Just returned from Montana and tried most local brews. This was by far the best. For a brown ale, this brew is loaded with flavor. Hops are present and there’s a smack of malts. Really a nice balance and I’m an IPA fan by nature. Brought back some extras to enjoy for a while.

12 oz bottle from Whole Foods. Nose is bland, a little yeast and not much else. Taste of toasted malts with hints of caramel and chocolate. Smooth with mild carbonation. Bready malt aftertaste with little bitterness. Mildly sweet which makes it session-able. Over all, an enjoyable brown ale.

One of my favorite easy drinking beers, Chocolate, malty, nutty. Pours red/ brown with creamy cappuccino head. Nice body with flavors similar to the aroma with a touch of fruit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a bottle purchased at CVS in San Antonio. Pours a dark brown with only slight head - rather under-carbonated. Pleasant slightly sweet, creamy taste with hints of toasted malts and a slightly nutty flavour. Pleasant malty aroma. Some hop flavour to balance the sweetness, but not much bitterness. Slightly stronger than a typical British example.This is a really nice, easy-drinking brown ale. Very pleasant.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weak pour but contains a sweet malty nose that is pleasant. Some chocolate notes. Decent balance of toasty malts and a light hoppy bitterness. Realizing I’m not a big fan of this style in general.
