3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown, sweet aroma with a malty nuttiness. Rich with very nice roasted nut and chocolate notes. Still manages to be fairly crisp, with a strong finish leaving only a touch of bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
clear, pale brown color, good head, rocky, fizzy, with nice lacing.
Aroma, cola and nuts.
Taste: mildness supreme, very little actual action on the palate, almost no hoppiness, but a good malt quotient. Finish barely exists, body is very thin, ...and if I seem to stand on the verge of condemning the brew, at the same time, I can understand that it actually acheives itís aims. A light, unimpressive quaffer, a la Newcastle...nothing wrong with that, the stuff sells, folks like it, but it leaves me cold. I was harsh on the finish, though, for it does carry on for a time, with a caramelly nut flavor.
Iíve yet to have a brew from Avery I didnít like, this one I liked the least...eh, but thatís me...

This bottled brew poured a ;arge head of foamy finely sized light brown colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. Its body was trans parent carbonated and ruby red brown colored. It had a very mild brown beer malty aroma and a mildly tingly malt hop palate with a slight hop bite. The flavor contained notes of malt hop and mild red and brown beer.

Pours a dark clear brown with a thin white head that doesnít last. Sweet, toasted, and woody aroma, with notes of cinamon. Thin mouth feel. Nice malty flavor, but a little bland. For a brown ale itís pretty good. But itís still a brown ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pleasant brown. Roasty toasty notes up front. Far too drinkable maybe means not enough complexity. A slight disappointment considering their other brews, but still worth pouring one back. Slightly sweet with a nice hoppy finish.

22oz. bottle. Poured a medium sized ivory head with fine-medium sized bubbles. The body was opaque and uncarbonated with a dark brown hue. The aroma was malty, caramel and chocolate. The flavor was sugary with a hop bite and a slight coffee taste. The mouthfeel of this beer was smooth.

A nice brown ale and a nice change of pace from the hoppy beers I have been drinking lately. A very smooth beer and recommended.

Nice brown ale, malt-forward but sweetness tempered by nice roasted flavors. Mellow in the mouth, hop bite keeps the finish clean.
