2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a mostly transparent, cedar bark brown color with a healthy layer of foamy off-white head. Aromas of toasted hazelnut shells and overbaked french bread crust. Light bodied, crisply carbonated mouthfeel. A bit husky, with some mildly astringent grain huskiness and burned bread crusts. A bit thin on the palate, with a nutty, toasty quality making up more of the deep malt character; could really use some more mid-malt depth for body and to smooth out the rough edges a bit. Otherwise it’s relatively clean and straightforward brown ale.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had this last week at the brewpub. This beer was definitely thin, but with a slight toasted malt flavor and nuttiness. Not real good, but drinkable.

A thin clear reddish brown beer with descent head. Toasty aroma with a hop background. Definite nutty flavor, with some hop character, good flavor but very thin mouthfeel. A very drinkable, flavorful brown for a warm spring afternoon.
