4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer rocks! A great brown ale! Sparkling clear, brand-spanking-new-penny copper ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Excellent retention with cumulus lacework. Nutty, smoky, chocolatey aroma and flavor. Perfectly balanced. Light-bodied with a very creamy mouthfeel and pillow-soft carbonation. Short, lightly bitter finish. World class beer!

A decent brown, although a little watery and I missed the "smooth balanced hop finish". Otherwise- nice ruddish brown color, tasty oaky malt.

This red muddy brown ale had a loose but lingering head. The aroma was that of a nice smooth nut brown ale, and the taste didn’t disappoint. Woody and complex, worth sinking your teeth into.
