Bottle. Reddish-brown and quite active. Caramel is the predominate character. Super, super smooth, velvety even. Easy drinker with no obtuse, sticky sugars that sometimes burden brown ales. Very nice. (#4975, 4/7/2013)

Pours a thin clear brownish toffee color on two with bubbly white head. Aroma is caramel, but brown and light sweet chocolate and toffee. Taste follows, thin and a bit too sweet, but easy to drink. Meh.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear brown with white head. Slight caramel aromas, some toasty, bready notes. Toasted nutty flavours, a touch of burnt caramel sweetness. However, this is quite light and watery. Average.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance has a dark copper brown color supporting a thin dissipating head leaving no lace. Smell of the light roasted barley, chocolate and vanilla, but faint. Taste of roated barley and malts mainly rounding out with the hops. Mouthfeel is medium light with good carbonation. Not much into browns anyway, but I’ve had better browns.

Bottle. Dirty brown mid water with almost no head. Some hint of caramel and light yeast. Not a bad beer. Nice change of pace for spring.

Minimal head on a medium brown colored body.
The aroma is nice with chocolate, flora notes and nuts.
The taste is sweet overall with roasted and chocolate malt dominating.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable brown ale.

Draft at Moriartys. Clear copper pour with a tight off-white head. Medium malt flavors. Cola. Tangerine peels. Cinnamon. Not really that complicated. Thankfully not too sweet. Easy drinking but not exceptional.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. A light brown color with a small off white head. The nose has light nut, malt, and a touch of caramel. The flavor follows suit with a light, easy drinking body. Nothing spectacular, but certainly sessionable.
