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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can pour courtesy of Jeremy. Pours dark copper with explosive tan head. The aroma has mild notes of cherries and lemon. The taste seems improved over what the nose was delivering with some malts, roasted malts, a touch of nuttiness and some faint earthiness too. It ends with some acidity and a lemon/lime like quality.
