2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clean brown color with a finger of foam. The nose is citrus pine and round malts. The palate is the same with nice balance between hop notes and malty sweet undertones. Restrained and lighthanded and highly drinkable. Nice bitterness cleans up the finish !

This is a pretty outstanding brown. Floral hoppy nose, mixed with a bit of maltiness. Thick full palate, roasted, chewy, complex. Really decent, and I didn’t see this coming. Thanks for the trade Ron!

Multiple samples @ Empire Brew Fest. Hazy brown color with a thick off white head. Nose is fruity hops and roasted barley. Flavor had roasted malts displaying the nutty and caramel flavors. The bitterness from the hops really shines in the finish. Citrus and line pine notes. Medium body with a nice clean finish. A nice hop forward brown ale.
