3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of daknole. Pours a crystal clear copper color with a thin off white ring. The aroma has a pleasing honey sweetness with caramel and some fruits. The flavor opens with a honey laced caramel topped bread before becoming more dry and bready in the finish. Medium bodied and enjoyable to the end. This is one of the better brown ales I’ve tried. Thanks Dak!

Bottle...thanks to backforty. Pours a nice clear brown color with a small mostly white head. Aroma starts with a nice dose of honey and caramel, followed by a lightly yeasty and bready note. Flavor is loaded with nice honey notes, caramel, very light hops and a small alcohol warmth. Good beer for a style that is usually botched.

Sample. Mild malt aroma. Taste was above all else grain & nut... after that some watery malt (didn’t notice any honey). This beer just didn’t work for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample at the 2nd Annual Rocket City Brewfest. Amber in the glass with a thin off-white head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Aromas of malt, honey, and nut. The flavor found a chocolate/caramel blend with a nut backing and a slight hint of grain. Light to medium body, sweet, and honey nut aftertaste.
