Pours a clear brown, with the weak nose. There is a hint of caramel and oats. The flavor is sweet and malty, but with relatively little body.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft Amber Ale with sweet bready aroma,The malt and hops litterly cancel each other out so there is not much character at all.The nutty roasty caramel notes are so very subtle add the hops spiciness its a bit conteractive and quite bland on the tongue.Medium to thin body and medium carbonation its drinkable enough but @ $4.15 a glass I guess I want a little more then this beer is delivering.

The bottle poured clear iced tea color with slight ruby tones and half an inch of tan foam. Aroma mostly of caramelized malts and slight toasty notes of chocolate. The flavor is a bit sweet and sour with mild toasty bitterness and a fairly light body. One of the better browns I’ve had.

Draft. Pours a dark amber with a brown hue. Dense creamy off-white head. Some lacing. Aroma of toffee and biscuit malt. Taste of light caramel and burnt toast. Not much hop character. Finish is too balanced as nothing really stands out.

12 oz. bottle--Poured a faint brown and thin body with a tiny off-white head. Nose of stale malts and caramel. This beer plays more like a homebrew than anything else. Not very good.
