Draft, pulled through a randall with apples, nutmeg and cinnamon. Very creative! Aroma of molasses. Taste is like brown roasted apple juice. Interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Pours a clear, medium brown body with a slight, slender white head.
Smell: A nose of bread, barley, and a dusting of cocoa powder backed ever so slightly by hints of dried herbs.
Taste: Lightly sweet, toasty malts, with some herbal hop tones akin to a brewed cup of tea. Then, some late-arriving sweetish hints of caramel and cocoa. Very, very minor touch of citrus fruit. Lightly bitter. Drying, but elements of the darker malts leaning towards cocoa on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s okay, decent for a light, earthy brown ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Blue Water Seafood Company. Amber-brown pour with a thin ring head of suds that leaves light lace. The nose is of malt and legumes. The flavor is similar: Malty upfront, with some legumes and almonds settling in mid-palate. It finishes with just a hint of yeast and a lingering almond skin bitter. The mouthfeel is clean and refreshing, with a good substantial body. Nice brown here, especially for a style that is not my first choice. Enjoyably delicious.

Beer #8 Asheville trip. Not my favorite. Medium brown, decent head. Light malt aroma. Flavor is just sort of random caramel accented malts and vaguely earthy hops. Didn’t really strike me as a brown. Just sort of hit me as an "ale." Just kind of there.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear mahogany-amber - pale buff head is thin, but that may be the ay it was poured. Malty aroma has earthy and cinnamon hints. Flavor starts with a malty core and adds notes of cinnamon and horehound, as well as an earthy hint. Mouthfeel is fairly firm and somewhat fizzy. A good stunt.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of sweet bready malt, floral hops, bitter hops, citrus, and caramel malt. Flavor of jam, light fruits, sweet malt. Ok, a little sweet and boring. It doesn’t really fall into a particular style (and it’s description did not name a style), but I guess amber ale fits best.
