2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent, if unexceptional, brown ale. Smooth with caramel and nutty flavors. Hint of raisin. A little sweet for my taste, though true to style with assertive flavors. Not the best from Midnight Sun, but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brown with a big tan head. Aroma malty and toasty, some toffee and fruit. Taste of burnt toast, and something hearty.. gravy maybe? Sounds gross but is actually good. Malty but not sweet. Can definitely see this going with shepherd’s pie. Quite nice.

"i like this brewer, but this one really doesn’t do much to seperate itself. fizzy light texture and body, with carmel malt, slight nuttiness and a splash of hops in the flavor and aroma. not bad, but not a standout."
