3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear see through orangey/redish/brown, with a paper thin lacey head. Aroma is sweet, sour, coffee, and nutty maltyness. The body is medium/thin but perfect for this beer, not too thick but at the same time not too thin. I get some nutty roast malt in the flavor not to be out done by some floral hops that stand up pretty nicely. The beer kind of grew on me. There is a little metalic flavor that i did not care for, but all in all not bad. I kind of reminded me of something between a English Pale Ale, an ESB, and a Brown Ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It poured a decent dark brown/ruby color that appeared clear. The head was off white and was of rather good size. The head was a bit soapy and didn’t have the longest retention I had ever see, but the lacing was ok. The aroma was a rather nice and sweet smelling caramel and toffee. A tad bit toasty. Smells rather rich with small chocolate notes creeping in. The malt became more and more robust as it warmed. The taste was caramel with bits of chocolate and toffee. Again, a bit of toastiness. Some bitterness is noticeable also. Rather rich. The taste seemed to be balanced a bit better than the aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Rather creamy. Smooth and dry. Does a pretty good job of leaving flavor on the palate. The mouthfeel was even a tad chewy. I thought this brew was pretty good really. Pretty solid in all aspects. Rather drikable with some complexity. Would be nice on a cool night. If someone had this available, I would have no problem drinking it again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy, mahogany with lots of suspended particles and about 1’’ of mocha colored head. Aroma is sweet and nutty with a hint of chocolate. Taste follows the nose with a mild bitterness towards the end and a somewhat dry finish. Very smooth and easy to drink.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with a thin head. Aroma consists of caramel, bread, roasty, citrus, nuts, and leather. Taste is slightly sweet with medium bitterness while it maintains a fairly light body for how flavorful it is.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one smells a little spunky, caramel-y and malty. It tastes like a light ale with a lot of malt, a touch of nuts, and a hint of coffee for a tiny bitter after taste.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle- poured out a nice translucent walnut with a moderate ivory head. Aroma was malt with a honey under-tone. Taste was in line with other nut browns, malt with just the right amount of hops. Pretty good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. Bottle - Pours a dark brown with no head, no lacing. Nose is dark malt, nuts, sweetness, and a faint grassy hop presence. Taste is semi-sweet, nutty maltiness with a tiny bit of hop bitterness on the end. Mouthfeel is medium, smooth, regular carbonation, and a decently long finish. This is actually better than I expected - decent, drinkable, but nothing spectacular.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark amber that is crystal clear. Flowers dominate the aroma with some sweet malt underneath. Flavor has roasty and sweet malt but not overwhelming. The sweetness is nicely balanced by non-descript hops. Not a bad brown ale but lacks personality that would make it unique.
