2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can shared that poured an unfiltered brown color with big tan head. There is a mild sourness in the nose don’t know if it’s suppose to be there or not. An almost tea scent and hay. The flavor was wretched tinny/coiny caramel sweet and sour disgusting. Could be a bad can but don’t think so.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz can. From a grocery store in Honolulu, HI.
Dark brown color with a small tan head.
Sweet caramel and darkish malt in aroma but also a hint of sourness lurking there.
The flavor is sweet dark malt, mild sourness and mild hops. Boring. Brown ale as it’s... not best.
