3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a bit disappointing for such a nice craft brewer. Just middle of the road.... Deep mahogany pour, good lace and not much of a slight tan head. Nuts/legumes to the aroma, if there was one. Similar soured nut flavor, some caramel with a tiny nut-bitter finish. Feels somewhat medium to the palate.... very average and mediocre. Much better than the average macro swill, that’s a given, but nothing spectacular here either.

Eh... I mean what can you say about this one, had it draught with a meal. Not terrible not wonderful, has some flavor but not that outstanding really. Absolutely no aroma what so ever, color was nice but probably fake. Better than Newcastle but that isn’t saying a whole lot. Average brown ale. Nothing more nothing less.

Pours brown (obviously) with thick tan head. Malty scent and flavor. Has a slight spicyness w/ a candyish sweet background. Creamy body with a nice dry mouthfeel in the finish. Decent brown ale.

Bottle. Creamy lightbrown good mostly lasting head. Brown colour. Week fruity aroma. Light acetic/bitter taste. Watery palate. I really dont think this is a very good brown ale. But it is still an ok beer.

Dark, almost red.Rich brew, full of taste, far beyond the brown ale from Newcastle. Brown bread, coffee, dark chocolate all rounded up by dry hops.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is of caramel, chocolate, roasted malts, sweet malts, and a hint of hops. Flavor starts off with the caramel and sweet malts and give way to the roasted malts and chocolate. The finish is a touch bitter with hops but not too much.
