Bottle. A- Malty, slightly nutty, subtle caramel. A- Dark mahogany color, clear liquid, beige head. T- Malty, caramel, slightly nutty, toasty, toffee. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish. O- It’s a Brown Ale. Brown Ales are never really anything exciting. This pretty much fits the mold. Fairly bland and lots of malts.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Serving: Can from State Line Liquors. It pours a medium brown with a decent light tan head. The nose is straight foward. There is a good bit of roasted nuts and a little earthy note. The flavor is text book nut brown with a light roast, good bit of nuttiness, a little earthy bitterness. Overall very drinkable and a good session brew.
