Pours brown with a medium off white head which quickly settled to a film. Aroma is caramel, vanilla and some roast undertones. Taste is sweet with some tartness. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Very drinkable, the tartness makes this brown interesting plus its very sessionable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Notes of butterscotch, Brazilian pinenuts, granulated brown sugar, and just a flutter of smoked gouda that tantalizes the nostrils upon First Sniff. A buttery smooth mouthfeel - not aggressive, yet far from bashful - that lingers on the tongue like a fine double malted scotch. Tastes like sanka. Finishes clean - really, really clean and hopeful. This is a beer that knows what it wants and isn’t afraid to demand excellence.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a medium brownish-amber color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head fades super-fast leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of a toffee smell mixed with some caramel and a somewhat nutty aroma. A little bit of a grainy and bready smell and some almost honey roasted nut smells are there giving the brew a somewhat honey nut Cheerio like smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a lighter level of toffee and caramel sweetness with a decent amount of a lightly toasted bready taste. As the taste advances the sweetness fades up to the middle of the taste as more light roasted flavors and some graininess and nut come to the tongue. More toward the end the sweetness comes back in the form of a toffee and caramel flavor once again. A light earthy hop brings a dimension of slight bitterness to the brew at the end, and with a good increase in the nut, ends up leaving a rather nutty and lightly toasted flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is medium in thickness and carbonation, which overall suit the mix of nut, light roast, and toffee/caramel rather well for this 5 % abv. brew.
Overall – A rather decent and much drier then anticipated nut brown ale. Fairly nice.

Pours a dark reddish brown, not much in the way of head or lacing. Malts, caramel, brown sugar on the nose. Hints of sweet citrus, banana, molasses. A very drinkable brown ale, though I’ve had better.

12 oz bottle. I liked the toffee flavor which goes well with a brown. Not too sweet which is a plus.
