another entry from Anchor that leaves a bit to be desired. a decent brown, but for the money, there is better out there. flavor had a sort of skunky, dusty flavor in the front, like old dried out hops. not very pleasing. ill pass on this one next time.

pours clear brown with a lasting beige head and some sticky lacing. light aroma with sweet, malty notes with some nuttiness and maple. taste is hoppy for a brown ale with notes of dark, slightly roasty malt and some spices. finish is sweet with spice notes. a very subtle but enjoyable beer .

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled 11/9/2011. Pours slightly hazy reddish brown color with a nice 1-2 finger dense khaki head with great retention that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Some slight spotty lacing on the glass. Aromas of caramel, biscuit, molasses, toasted malt, herbal hop, pine, and light citrus. Some ok aromas, but there is some chemical-like off flavor noticeable. Taste of big caramel, biscuit, roasted nut, toasted malt, molasses, herbal hop, pine, and light citrus. Light bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, roasted nut, biscuit, citrus, and herbal on the finish for a short bit. Nice flavor balance with a good malt backbone. Medium carbonation and body; with a nice and fairly creamy mouthfeel. No alcohol warming noticed at all; very smooth to drink. Overall this is a fairly nice and enjoyable brown ale. Nice malt backbone as I like in brown ales; and very smooth to drink.
