3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured light amber in color with a thick white head. Aroma of spicy, earthy hops with a touch of bready malt. A decent beer but unbalanced for the style in my opinion. Needs more "brown ale" characteristics.

Draught at Roberta’s. Hoppy and caramel. Was dark, so didn’t see a brown, but felt like some dark fruit to it. Decent.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Pacific Standard. Deep amber pour. The nose is spicy and malty. Lots of crusty bread and some fairly pronounced herbal hop notes. A bit of yeasty spice along with a lingering hoppiness. It’s a bit disjointed and doesn’t really come together for me. A bit sticky and sweet.
