3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Subtle aroma, pours brown in color, about what you would expect from an iced tea. A thick head that settles and leaves just a slight foam at the top. Tastes ’roasted’, and leaves a somewhat dry feeling aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark amber pour with moderate bubbly light tan head. Nutty aroma with some caramel and bread present. Taste is light roasted malt and with some nuttiness and a touch of caramel sweetness. Finishes on a very slight bitter note. A fairly tasty brown ale, although a touch more hops on the nose and palate would have been welcome.

This beer pours a bright copper color with a foamy, off-white head. It has nice head retention and lacing. It has a light citrus hoppy aroma with a hint of toasted malts. The taste is malty and bready with a nice hop finish. Very enjoyable and refreshing. It is lightly carbonated, the body leaves a bit to be desired, but it’s still quite delicious. I would serve this with a mushroom swiss burger or a meatloaf-yum!

I was lured into purchasing a 12 pack of this because of an alluring price ($15) and the gorgeous new packaging and label. You see they still have the great horned owl, but now it’s fall, not winter. The owl sits on a tree limb in a forest of autumnal orange splendor. This artwork was very appealing to me, thus the purchase. The beer itself is very good. Malty with a hint if bitterness. Dry mouthfeel. Pretty satisfying.

Easter tasting @ jbean’s. Only brown ale that I have liked nearly as much as the Pullman. Sweet honey, bready (surprisingly!), chocolate, very rich malt. Lip-smackingly delicious.

3.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 19/20
12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Beautiful dark brown cocoa color with an amazing fluffy white head that sticks around for a bit. Tastes extremely smooth with hints of chocolate and malt. Only lacking feature was aroma.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice dark brown with red hues. Aroma of roasted malts, toffee, and caramel. Tatse is very well balanced of roasted malt, nuts, toffee, cocoa and caramel, offset perfectly with hops. Great brown ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very good brown ale from one of my favorite micros. An aroma of roasted and caramel malts. A flavor to match. Somtimes cloudly if not poured or stored properly. Only major drawback is the slightly thin palate. A very good brown.
