4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From bottle. Pours ruby brown liquid. Nice tan creamy head with small bubbles, that lasted. Gorgeous ale aroma, chocolate, caramel, cherry, candied fruits. Simply excellent. Medium body, soft carbonation, but very drinkable because of a bit sour finish. Taste is fruity sweetness, caramel, red fruit, nice acidity in the aftertaste. Excellent brown ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle, dark copper colour, small mostly vanishing off-white head, little bit oflacing. Moderately malty roasty aroma with notes of caramel and nuts, moderate to heavy hops with a hint of lemon, notes of plum and cassis. Taste is initially slightly sweet and acidic, turning into a moderately bitter and slightly sour finish with a moderately astringent feel. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Very pleasant and drinkable ale that also has plenty of character

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle: Nose is strong malt leading to toffee, apples, leading to some citrus tones. Well balanced nose for a brown ale.
Taste is malt, apples, through to sweet brown ale tones then a citrus IPA ish note before back to a brown ale. Very sweet in the finish.
This was an interesting attempt to do an American style Brown Ale, but does not work for me.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Deep copper color, tan head. Washcloth aroma (weird). Homebrewy flavor with roasted malts and some coffee. Bitter coffee finish. Medium-full body, medium carbonation. I think I prefer the stuff I make myself.

Draft at a tasting event. From notes. Citrus and caramel with a decent tropical fruit kick. A little bitter grapefruit in there too. Not too bad.
