Not a bad brown ale. It pours a very dark brown but has almost no carbonation, the head retention is almost non-existant. The beer does does have a nice dry bitter finish following the malty sweetness though.

Can shared that poured an unfiltered brown color with big tan head. There is a mild sourness in the nose donít know if itís 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 donít 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 itís... not best.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small to average light brown head; beer brown in color.
Aromas primarily malt, with molasses, caramel and nutty aromas. Hop aromas very light.
Medium body; medium sweetness; moderate bitterness; average length finish.
Overall a mild, fairly simple brown ale. Pretty much all malt with very little hop presence.

Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, metallic.
Infected to hell and back. Utterly undrinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light brown colour. Aroma is mild. Taste has a caramel note first, maybe a touch of toastiness. Thereís a bit of tartness in the finish that wasnít evident at the brewery, but is in the can. Thatís disappointing. Mild malts are about it, a basic brown.
