3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This may just be me, but I think this brew is terribly underscored. As a B’ham native it has always been my favorite GPBC product. Easy to find around the local area and a decent price. However, if you like your ales on the citrus or hoppy side, this beer is probably not for you. Nonetheless, give it a try. It is certainly unique for a brown ale.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly dark brown and leaves the same colored body with a slim one finger white foamy head that dies within about a minute, some nice foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass in a clingy sort of fashion; the aroma is nutty, malty, slight caramel all combined nicely and coming forth strong and sweet; the flavoring is mainly nutty and sweet; slightly nutty/caramel malty aftertaste and a dry sort of nutty finish; its fairly easy on the palate for a Brown Ale but still packs a slightly heaviness to sit just right on a Winter’s night; overall, definitely would trade for this again

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
FROM NOTES: August 9, ’23
Poured from a 12 ounce can into a shaker pint glass.
A: Chocolate malt, a bit of coffee, nutty malts, and a bit of peat as well.
A: Pours a dark, murky brown with a two-fingers off-white head that dissipates slowly leaving a slight lacing.
T: Malty, nutty, bready, much like the smell with hints of caramel and chocolate with a touch of hops at the finish. Nicely balanced.
P: Carbonation over-load! But after the carbonation bomb settles down, is quite smooth, almost creamy
O: The nose is very promising, but the taste is slightly disappointing. The sweetness went away and it was just an average brown.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pretty solid brown - had a very nice brown pour w/ a big tan head that leaves substantial lacing. Aroma is faint w/ a little bit of malt standing out. Taste is light malt upfront followed by a fair amount of hop bitterness. A nice brown!
