2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent red brown colored body and a poor lacing. The weak aroma was hoppy and brown malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The good flavor contained notes of wood nutty brown malt and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From notes - pint pour, hazelnut brown with amber notes. Nose comes in nutty with coffee, espresso, cocoa? mildly roasted. Notes of vinegar, also. The flavor wasn’t amazing, coming in with vinegar in the front. Malts are pleasantly roasted with notes of coffee and nuttiness. Medium to lighter in body.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nutty and hoppy, great initial taste but there is a strong alcohol bite to get past on the aftertaste. I prefer my brown ales to finish a little smoother.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the FBG Beerfest, poured a dark brown color with aromas of roasted malt, light chocolate, and some sweetness. Flavor is the same, with a touch of nuttiness to it. Nice little brown ale overall that wouldn’t mind drinking again.
