Bottle (12oz). Via trade with Oakbluff. Clear deep mahogany pour, small fizzy off-white head. Mildly sour caramel malt aroma, lemony and nutty. The taste follows - nutshell roast malt, light lemon juice, a bit of sour currant or cranberry, and slight dry weedy hop bitterness ... I don’t DISlike it, but it seems thin and stuck somewhere between sour ale and brown ale. Watery, flat body, medium acidity, quick taste drop-off leaving a mildly bitter/sour aftertaste. Odd - honestly if this were called a sour ale I might give it a higher score.

Malty brown, pours brown with initial white foamy head. Some bitterness apparent, but well washed over with malt, making it easy drinkable but essentially another malt. A bit of choco malt too.

A mediocre brown but spectacular compared to the pale ale. Nutty and mildy roasted with a residual sweetness.

12 oz. bottle. Nutty, dry, slightly sharp aroma features Nutella, toast, carob, and caramel scents. Interesting smell. Pours a clear, dull copper to light auburn. Sparkling liquid. Large amount of fluffy, cream-colored head. Produces a smattering of lacing. Simple, sweet taste features caramel and brown sugar flavors. Dull aftertaste. Light body and watery; insubstantial. A bit lively on the palate. This is not my style of beer.
