Bottle. Body is a thin looking medium brown with a somewhat smallish head. Aromas are toffee and damp soil. Flavor has a more nutty edge that is decent, but not very complex. Finishes fairly sweet.

Ugh! I was barely able to finish this and if it wasn’t my last beer I probably would’ve dumped it. Aroma was weak. Not much to pick up other than a slight "beery" smell. Pour was a nice enough deep clear brown with a one finger near tan head. Taste was awful. Thin and watery with garbage, weak terpentine and moldy grass with a nasty bitter aftertaste. No I’ve never tasted any of those things, but I’ve smelled them and that smell is what this beer tasted like. I found myself waiting a lot longer before the next sip than most beers hoping that it would either get better or more would evaporate.

Pours reddish brown with a medium brown head. Aroma is caramel, nutty and roasty. Taste is sweet with the nuttiness coming through. Very smooth and easy to drink. This is underrated.

3 oz. draft sample. Rather similar to its sister brew, ABC Real Ale. A slight bitterness was present. Overall it was a tasty, sessionable beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle... dark clear mahogany, some copper in the middle, a big light tan head, good retention... weak nose that is mostly generic malt, a bit like a light quad no roast or nut notes of typical brown... really boring here, watery roast, just too thin and flavorless to drink, weird dry alcohol finish
