2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours very red brown, clear with moderate carbonation and a small diminishing head. Aroma is malty, doughy, very light sweetness. Taste comes off quite bitter for a brown, too hoppy for the style. Nuttiness pokes through eventually. Very light sweetness. Mild roastiness. Finish is still bitter. Not my bag.

"Biscuity indeed. More refreshing than most browns, and very well balanced. Iíll buy this before just about any other brown...itís still a brown, so donít expect it to knock your socks off, but itís good, and highly drinkable."

Reviewed from notes.
Poured into a pint glass. The color is a moderate brown with a slight bit of murkiness. Good head and lacing. The nose brings forward some caramel, toffee, light nuts, and some mild fruit. The taste is bready with a bit of caramel and toffee. Good body and carbonation, this is a pretty nice brown ale and quite sessionable as well.

Good malty sweet aroma that continues into the flavor. It ends pretty bitter for a brown though. Good medium bodied mouthfeel and overall a pretty good beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice looking dark and dusky red liquid with a good off-white head and lots of lacing. Pleasant, natural aroma. The flavors work in concert, rather than separately. The aroma has a lot of malt with a great nutty background. Very good beer. Light and nutty flavor. Itís a good brown ale, if not a highly complex one. Every beer doesnít have to be a jigsaw puzzle and this beer works definitely accomplishes its goals. Feel is a bit thin, perhaps. Thereís nothing really wrong the feel given the abv. A very sessionable beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Warm brown in the glass, with red burst of color when held to the light. Murky, with cream colored head to lace. Nose is sweet malt and brown sugar and alcohol, like a barleywine. Taste is much lighter than nose. Definite sweetness, and very light malt. Fairly empty finish. Iíll have to let it warm, but as of now, the nose is better than the mouth.

Pours a deep brown with a nice off white head. The nose is biscuity, malt, and roasted grains. The taste is sweet malt, some low bitter notes, caramel, and nut. This is a good cheap brown ale.
