4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) What a surprise! A big punch of roasted malts and a lovely hot of green hoppyness in this that makes it from the first mouthful a bit of a pleasant experience. Unfortunately the bottle I have was right at the edge of it’s "enjoy by" date. I sit here thinking that the fresh version must be a real eye-popper of a drink.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle (22oz $5): pours a clear ruby brown with one finger light tan head. I got very little aroma. Tasted is subtle toasted malt with slight bitterness. Body is between light and medium as is carbonation. Very drinkable and relatively inexpensive. Could be a regular, but wish they had them in 12oz.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Subdued aroma is followed by an enjoyable sour-malt flavour and subtle bitter finish. A good example of the style.

Brown ales are usually a bit bland but this one isnt too bad. Toffee biscuit rich malty taste. Minimal hops. Good winter beer. Well made.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not bad at all. My bottle says "American Brown Ale," and I’m not sure exactly what this means. More hoppy, perhaps, than the Euro varieties. Not as much malt forward. Quite good.
