3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a deep amber/copper color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma is caramel malt, grass with a lightly toasted bread note. The flavor was lightly toasted bread that had been soaked in a caramel sauce, mild herbal notes like a green tea and grass. Nothing really stood out and I would list this as worth trying once.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a transparent copper with off-white lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and toasted malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

On tap: Very hoppy aroma. Pours a dark amber with a nice off-white head. Great lacing. Great grapefruit hoppy flavor with some nuttiness and roastiness. Much hoppier than I would expect in a brown ale. Moderate hop aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This poured a nice medium brown color with an off white head. Aroma was light brown sugar, nuts, caramel, and toasted malts. Flavor was very nice simple and smooth, the pinnacle of a brown ale, medium toasted malt characters, some roasted nuts, and caramel sweetness. Very well done.
