?)
it pours and looks like every brown ale you’ve seen — dark brown with little head (like me… what?)
the taste was very sweet — i noted caramel and toffee in the flavor… wasn’t expecting that, but was pleasantly surprised. matched with some good cheese whose names i can’t remember off the top of my head… hint hint
