3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle purchased as a single at Gomers in Lees Summit, Missouri. 2AD (Bottled on April 4, 2012) perforated stamp on the label. The pour is light haze brown copper with a two inch light tan head that is quite lasting. The aroma is fruit caramel sweet malt, along with a touch of yeastiness. The taste is nutty malt, only a bit of the malt fruit sweetness of the nose, along with sort of an off grain flavor. The palate is light to medium bodied, carbonation level pretty high, sweetness of dried fruit comes out a bit in the finish. Just ok.

Color is sparkling clear deep mahogany. Flaovr is slightly sweet, moderately acidic and sour to start, then finishes lightly acidic and mlightly to moderately bitter.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep coppery clear body with a medium white head. A bit lighter in color than I’d expect from a brown ale, but hey. Aroma is toffee, sweet caramel, nuts and hints of almonds. Nice. Taste is burnt sugar, toffee, milk chocolate, hints of nuts and salty licorice. Creamy, full-bodied palate. A very nice brown ale from Anchor, whom I’ve been waiting for a while to be impressed by lately.
