Picked up a 6 pack at the local liquor store after the Redskins lost to the Lions, bullshit. Pours a dark chocolate color with a thin tan head. Chocolate and dark caramel for taste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark pour with a decent mouthfeel. Very mild aroma of chocolate malt, and heavy cereal. Taste adds heavier chocolate character and even more grain. Pleasant, but not inviting. Not terrible.

pours a medium brown with a good tan head. This beer is sweet and full of malts, there is a light bitter rye flavor. There is a nice caramel flavor also.

Deep caramel color, off-white head. Aromas of roasted barley, malt, and prominent weedy hops. Warms without being too heavy. Pretty good, simple, well-balanced.

12oz. Pours a deep deep copper with a thin white head. Really bready nose melded with chocolate malt. Taste if caramel and chocolate malt. Rye comes through in the dark bready flavor.For the price point of this sixer Iíd say its a pretty drinkable brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mostly clear brown/dark copper/dark amber in color. White head with not much size, retention or lacing. Some burnt orange and yellow highlights around the bottom and sides. The aroma reminded me of some burnt toast and earthy malts. A touch of caramel in the nose also. The taste provides the burnt toast with some roasted chestnut type flavors. Some earthy malt. Not a whole lot of bitterness present. Not picking up the caramel as much in the flavor. Medium mouthfeel. Motly crisp, but not leaving much on the palate. Rather smooth also. Dry. This beer is alright. Easily drinkable. I like the burnt toast flavor ok. I could have a few of these no problem. This could be good in the Fall as well as the Winter.

Pours amber with a nice head that gives way to solid lacing. Aroma is similar to flavor - a very good toffee flavor with only a hint of bitterness. I just wish this mild ale was classified correctly so I could get credit on ratebeer.
