Good, brown ale. It starts a little sweet then finishes a little sour with a metallic after taste. Its locally brewed so I like supporting my community by drinking it. If the pub doesn’t have anything darker this beer is my go to guy.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: APR 6, 2007 Tap. Slight sour vinegar/barnyard malt aroma. Medium reddish amber color with slight head. Very light brown sugar malt flavor. High carbonation. Despite this beer being very light, it was quite enjoyable - sort of like brown ale light.
