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.

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.

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. There’s a bit of tartness in the finish that wasn’t evident at the brewery, but is in the can. That’s disappointing. Mild malts are about it, a basic brown.
