3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Nice fluffy tan head dragging laces on a clear deep amber beer. Intense and fresh notes of hops. Almost herbal. Flavor is slightly metallic with a light lactic thing playing on the tongue before going into a tongue twisting bitterness ending in a long dry finish. The carbonation is nicely mellow and the body is a bit thin without being watery. This is not a bad beer - it is just lacking many of the trademarks of a brown ale. If I were guessing I would call it an India Pale Ale.

Amber reddish brown beer with big blonde creamy head leaving lacing. Aroma has wood, bread, nuts, toffee and herbs. Flavor is bready malty, toffee sweet woody and a bit metallic when cold. Palate is thin and slick. Finishes with medium bitterness and aftertaste of maltiness. Quite basic Brown Ale, not too sweet, nothing special.
