3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Founders Taproom on 8/12/11. Poured a darkish brown. Off white head. Aroma was very mild, just a bit of roasted nuts. Flavor also muted. Some caramel and maltiness. This one was just ok for me. Very drinkable, but not very memorable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Founders brewery. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of raosted malt, nuts, malt and more nuts but in a mild way. Taste of roasted malt, nuts, chestnut, malt and a peppery finish. Not bad, considering the word mild is in its title.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at founders. i think this is the base brown (or uses the same base) for the misty, cashew, maple, and other brown variations they put out seasonally/yearly. pours translucent brown with white head. light hops accompany the slightly toasted oat profile. nothing too substantial here, just a solid quaff brown ale.
