Pours a nice brown color. Nice head that laces the glass. The flavor is nice and malty, caramel, a hint of grain. Would prefer a little more body. Nice beer.

Brown-amber color with small tan ring. Aroma is dry, earthy, roasted malts. Taste is very earthy and dry, nearly at bit chalky. Dry finish. Different from what I had expected.

Tap at Cooper’s on Cannery Row. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma seems roasty malt. Med body or so. Flavor is roasty malt, and a little nuttiness follows. Nice brown - appreciating the low nut level. Finishing towards dry, neither bitter nor sweet. Might be good with sushi.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours no head on a hazy brown colored body.
The aroma is mostly caramel with a little nutty.
The taste initially has a mild caramel sweetness, then a burst of lemon bitterness followed by lots of caramel sweet.
The texture is crisp.
It’s too far on the sweet end for me.

Nice roast/chocolate aroma, but there is a metallic off-flavor. Moderate level of carbonation with a nice full body. I’d like for there to be a more lingering grain character for a beer of this style.

Draft at the Brewery The ale poured a dark brown with a decent white head with lacing. The aroma was of nutty roasted malts. The medium body ale has average carbonation. This is nice brown ale. The finish had lingering roasted malt.
