2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft at the brewpub, 3/11/06: Yep itís brown. Small, almost sticky head. Almost no aroma and almost no flavor. Itís clean and smooth and any mere mortal, casual beer drinker could pound these. Itís almost good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub, Spring í06. Clear Orange brown with a two finger yellow beige head. Aroma of chocolate and toasted malts, grain, and some leather. Aroma adds some brown sugar, otherwise the same as the aroma. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. This is probably one of their better offerings consistently on tap.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big thanks goes out to SledgeJr for treating me to this (and one more) round! Poured a usual brown color for such an ale, nice thin head, although lacing was only average to weak. The aroma was sweet light chocolate and nuts. The flavor was malty sweet chocolate and nuts. Mouthfeel was moderate to thin for the style, but the sweetness kept it from feeling too light. A very simple take on the style, a little sweet, yet enjoyable. Much thanks to Todd!!!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Had this on opening day. Pours a light amber "brown" ala Newcastle. Decent head retention. Good lacing to the glass. Aroma is good with a slight nutty character. Carbonation provides a respectable tongue tingle. Flavor is smooth and malty making this an easy to drink beer. has a detectable bitterness. Not as good as the pale ale served here, but the second best currently being poured. A solid beer.
