2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled as Red Brick Brown. Pours a nice copper with a finger of head, quickly dissipating. Aroma is caramel and raisin. Taste is the same - reminds me of Oatmeal Raisin Bran cereal, honestly. Unpleasantly copper taste on the finish; not a hoppy bitterness, just a metallic component to the flavor. Gets a little sweeter as it warms up. Metal on the palate too, and a little to light-bodied. This is the first Red Brick I’ve tried; don’t know that I’d give them a second chance based on it.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a med dark brown with a thin dissipating white head. Nose of tosted and hay malt. Big taste of toasted malt with a touch of sweet. Med bodied with a slight lingerer of that same toasted malt. Over all not a bad beer to drink on a fall night but nothing to write home about.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a thick white head. This is actually sour to me, almost in the neighborhood of a barleywine. Very biting on the palate.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a bottle into a tulip beer glass. Brown/amber in color, almost transparent, light head, big bubbles. Not quite as brown as I thought a brown ale should be.
Smells like a barn filled with hay.
Taste: Toasted malt, a little nutty. Ends a little bitter.
Light and carbonated. A bit more body and less carbonation would be better.
If you are not expecting a brown ale then this beer is not too bad, just do not smell it and watch out for the carbonation.
