Poured from a bottle it is a dark brown with a slight head. The aroma is malty and has a hint of pecans. The taste is of a strong root beer and it resonates on the palate. Mighty tadty

12 oz. can. It pours a pretty dark brown color with some dark orange at the edges and a disappearing khaki head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with some hints of bubblegum and mild notes of root beer. The flavor is more toasty with some nuttiness and pretty aggressive hop bitterness. Very simple and a little on the sweet side, but it does have a decent toasted, bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall tan head, rather soapy as well. Aroma of nuts, pecans, earth, malt, caramel and some walnuts in the mix as well - very nice and strong. Light-bodied; Strong nutty flavours of pecans, peanuts and light malt with a rather sweet and almost sour note showing some very subdued earthiness and a hint of grape flavour as well. Aftertaste is very much on the lighter side with the fruits coming out more than an earthiness and a little light sweetness coupled with some dry, oaky flavours is noticeable - interesting. Overall, a very odd brown ale that is very much on the light side of the spectrum with a lot of nuts and malt in the nose but almost nothing noticeable in the taste and finish - very light and airy throughout with not at all a cloying flavour. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Crystal City Wine Shop (12th Street) in Arlington, Virginia on 22-July-2014 for US$2,09 sampled a block away in Washington on 16-September-2014.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Reminds me of Newcastle Brown ale with just a bit more story behind this beer. Not as heavy as a traditional brown ale can be but still heavy in its own right. I won’t be buying this beer again primarily because I am not really into brown ales.
