3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours transparent brown with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, light chocolate and roasted notes from the malts, and light floral hops. Flavor the same, with the malts blending well like a beer of this style should. Average texture. A pretty good beer for the style.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2013 A nice, simple brown ale. A tad watery. Nutty but doesnít possess the usual smoothness to match. Drinkable.

Ok. Mild hops aroma with some malt. Pours brown with good lacing. Slightly sour aftertaste with a bit of bitterness. Average carbonation, average consistency. Bottle from Stop and Go.

On tap, pretty dark pour with this head. Iím so used to nut brown ale aftertaste that this beer really surprised me. Out has a sweet caramel flavor that I think I secretly wanted in a brown ale. I wish it had a better aroma, it would have recieved a higher total score. One of the better browns Iíve had. Easy to drink.

On tap. Pours with a small head, dissipates fairly quickly but maintains nice lacing. Smooth mouthfeel with nice level of carbonation - enough, but not too much. Lightly sweet and malty, but not overpowering. Roasty, but stops short of a porter or stout. A simple brown, but a good one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A finger of light tan head on a fairly clear brown colored body.
The aroma is chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. It smells like a porter.
The taste is mild bitterness, roasted malt, chocolate sweetness and finishes on a bitter note. A good profile.
The texture is crisp with a little cream. The carbonation is on the higher, fizzy side.
Overall a good brown ale.
