3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle, via kyzr. Pours a clear dark brown body under a smallish fizzy beige head that fell to a patchy partial covering. Aroma is of nutty and husky grains, some minimal hoppiness, and a touch of alcohol. The flavor is as thin as the usual Brown Ale. Just a dry nuttiness with a distinct crystal malt graininess. Finishing rather short and slightly sweet. Mouthfeel is light bodied, kinda thin, with moderate fizzy carbonation. Another nondescript Brown Ale.
