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.
