3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nutty aroma, chocolate and almonds prominent. Sweet, malty, a roast nut taste, a little watery and light, but drinkable. Not a lot of complexity; one-dimensional.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 7/6/12
Aroma: The nose is roasted malts mostly, with light nutty notes, and a little earth
Appearance: It pours a clear reddish-brown with some light lace from the small beige head
Flavor: The flavor is malty and roasty, thought it is not super sweet or bitter
Palate: The feel is sticky and somewhat smooth, to along with the medium body
I thought it was a solid brown for sure. It hits all the marks for the style without being anything crazy or anything special. This is just a solid brew.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Maui brewing; poured a nice medium brown. Somewhat hoppy of an aroma. Overall it was OK, some body but the hops seemed unbalanced. Compared to a few of the others I tried in the sampler, it was decent ..

Brown color... Very malty, not very balanced with hops, but definitely an enjoyable brown ale... Very well done...
