3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A rather old rating, finally getting entered now. This moose came from John’s Grocery in Iowa City, and poured a dark brown with a modest tan head. Smells of warm toasty malt and coffee. Pleasant nutty roast flavor, just a bit thinner than I’d wish for initially, but a few more sips in the light-leaning body seems important to the very refreshing briskness of the beer. Faint woody bitterness. This could pass for a mild, which is a very good thing in my book.

This one was a real surprise. Waited a long time to try this. Medium brown color with a nice head. Aroma is weird. Smells cheap and grainy. Taste is slightly metallic, some malts with a very unpleasant aftertaste. Disappointing brown ale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From 355 ml can. Pours a clear chestnut brown with a small off-white head. Faint aromas of raisins, caramel and malt. Taste is gentle dark fruit and more caramel with a slight coffee bitterness. Fairly short finish with a light fruity aftertaste. Straightforward but very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours light brown with a tan/beige head with a slight haze. Caramel and toffee on the nose with some spice and fruity hop esters. Toffee and caramel dominate the flavour with a surprising hop presence. Roasty flavours also emerge. Nothing really that makes this beer amazing, but it is solid. Great to sink a few

A good beer, a bit to much hop aroma/flavor and not quite enough bitterness to balance.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Typical nearly opaque brown appearance with no head. Unsubstantial aroma consisting of malt, roast and caramel. Very boring brown. Extremely thin and watery. The flavours are adequately described by the aroma. Simple and feeble. Don’t quite understand the praise for this one.

Good! Nutty and roasty and not too sweet. A great specimen for a Brown ale.
