2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium brown.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of plum.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Simple but ok in the nose. A tad clunky and dirty in the mouth. Boring and forgettable.

3/9/11. 12oz bottle. Muddy, nut brown pour with a nutty brown head that muds away. Light nutty aroma that is slightly mud-dled. Nutty flavor that seems a bit metallic and dirty... but it’s wet, so I guess that’s... mud?

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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)

Hazy brown pour with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and dark fruit. The flavor is similar. I get a bit of chalky chocolate notes, as well as some grass, grapes and toasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

( 12oz bottle thanks to Swalden28) Pours clear amber with good lacing. Nose of toasted grain and bread. Taste is unsweet malt and not much to talk about really. Decent carbonation with a toasty finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl - Publix Supermarket - Centerville Rd.- 12 oz bottle. Pours a nice dark coper-amber with an initial frothy off-white head that leaves a nice ring around the glass. Aroma is pretty much neutral with just a hint of nuts if you try really hard. Flavor is mild, but pleasant, some nuttiness, a hint of chocolate and just a slight hint of bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick enough with a bit of creaminess. Decent.
