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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at home. Probably something wrong with my bottle, the beer is basically still, zero head and zero carbonation despite a vigorous pour. Smells and tastes okay-ish for this style, though a bit too hoppy. A bit of an "old hop tea" vibe. Not a problem per se, it’s just that I wanted something more traditional/malty/caramelly.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on-tap with an extraordinary domed head. It settles very slowly, leaving chunky ring lace after each sip. The liquid is dark amber (or light brown) and is crystal clear.
Hoppy first, but then I note some crystal malt with a bit of sweetness and nuttiness.
This is a hoppy brown ale. It starts off with a nice, almost chocolately, darker malt flavor. There’s a touch of brewer’s yeast in the background. The bittering hop pops out in the swallow but it fades in the aftertaste, leaving a biscuity finish. Rich body, particulary for the style.
