3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ brewpub. Somewhat translucent brown appearance. Fairly string nutty characters on top of brown maltiness in the nose. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel with below average carbonation. Quite nutty brown malty flavor that’s very smooth and very easy drinking. One of this place’s best beers.

I was excited by this beer since I love brown ales. I am disappointed. The flavor is good, but the beer is very thin and watery. Needs more body. Kick this up another notch and it could be great.

roasty aroma, dark brown color, minimal head, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, full body, creamy, average carbonation, nice balanced roasty finish with a slight hop bite. I enjoyed the nice balance of this brown ale, very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at GABF as I was pouring for Bull & Bush. Pours a fairly typical darker brown color with a well-formed off-white head and good lacing. The aroma is nutty and chocolatey, not too intense but nice. The flavor is heavy on chocolate malts, lending a bit of a Hershey bar flavor to it, with caramel and nutty notes in there too. Medium-bodied with average carbonation and a pretty smooth mouthfeel. Solid example of the style overall from the surprisingly good Bull & Bush.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a brown color with a thin white head. This might be one of the better brown ales that I have ever had. It is rich, chocolatey and full of flavor. I would drink this beer regularly and I don’t even like the style. This is full of lots of complex flavors. Mildly roasted with an unexpected spiciness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly dark and robust brown ale, with a lot of chocolate and hazelnut character to it, as well as a fair amount of roasted malt flavor, and some buttery qualities on the back end - moderate bitterness and some leafy character in the finish - a decent brown.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Falling Rock. Clear copper brown with a small beige head, fading to a thick film. Buttery toffee up front with some light toasted malts behind. Flavor is a little roastier and has less buttery notes, though still faintly present. Finishes semi-dry, lightly roasty, and nutty. Bitterness was @ a 2. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. OK brown.

Crushed with Jakebra at Falling Rock. Average brown. Some substance but not much to it. A very drinkable brown just not that exciting.
