Tap at Seven Bridges during RBWG 2013. Pours. Lear brown with a fine, creamy head. Pretty simple stuff, but a bit sweeter than most brown ales, which I actually like. Light dirt bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, toasty bread. Fine.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sparkling clear mahogany ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head.
The aroma is of milk chocolate, maple syrup and just a touch of evergreen. Perfectly balanced, malty, tangy and acetic flavor. Too light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Refreshing. Doesn't really meet my criteria for an excellent brown ale, but I'm in Florida, the home of hot, humid Summers. This brew matches the climate nicely.
