draft, meh. this one was too sweet and one-dimensional. Wasn’t the biggest fan. Caramel adn sticky sweet with a thin body.

Pours dark brown with a reddish glow in the light. A foamy, beige head fades to a ring in a minute or two. Moderate lacing. Nose is malty with hints of cola. Taste is sweet, but the hop comes through nicely. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Nice brown ale.

Big bottle from Mike. Aroma of chocolate bar and malts. Pours brown and gritty with a nice medium white head. Taste is chocolate, malt, malt, and more malt. This is a deliciously frothy malt bomb of a brown ale. Really enjoyed this one.

12oz bottle. Filtered ruby amber-copper color. Thin, soda-like head. The aroma is mildly nutty, with lot of caramel sweetness. Leaning into what I’d guess it amber malt a little too much..there are cherry vanilla tones that I don’t really want or expect from the style..but as I sip, it grows on me. It is balanced, with a nice spicy hop accent. Not really nailing it, but an enjoyable beer, sort of antiquated.

Brown color with small tan head. Aroma of malt and grass. Medium body. Flavor dry malt, a little nutty, pleasant and not complex. Nothing particularly bad, or good to say, decently average overall.

Kind of oddly sour and malty sweet without too much else going on. Another boring brown that doesnt do it for me.

On tap in the tasting room. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Soft cocoa, nutty. Toasty malt, wheat and nutty gentle malt. Light bitterness, easy and crisp.
