3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark brown with orange highlights. Creamy tan head. Light citrus hops in the nose, with a good bit of nutty toffee malt. FIrst impression is that this is quite watery. A pretty big nose had me expecting much more depth in the flavor and mouthfeel, but its not there. What I do get is just a balanced brown ale. Nutty raisins with a light citrus hop finish. Bitterness maintains balance. Nothing special, nothing offensive. Just a drinkable middle of the road beer.

Can @ Richard’s Tasting. Tossed by Loineshawn. Dark brownish pour with an off-white head. Smells of roasted malt, toast, and coffee. Some light toffee sweetness and earthy hops. Flavor is reminiscent of pumperknickle bread. Slight roast and coffee bitterness. Sweet toasted malt and toffee, a bit of cocoa, and earthy hop flavor and bitterness.
