Aroma is light and malty, with a sweet hint. Appearance is dark and slightly red around the edges. Taste is light with some malt, a little overly sweet, but very subdued. Palate is nit that thick despite the sweetness, not unpleasant.

Tap to pint glass. Slightly hazy brown pour with a thick creamy head. Aroma of toasted nuts, caramel, malt, a little fruity hops. Flavor is reminiscent of toffee peanuts. Very light hops bitterness on the finish. Pretty thin. Highly sessionable.

From notes. On tap at cigar city. This brew poured a deep mahogany brown with red hues where the light passed through, very little head on this mostly due to the pour, what did remain was on the yellow side of off-white. The nose on this one was pretty roasty, notes of caramel, chocolate, and a bit of earthiness. Up front I get those sweet malty flavors, chocolate and a little fruit I can’t put my finger on. There are some earthy notes followed up by a bit of grassy hop. The body is fairly light and the carbonation sits on the high side making this brew very drinkable. Overall a nice drinkable beer, but nothing to wright home about.

Roasted malts, tobacco and toffee. Pronounced malt body but refreshing. Mildly hoppy and bitter too.

Not a very exciting brew. It has some subtle oregat like qualities in the nose, but its actual taste and finish I find to be thin. Understandably it is a mild ale, but its mildness didn’t leave too much to remember it by.
