I thought this was perfectly legit. It had a bright toffee and caramel flavor at the start and had a rather rich consistency (albeit within the range expected of a brown ale), reflecting its sweetness. Not long-lasting in the finish, but still fine. At Sloopy’s in Grand Lake.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light aroma of caramel and toffee malt as well as notes of honey and nuts. Pours medium brown with a thin tan head and no lacing. Caramel and toffee malt with sweet honey and a hint of nuttiness. Finishes smooth with the honey sweetness lingering on the palate. Pretty good brown but is a little watery at the end.

A bland and unassuming brown ale. A little too much honey for my tastes. Medium body and a watery palate.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s into my Funkwerks glass. Deep, dark brown with almost no head. Aroma and flavor of toasted malts, nuts, toffee, caramel, earth and brown sugar. Mild sweetness and light bitterness. Light to medium body with a soft, thin feel.

Bottle, brought back for me by Grippitis. Thanks buddy! Deep copper amber, nutty caramel malt profile, husky aroma, but thinner on the palate than the aroma would suggest. Simple but pleasing.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear copper with reasonable light-tan head. Caramel, nutty aromas but the taste is slightly less so and the palate is disappointingly thin. Clean finish.
