bottle thanks to lou. sweet smelling brown ale, lots of vanilla and chocolate notes in the aroma as well. almost artificially sweet, but not too over-the-top luckily. very sweet, very thin--less attenuation and more everything else would help this beer. a session brew for sure.

on tap at bcbc, weak caramel aroma on a golden brown body with very little head. flavor had some nice caramel tones, with a bit of spices. mouthfeel was slightly creamy. nothing special about this beer, it wasnt bad, but as far as the sampler i was having went, it didnt excite me at all.

Brownish ruby pour. Nutty caramel aroma, hints of cinamon. Interesting muted hop flavor, and slightly bitter. Touch of sour bite, very light carbonation. Seems a bit thin. Thx to Lou18 for the trade!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown, with a red tint, good sized biege head. Cinnamon toasty aroma, with a bit chocolate thrown in for good measure. Toas and bread flavors up front, with a mellow hop bit at the finish. I didn’t get any of the sourness that some the raters experienced. Thanks to Lou18 for the trade!

Tap at the pub. Poured a light brown. Nutty aroma, sweet and malty. This was a little light in mouth feel, but had a smoothness to make it a possible session brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a reddish caramel color with a small, off white head that left very light lacing on the glass. Butterscotch, diactyl, nuts, citrus hop aroma. Dry, citrus hop taste, light fruitiness, sweet malt and little cardboard. Average mouthfeel. Not bad.

Draft at the Leigh Valley Brewfest in Easton, Pa. Boring brown. Tasted what is should be. Nothing stood out.
