3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a growler purchased at Whole Foods Devon. Pours a moderate light, clear brown. Decent frothy white head. Aroma of wood chips and sweet tea. Mouthfeel is light to moderate with a nice amount of carb. Not creamy, but not watery either. Taste is slight malt, good amount of coffee but without the bitterness. I was actually surprised how much coffee flavor was in this. Little to no hops except for some bitterness. Easy to drink with some good flavor. I liked this one more than the numbers account for. Just a very good beer that can be enjoyed any time.

Dark brown-amber hazy body, medium sized off-white head, soapy lacing. Earth, brown bred, a hint of nuttyness and toffee. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, light sweetness. It’s a brown ale.

Growler shared by nimbleprop. Thanks!
Hazy mahogany body with a small tan head. Aromas of robust malt, dank earth, brown bread. A touch of bitterness in the finish. Pine notes. Decent.

Tap at Dandelion. Hazy brown with off white head. Toasty caramel nose. Hippy more than malty, more like a bigger pale with the nose of a brown.

Growler. Pours golden brown with nice fluffy head. Nose is a bit roasty, nutty, bread. Taste is crusty dark bread, nutty, a bit of roast, rye, some bitterness, dryness, and spicy rye on the finish. Would definitely go with food, very bready, dry for the style. Tasty brown ale.

Pours a clear amber with a medium white head. Aroma has nutty, caramely notes with some dry leaves. Flavor follows suit and adds some earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and lively with a dry and earthy / bitter finish that is more bitter than expected but welcome.

Draft at the brewery. Light Coffee, caramel, malt, peanut, raisin, fig. An interesting complex brown ale that pairs we'll with heavy food. I've had this before with pizza and wings.

The Sampler, tap: Pours light brown with an off-white head. Aroma is dark fruits, nuts, caramel, and a hint of earthiness. I don’t know if it was the summer temperature or what, but I didn’t entirely dig this beer. Everything seems to have been done correctly, but it didn’t really come together for me. Somewhat sweet, lightly bitter, plenty of caramel.
