3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Alesmith Brewery. Nice brown-amber appearance, decent sized head, aroma is malty roasty. As expected, a nutty malt character balanced with roasted grain and light hops. A very nice easy drinking beer that hits itís target well.

I donít usually post my stuff on RateBeer because Iím lazy but the guys at AleSmith were really great to talk with. This beer had nice color. It balances hops and sweet chocolate better than any beer Iíve seen. Another greaat accomplishment by my new favorite brewery.

Poured a dark amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste of much of the same, with nuts, and a light hoppiness in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at The Liarís Club. The beer pours to a deep mahogany body with a lot of red highlights. The beer has a thick, dense, lively craem of wheat head. The beer has nice lacing. The aroma reminds me of raisin bread and light peanut butter. The flavor is quite good. Nice peanuts and walnuts surrounded by lots of various kinds of hops. Citrusy and grassy. Very flavorful. The palate is very creamy, medium-bodied, perhaps a touch over-carbonated.

sampled at the brewery.
Pours a dark brown w/ hints of red in it and a nice head w/ some decent lacing. Aroma is a full sweet one, carmels hints of roasty malt and maybe a touch of wood. Palate is avg. Flavor is a nice sweet carmel hints of hazzlenut maybe even touches of chocolate w/ a dry finish. This is a damn good brown.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at AleSmith Brewery Thanks to Peter for letting us in only 10 minutes before closing on a Saturday. Pours a dark mahogany brown color with a nice retentive sticky head. The nose is ripe with some caramel and various melanoidins along with a bit of roast and chewy toffee notes. The flavor is a little dry with a nice solid malty body and a creamy roudned finish. Balanced and tasty, a definite good drinker.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ho-Hum! Not bad - but certanly not great. Poured a woody nut-brown color - had high hopes based on alesmiths reputation, but they were let down a little. Certainly nt a bad beer - but not a rave either. A woody, nutty flavor that was a little better than the neutral nose. no variation in flavor - a littel bubble, but nothing that really riches out and grads ya. (But not offensive either). Better than other brown ales - would try again - maybe it was unfair - tasted after speedway stout.

Draft, Liarís Club from early Dec í05. Pours ruddy brown (looked dark but also was viewed in low lighting). Rich nutty caramel aromas and flavors, and a touch of roast and fruit. Very flavor-ful and with a nice body.
