2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Old rating. Brown ale standard fare. Nutty and bit doughy. No real chocolate or hop presence. Boring but not bad.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From my future son ion law. Aroma is quite malty. Taste is rather obtuse. Yes, malty carries over and its a little annoying. Reminds me a little of nes castle, no?

12oz pour at Charleston Beer Works, pours a clear brown with some slim head. Nose has brown sugar sweetness, some malt, faint chestnut honey, some dried fruit. Flavor is the same, overly sweet, fig, caramel, some orange. Messy finish.

Smooth malty smell, hoppier than I thought...not bad though, malty finish, waters down with time but improves,

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ CLT Hilton. Aroma of slightly sweet malt. Dark brown color, copper highlights, of white head with pretty good lacing. Sweet flavor, light malt. No bitterness. Fairly high carbonation lends it a medium mouthfeel. Not a bad example of English brown ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep, sticky nuttiness. Caramel malt, thick body. English toffee, a touch of hoppiness. Butterscotch. Underrated.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Decent English style with bready notes from a nice English Malt finishing with more caramel than brunt notes. The aroma definitely has a basement smell in the best way possible. Definitely sessionable.
