on tap @ North Country / Rolling Rock PA --- Nearly clear amber brown, small beige head that disappears, a few lace blobs. Taste is malt and a little hazelnut that brings medium fizz on the swallow, then light bittering to finish. A little heavy for my taste, but also full-bodied and balanced.

Pours a light brown iced tea color with a thin white ring. Not much aroma. Very thin and light with not much nut flavor. Not that great nor enjoyable.

Had 13 beer flight on a beautiful custom wood flight. Beers overall were solid and the service was great. Nothing extraordinary overall with flight, but most palatable and easy to drink. A few unique beers with honey and lavender. Individual beers as follows:
Worth your weight in gold: Lager taste, slight malty feel, plenty of flavor for a yellow clear beer. Nice lager.
Slippery rock Dew: Thick in the mouth, honey flavor readily present, fresh and refreshing
Station 33:Crisp, caramel malts, simple but enjoyable
Mcleods Eva: Smooth, sweet at the end. Light and watery for a malty beer. Less overwhelming, good or bad, then many in the same style
Squirel Nut Brown: Good rendition for the style
Amber waves of grain: Can really taste the caramel malts. Drinkable.
Simcoe Pale Ale: Smells like a christmas treee. Would be nice with a big dinner to cleanse the pallate between bites.
Paleo IPA: average IPA
Frias Porter: Good flavor bute falls a little short. Root beer flavor at the end
Stonehouse stout: On nitro. Guiness feel in the mouth but a bit more boring.
Fruit bowl: neat idea, apricot flavor this go around, great summer beer
Lavender Abbey: Strong aroma and flavor. Lavender hits you in the face. Polarizing experience.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer poured great with a nice brown color that passes through very little light, has a nice whitish brown hue to it, and leaves some lacing on the glass. The beer smells great with a well balanced blend of dark malts, mild hoppiness, caramel, and hazelnut. The beer tastes decent as it is very smooth, well blended nutty and malty flavors and balances nicely. The mouthfeel is great as the beer is well carbonated, medium boided, and leaves you with a mild sweet nutty taste. Overall, a decent nut brown ale, different with the hazelnut tastes and isn’t overpowering at all.

Poured on draft at the source. Pours a dark brown with a thin, beige head of foam. Aroma is smoky and nutty. Sweet and roasty toasty. Nice combination. Pretty nice take on a nut brown.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a standard brown ale with a smooth slightly roasty flavour, no bitterness. A slight nutty aroma. A slightly thin mouthfeel but a steady drink.
This would be a great session beer, or a good compliment to food.

Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a dark red-brown color with a khaki head. The aroma was dry and roasty with hints of floral and fruity hops. The flavor was dry, roasty and bitter with touches of fruit, wood and nut. The finish was long with roasty fruit and wood. Solid.
