3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice light brown appearance with finger-length head that sticks around for a bit and leaves nice thick rings of lacing. Aroma is cereal-y, toasty, and a little nutty with a hint of earth and metal. Taste was a letdown after the nice appearance and pretty good aroma - very little flavor at all. I understand brown ales are one of the more subdued styles, but this is quite weak even for the style. There should be more notes of the nuttiness and toast suggested by the aroma, but there is just some vaguely bready malts on the tongue, and little else. Drinkable enough, but doubt I will get this again with many other tastier browns out there.

Lightly sweet brown with caramel and chocolate, yet still not "dessert-y". Smooth and easy-drinking.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasant, sessionable, smooth and easy-drinking brown ale. Light toast, subtle sweetness (brown sugar, caramel, honey, vanilla), faint spiciness (pepper, possibly a hint of clove) and a little nuttiness. Finishes clean.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz weird shape bottle. Pours medium amber with a white head. Nothing very distinctive here just a simple easy drinking brown ale. It is a very drinkable session beer though nothing that great really.

Bottle. Pours a somewhat dark clear brown color with a smallish white head. Nose is a little nutty and malty. Taste has a little bit of caramel in there with a nice balance. Decent.

very neutral taste, not much distinctive about this... perhaps slightly Smokey and slightly bitter...that’s it

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A beer that sort of calls out for a little more malt and alcohol. Nice top roast notes and sweet finish. More of a session beer than anything.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft poured a brown color, aromas of nuts, light cocolate, and some caramel. Medium mouthfeel, flavors same as aromas, with some earthness to it.
