3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a sharp ruby copper with one finger of sandy tan head. Nose is nice, bready and biscuity with some fruity notes. Hazelnut and grain husk in the flavor. Lightly fruity with some diacetyl. There’s a light sharpness, palate kind of falls apart. Light and very dry with an almost sharp finish.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Poured a brown color with a moderate head to it. I found it nice and malty and not too bad for a brown ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. Near black with a hint of maroon shining through. Nice solid, thin tan head. Nose suggests Heath bar and a distant cigar. It tastes like toffee, leather, and a little toast, then rolls into a sweet stout-like finish...sweet coffee. I’d have never guessed they call this a brown ale, but I very much enjoyed it.

Deep amber with small white head. Super fruity nose. More fruit than than any other beer. Get some cherry, raspberry, light citrus, roast, cotton candy. Light roast with more fruit dominate the flavor. Strange, but I kind of liked it.
