3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
October 2010. Sampled at the brewery. Redbrown to copper color with a white head. Very hoppy for a brown ale, which is a plus in my book. Goes well with the caramel, malt and nutty aromas.

Pours a dark copper with very little head. Really nice grassy grapefruit aroma. Some malty sweetness is balanced by the hops in the middle but a soft roasted quality exists in the finish. Just enough resin lays on the tongue at the end.

Brown lightly transparent appearance with a big white head. Light malted scents. IT has a thin body a malted mellow balance that fades quick. This was on nitro tap so it added a nice creaminess to the texture.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
In short: A sweet brown ale. Meh.
How: Nitro-tap at Farmhouse Tap & Grill, Burlington VT.
The look: Clear copped body by a medium beige head.
In long: The very discreet nose only offers mild toasted cereals notes with distant nuttiness. In mouth the beer offers a standard mouthfeel with medium body and medium carbonation. Taste has a solid malt backbone, strong toastiness, peanut shells, baguette crust, caramel. Shy leafy hops. This beer is described as a hoppy brown ale but to me this was pretty much the opposite, this is a brown ale on the sweet side of the style. This was pretty much the exact opposite of what I was hoping it would be, like when I thought my wife wrote me a long love letter and after reading the first paragraph I googled the meaning of “irreconcilable differences” and realized it really wasn’t a long love letter.

Had a taste of this on tap from Alexandrias in Findlay on nitro. Tasty, if a little lightweight from the nitro.

Pours a clear, dark brown with a medium mocha head. It has a mostly roast aroma with a hint of citrus. The taste is medium on both bitter and sweet. It has a medium to full body with a light, thin texture. This is a very enjoyable beer and it wouldn’t mind grabbing one should I find it available at a bar.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice clear cinnamon brown with a thick and rather persistent fluffy wheat head. Malty aroma has hints of cloves and caramel and a snip of yeast. Malty flavor has firm notes of hay, cloves, caramel and resin, plus nutty and earthy hints. Texture is smooth and a little thin but fairly fizzy, leaving a rather hoppy finish. May this give you pleasant flashbacks.
