2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours fairly red for a brown ale. This one misses the mark a little. Ok head and lacing. Faint hint of roast malt here but aroma and palate are very light here. Finishes with very light bitterness. Tap at Black Tomato.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Atomic Rooster.
Appearance: Pours an amber brown with a bit of tan head.
Aroma: Tobacco, malt, straw.
Flavours: Malt, tobacco, caramel, bit of hops.
Mouthfeel: Thin with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This one has this really odd tobacco aroma and flavour I usually only get with Spanish Riojas but it balances out with the malt to make this one an interesting Brown Ale. Not sure I would want a second one but it is definitely worth a try.
