1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I am having a hard time finding anything positive to say. Aroma is metallic which also carries over to the taste. The beer is a bit too bitter overal and is difficult to pick out any nice flavors. Not a fan

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Categorized according to it being a Brown Ale!
1. Aroma: Decent caramel/sweet/nutty/biscuit like malt smell. Low on hops aroma (which is alright for this style i.e Brown Ale).
2. Apparance: Boring look! Very poor head retention and no lacing! Indifferent color wise..
3. Decent malt taste (mild chocolate coming through) and a good zap of bitter hops in the end (for a brown ale) - No notable aroma/taste hops.
4. Medium body - nice mouthfeel. Unfortunately, highly under carbonated! Surprisingly bitter finish.
Overall: Above average Brown Ale, but has some flaws (I suspect the one I got had been on the shelf for a while)
