Pours a soft amber that sits kind of tawny brown in the glass, one finger of off-white head. Looks like an insipid amber ale. Smells like Yoo-Hoo and dusty caramel. Some nutty/biscuity notes show as well and a stock/aged character. Dusty/musty flavor with some nutty and bready notes. Tastes stale-ish and not too hot. Light bodied and weak sauce.

From a bottle, nice brown pour, no sediment. Smells perhaps like a sweeter darker beer. Decent co2 on the uptake and yes it does have a sweeter toffee and caramel feel to it. Almost cloying but not quite. Starts out sweeter then finishes with a nearly typical porter or milder brown ale effect.

Winter Beer Fest, Philly: Pours light brown with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel, nuts and vanilla (seems like I’m the only one saying this... am I crazy?). Taste is on the sweet and low hop side of the Brown Ale world. Easy drinking. Not bad. It ain’t really my thing though.

Poured from bottle into Tulip glass a UPS brown, clear with little head and little lace. Aroma was nutty, toffee, malt, cereal. Low carbanation and medium body. Taste was nutty, full of toffee, malt, a little wood. It’s a nice beer to transition into fall. Enjoyed.
