2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Brown pour with an off white film for head. The aroma is sweet, with a bit of caramel and brown sugar. Pretty boring though. Light mouth feel, with a restrained malt character. Sweet with a cheap caramel malt flavor and a bit of a metallic hint. Kind of lacks character.

Definitely on the lighter, sweeter, more tea-like brown. Closer to Newcastle than say a Dogfish Indian Brown, but perhaps thatís not so surprisingly. Light caramel, brown sugar, sweet tea, malt. Okay.

Bottle. Pours a clear deep amber with a small short lived white head that fades to a ring and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of light caramel and a hint of roasted malt. Taste is the same as aroma with the roasted malt being a little more pronounced. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. Good.

Serious session beer. Not complex at all, just crisp and enjoyable. Thin palate, a little watery on the end.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle courtesy of my father-in-law. Nice fresh hoppy, grassy nose with a bit of caramel. Medium brown clear with thin off-white head. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Dry nutty character from start to finish. Light caramel with a bit of acidity. Light dry bitter finish with som nuttiness. OK session but Iíve had better browns.

Smells of very sweet caramel malts. Taste is not as dark and caramely as the smell leads you to expect. A nice brown ale, but nothing special

Yummy, works well as a pure session beer. The beer has medium malts and hops a slight caramel toasty quality. good for a round.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2009 The aroma is like a brown but weaker, it has caramel, toasted malt, dust, caramel, and chocolate. The appearance is light brown with an average head at best. The palate is thin. Overall itís disappointing and could qualify as a brown light.
