Can in some BBQ joint in East Nashville. Bread and caramel nose. Sip adds sweet malts. Grassy aftertaste. This is going to be rough. Went for the Alabama tick and should have thought better of it.

12oz can from Ed5388, thanks bro-dawg-brah. Poured a lightly hazed dark chocolate brown body, with a smaller creamy beige head. Aroma is sort of meh, notes of sour milk, wet nuts, light chocolate, pencils. Medium body, sort of harsh, medium to stronger carbonation. Flavor is a bit better than the aroma, notes of older dark breads, nuts, oats, dry milk, bark.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from can into Geordie Schooner glass, thanks Mike! Opaque reddish brown colour with tan foam, lasting with lace. Malty sweet with noticeable hoppy bitter balance, some English-style earthiness, toast, hint of raisins, plums, cherries, cacao nibs. A little thin, cidery, metallic, but not too bad. Finishes a bit too sweet for me too, but it’s pretty good nonetheless. More complex than Newcastle by far, easy-drinking, good not great.
