3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at the source. The beer is chestnut brown with a thin, light beige collar. The aroma offers some sweet, fruity notes atop a light malt bill. The flavor is decent, albeit a bit to sweet. A bit more bread and malt character would serve this beer well. Decent beer, and easy enough to get through a pint, but this could stand a few improvements.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub, served in a nonic pint glass. Pours a mostly clear brown with amber highlights and a tiny beige head. The aroma took quite a while to emerge, and when it did there were notes of nuts, caramel, brown sugar, and toast. The flavor follows mostly the same lines, with caramel malts, toast, nuts, brown sugar, cola, and vanilla. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, nutty mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Just a wee bit on the sweet side but otherwise a nice brown ale.

Sampled on draft at the brewpub - Pours reddish brown with a dense tan head. The aroma has very toasted malt with lots of nuttiness. It has a medium smooth velvety body with semi-sharp carbonation. The taste has the malt and nuttiness of the aroma with a bit more sweetness that seems like honey. The finish has some spicy hops and a bit of a roasted taste. Nice brown ale.
