Draft at J. Alexanders in Boca Raton, FL. Pint glass. (They pour in frozen mugs so I caught them and asked for a regular glass.) Nice brown clean look with white head. Little lace. Aroma was mild with caramel, makes and vanilla. Taste was very lighter in flavor than I was expecting. Hints of caramel and vanilla. It had a kind of cola taste to it also. Yeasty with a smooth mouth feel.

Cigar City Smokes NYC at Rattle N Hum. Big carmel aroma. A brown ale, smooth, bulked up by the carmel. The mate seems like a little tabacco was added. Less sweet than it could be, and that’s a good thing.
