2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap @ Growler Guys. Pale golden color with a little white head. Nose is floral, sort of dirty, dandelion greens. Flavor is muted florals, herbal, and light malt. Some bitters, but a little bland. An uncharacteristic miss for Barley Browns.

I’m more an IPA, intense guy so have to respect the boundaries wen reviewing pales. barely browns favorite brewery and this one is flavorful, non-aggressive, a little more weight than most pales but still smooth & easy. aroma is light but spicy, resin & caramel & something. the flavor also, while light, keeps its balance, more malty than hoppy but not sweet. clean finish

Hazy golden color with creamy head. Dry Pale Ale, a bit papery, without notable malt or hop character, with very light chamomile touch.
Easy beer, but not bad.
