This was very underwhelming not a very good beer in general. the only aspect of the beer was a lot of malts, not very nutty, or other flavors typically associated with a brown ale

Bottle shared at a tasting at Alexey and Refaelaís place. Brown color with reddish hues and a beige head. Aroma of malt, a bit of caramel, nuts and some fruitiness. Dry-ish flavor with light sweetness, malt, a bit of nuts, light fruitiness and a pretty strong earthy and herbal hops bitterness. Medium-bodied. Good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark amber or light-ish brown color with a big fluffy light tan head.
The aroma is nice, leafy & nutty with a mild roastiness and a touch of chocolate but without much sweetness.
The flavor is really something, robust and decently hoppy, rich but not very sweet. Nutty, almost woody, with a nice big bitterness. There is caramel for sure but itís light. The roasty malt and the hops do most of the talking here, both are robust and yet well balanced.
The body is very light, but I donít think it comes across as watery or thin, the carbonation helps Iím sure and this one is fairly lively... Itís an easy drinker thatís for sure.
I really enjoy this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours crystal clear hazel, large puffy tan head, dissipates slowly leaving big blobs of puffy lacing. Aroma is nutty, malty, toffee, a bit of cardboard. Flavor is malty, truly malty, like malt syrup almost, light sweet with a bit of grassy bitterness, a bit nutty as well. Pretty light bodied, a bit of acid, but otherwise nice enough.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 650 ml. bottle with an bottling date of Feb 2014. Four months old isnít bad for a brown. The pour is a slightly cloudy brown to dark brown color leading up to a soft, silky, beige head. Lots of sweet and nutty malts on the nose with a touch of molasses maybe or toffee and a lean crisp hop note. The body is medium and smooth with a lingering bitter finish. The taste is also sweet and nutty. It has all the gold star characteristics of a brown ale.
