COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A temptress that will seduce you, but leave your wallet feeling empty. Sweet Josie is crafted in the American Brown style. This is a complex beer balancing a nice hop bitterness with a generous amount of chocolate and aromatic malts.

Bottle from Village Wine and Spirits in Athens. Minimal roast malt nose, some chocolate. Medium dark brown, tan head. Light roast malt initial / a touch of hopping in mid / not much more. Thin body. Bland. Fairly boring. Drinkable.

Best out of the tap like most beers. This brown ale is up there with the best available. Light Chocolate and coffee flavors bring this beer to high level of deliciousness! You will not be disappointed with this beer!

Taster on tap at Barley’s during RBWG 2014. Wow, really interesting aroma. Hint of smoked, light fruitiness. Good lightly spicy hop, chocolate malt. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Dark red color. Nice thin khaki head. Some ropes and dots of lace. Moderate bitter taste, minimal sweet taste. Nice long aftertaste. Really nice stuff. Very enjoyable.

Poured from 12 ounce bottle bought at The Veggie Wagon, Carolina Beach, North Carolina, tasted on August 9, 201. Dark brown/ruby color, small tan head, nice sweet malty aroma, medium body, slick texture, good sweet taste held back somewhat by some chemical notes but still not bad at all.

Bottle. Aroma drops hints of coffee, malt, and chocolate. Pours reddish brown with a light tan head which fades to the rim with a little lace in the center. Taste starts to follow the aroma, but fades into something I can’t place—some kind of toasty bread or something. This beer smells and tastes like a full working bakery. Great all around.

medium brown color; chocolaty, coffee aroma; medium-bodied with a nice roasted malt flavor with coffee and chocolate notes; well balanced; almost bordering on a porter

Ordered on draft at SOL Southwest Grill great toasty taste with a great full bodied malt aftertaste.

I think this may be my new favorite of the Lonerider line, a well done brown ale. A transparent brown appearance, doesn’t look too heavy. aroma and flavor likewise is of pleasant intensity, featuring roasted malts, caramel and cocoa notes, maybe some coffee but not consistently present. Finishes again not completely clean but not sticky. Seems to consistently strike a golden mean. I will be sure to sample this again.

Bottle picked up at some point on trip to my folks (I think whole foods in greenville). Dark brown with off-white head. Aroma is roasty malt, nutty, cocoa. Taste is also nutty, but not overly sweet - which is good for me. Also caramel, citrus and chocolate bitter. Little burnt coffee vibe. I’m not a fan of typical sweet browns, but liked this.
