3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance- dark brown, pours thick viscosity, decent head and retention
Smell- citus, very nice, doesn’t smell have malt aroma typical for brown ale, smells much more like an IPA.
Taste- Delicious. I like it very much. It’s a nice mix of Brown/IPA. The hops may be a bit overwhelming if you are looking for more malty, chocolate notes. A bit of an oily mouthfeel.
Overall- I had a second one. It’s pretty good. Would be really good with a cajun brat.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear, medium chestnut, half finger creamy head, nice lacing. Aroma slight chocolate, bready, caramel malt, floral hops. Taste a bit bitter floral and earthy hops, bready malt and slight caramel. Mouthfeel medium body lower carbonation, slight hop bite, dryish finish. Overall tasty, balanced, not quite brown ipa, perhaps brown bitter, maybe imperial bitter mild?

On tap at the Field House. Aroma is pine cone, biscuit, and walnut. Pours brown with a nice big frothy head. Taste is an odd mix of pine hop and dirty nut shells. Overall the two tastes clashed more than they complemented. Hard to swallow.

Great Brown Ale. Hoppy like India Pale Ale, though is more mild on the toungue, so it makes this beer more drinkable. Prominent beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 7-08-2011 (Bottle at Hall’s Tavern at Coventry-Fort Wayne, IN) This bottled beer pours a medium sized tan head that mostly diminishes, transparent copper body, fizzy carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, biscuits and citrus hops. The taste is bitter, caramel malt, some chocolate, citrus hops, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. The hops are upfront in the flavor, but not over the top hoppy tasting. This is a beer I would drink again.

Clear amber brown in color... Aroma of citrus hops, brown malts... Hop aroma fairly prevalent... Flavor is really nice, light and crisp body with citrus hops highlighted as the malts are fairly mild, mouthfeel is creamy from the nitro I had it on... Finish is perfect, just a hint of bitterness... Great beer
