Toit’s interpretation of the Northern English brown ale is a flavorful, malt-focused beer with a nutty, biscuity, caramelly character, and a slight smoke finish. It has a deep mahogany to brown color, with a moderate, off-white to light tan head. It has a gentle malt sweetness in an overall balanced beer. Even though the hop bitterness is evident, it is restrained and not over bitter. The hop aroma is low to none to showcase all the malt flavors. The malt character is full of biscuity and nutty flavors and aromas, with a gentle smoke lingering aftertaste.
