3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Yabo’s Tacos. Pours brown with some amber around the edges and a medium beige head that dissipates quickly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and a bit of chocolate. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, roasted nuts and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short chocolate malt aftertaste. Average overall.

Average brown. Slightly sweet for my tastes. The caramel, toffee, and brown sugar were a bit too much. Medium body with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium clear brown with a nice size beige head. Nice malty aroma of caramel and nuts. Medium mouthfeel with a an excellent hop balance without over doing it. Just the way I like American Brown Ales. The finish leaves me wanting more.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Up in WI last week to visit family and my brother had a mixed 12 pack from these guys. This was the first of them I’ve tried. 12oz bottle, poured into a tall pilsner glass as that was all that was available at the time. Pours a clear dark brown. Thick 2-finger head atop. Nose was sweet with dark malts, grains, caramel candy. Semisweet toffee, breads, mild finish. Mild bitterness present, as this is sweet as it’s meant to be. This is a good beer and it really hits the spot. This is a simple style that I don’t visit enough. I like it.

This is a pretty thick brown ale with a fairly heavy coffee element to it. Just heavier than it should be or what I wanted anyway.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Sweet caramel malt and light molasses aroma. Clear chestnut with a small beige head, some spotty lacing. Nutty, roasty caramel malt flavor with a very slight bitterness in the finish. Light, crisp body, tingly carbonation. Everything about this was a little on the light side, but sometimes I prefer a lighter brown ale. Today was a hot day, and this was exactly what I wanted.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle. Way-too large spongy foam atop a clear mahogany body. Earthy-spiced molasses and dry grass in the aroma. Taste is watered down cola, dry grass, and spicy molasses. Near-medium body is smooth with low carbonation (plus) and to the sweet side (minus).
