Pretty standard/weak example of the style. Light roasted malts and a hint of hops are about all that’s going on here. Does nothing wrong, but does nothing well."

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light brown-amber with a tan head and decent lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, caramel, nuts, and some light toffee. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some light hops. Has a medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a slightly bitter, medium-short finish. Overall, a decent, easy drinking english style brown ale.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light brown in color with a khaki head. Very buttery aroma. Some grass, a bit of straw, and water. Sweet toast and toffee malts. Light roast, too. The flavor has some decent malt flavor and sweetness of toffee, toast, and roast. It’s also very heavy on the butter, grass, and water notes, too, though.

Tap @ brewpub. Brown pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is light roast and sweet malt. Taste is creamy nuts and roast with sweetness. Airy mouthfeel. Light hop bitterness. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown pour, off-white/tannish head. Chocolate, sweetness, light nuts, biscuit, and some grassy hops. This is a 7% abv and is fairly strong for a brown, decent, but not my thing.

[Draft @ brewpub] Clear reddish amber hue, malty nutty aroma. Toasted malt floavor, sweet chocolaty blend, mild nutty dryness in finish. Easy drinking palate, tasty brown.
