2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 Bottle. Pours golden/amber with a smallish white head. Aroma is caramel, some honey, some spicy hops. Flavor is caramel, a bit grainy, some honey. Pretty sweet. Not much in the way of elements I associate with a brown ale. Mouthfeel is a bit too heavy.

Refrigerated bottle poured into a shaker. Pours clear dark amber with small white head. Some lacing, light body, low carbonation, syrupy texture, and off aroma. Taste is light roasted malt and honey. Pretty good, good amount of honey, but lighter than most brown ales.

12oz bottle. Looks good, tastes bad. Pours is copper-colored and clear, but no (very very faint) aroma! Lackluster attempt - "brown ale" is a cop-out. Tastes like nothing, especially not honey. Let this one stay at the truck stop.

Not a bad beer. Toasty enjoyable. I would get it again. Somewhat similar to the big name guys. But worth a try. On tap.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from liquor express. Pours dark honey with a half inch of khaki head. Why the hell anyone would put honey in a brown ale is beyond me. The taste is mushy and confused. The elements just donít blend together well. At least the taste, such as it is, doesnít linger.
