2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a slightly dark amber with medium off-white head. Aroma mild of malt, slight citrus and floral hops, and grass. Flavor matches well, but has a nutty dryness I get from a lot of nut brown ales. This was described to me as a "mild IPA". It’s definitely a bit different.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a brownish-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts and slight hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, toasted nuts and mild hops. The finish is short and malty. Average overall.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap: Pours an amber/brown color, nearly opaue, with a somewhat lasting off white head. Aromas are very faint, and consists mostly of smoke and coffee touches. Flavor mimicks the nose mostly, with smoke and roasted malts being the only strong notes. This beer seemed overly watery, and finished the same way.
