3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours medium brown with a small white head. Nose is sugary, with some hop notes. Taste is slightly roasty malts, with a slight hop profile. A bit sharp but goes down smoothly. Body is light-to-medium and is well carbonated. Not a bad beer for a style that’s never been one of my favorites.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received in trade from GPHarris, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a light shade of brown, or a dark shade of copper with a decent ivory head that dissipates to a cap and leaves spotty lace. Smells of toffee and brown sugar, a hint of chocolate and a touch of butterscotch. Very clean sweet malty aroma with a hint of earthy hops deep underneath. Taste is toffee brown sugar malts with a hint of chocolate and caramel. Sweet and malty. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, moderate level of carbonation, medium body. This is a nice little session ale. There’s enough flavor here to keep it interesting and light enough to have a couple.

Sample at a tasting at IlliniSmitty’s house. Another disappointment from Alabama. I really wanted to enjoy this, but I could hardly finish my sample glass. Basically dirty water. And I loved their special stuff that was brought to the East Nashville Beer Festival. I guess I’ll stay away from their main offerings.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, courtesy of my man Gilly...thanks. Pours a clear brown with minimal head. Smells of coffee, with a surprising little hop note in the background. Nice and sweet in the taste, goes down very easy. A good, drinkable brown.
