3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
First impression seemed very thin, but after warming up it had some nice roasted flavors along with spice and some nuts. little bit of hops. says citra hops but i didnt detect a lot of hopping. really thin for a 6%, even looks thin and has a small wispy head and clear light brown appearance. american brown ales are kind of weird and i dont know exactly who keeps buying them since beer snobs dont care for them. this one is a good example of the style though so i’ll give it some points for that. but i dont see myself getting a 6 pack of it, well, ever

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown with copper highlights and a rocky tan head that shows great retention. Aroma is very nice, sweet brown sugar and breadcrusts, hints of fruit. Nice malty palate, dark and sweet, with a very dry bitter finish. Certainly tasty, yet marred considerably by over carbonation and a hard mouthfeel. Some metal in the finish.

allllllllllright???? .. when i first heard of this, i really wanted to try this- but now thats its open and in front of me, not to happy .. . odd smell, like berry and old raisins .. . medium headring .. light lacing .. . hank hill is such a bitch .. . light mouth, good in that sense .. . some molasses, light berry skin, and a slight offness- not good .. . this was a huge letdown .. . i know anchor as being not spectacular at anything but always solid- this was crap .. . . I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample from a bottle at Microfest 2012. Pours a somewhat hazy chestnut color with a big, frothy off-white head. Notes of hazelnut, caramel, brown sugar, citrusy hops, wet tobacco leaves, and sweet bread. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a soft, bready mouthfeel that ends with a dank leafiness. Good brown.
