UPDATED: JUN 30, 2012 Draft… Hazy dark brown ale with crimson highlights and a tight, taupe head. Good retention. The malty aroma offers caramel, tea biscuit and plenty of chocolate. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is a bit thin, but provides a nice measure of caramel, toffee and a touch of roasted cocoa. Crisp, snappy, fairly dry finish. Well-crafted low-alcohol brew.

Would love to hear the story behind the bame. Draft. Hazy brown, thick tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of caramel and subtle chocolate. Taste us bitter dilute cocoa. Not bad.

Did you ever think you would find a belgian ale with less alcohol than a bud light? Me neither. This beer is dark brown but EXTREMELY light, 3.3%abv! As such it has almost no body, it’s very thin. There are, however, some good roasty flavors on this and a light refreshing finish. I guess it would be a good session beer? I really don’t know what to make of things this light...

On tap 4 oz. sample at Maryland Craft Beer Festival 2012. A Belgian-style, low alcohol, dark red ale. Clear, light mahogany with creamy tan head and good lacing. Aroma of bread, roasted malt, spice and yeast. Taste of bread, roasted malt, spice and yeast. Mildly bitter with a slightly tart flavor. Medium/light body and carbonation. Nice mouthfeel. Aroma, flavor and palate are all quite remarkably for a 3.3% beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours brown with a medium tan head. Aroma has lightly roasted malts and a bit of caramel. Flavor is mildly bitter and chocolatey...slightly buttery...ringwood yeast. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is bitter and dry.

Had on cask at Churchkey. Pours (is that the right word for a cask ale?, Should it be pumps?) a rich inky dark brown with a foamy whipped cream head. The aroma was coffee, chocolate and mainly a grassiness. Tastewise, again chocolate and a touch of coffee, but with a hefty whack of caramel and toffee, with a hint of bitterness in the background. Wonderfully easy to drink and a magnificent beer!
