3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear brown color with a small beige head. Aroma is fairly sweet, and malty with some nutty and slightly roasty scents. Taste is nutty and moderately sweet, hint of roastiness toward the back of the throat, along with some chocolate, and floral hops. Medium bodied, with less-than-usual carbonation. Leaves a roasted chocolaty malt finish. Not a bad beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours deep amber/lt brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is a bit fruity. Flavor is also fruity...like a bad homebrewing attempt at a belgian of sorts...light metallic note. Mouthfeel is light/medium with a fruity finish that has a spicy note reminiscent of cinnamon. Yuck!

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2012 Aroma of caramel, soy and coffee beans. Color is dark copper or light brown. Sweet malted candy flavor with noticeable hop presence. Pale so far as brown ales go. Medium body and somewhat chalky. Not the best brown around.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. The pour was a Carmel brown with a large (2-3 finger) light tan rocky head that quickly receded to a thin spotty film and a very small collar with some very light spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a toasted biscuit malt, a very mild resin hop and a doughy yeast with notes of caramel, a light cocoa and a mild nuttiness.
The taste was lightly malty sweet with a mild hint of a caramel sweetness at first and then had a light bitter presence with a hint of cocoa and a mild nutty feel towards the end. The flavor was around for a little while and was of a mildly bitter caramel taste.
Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and watery in texture with a moderate carbonation.
Overall a pretty basic beer, which was actually quite drinkable but nothing special...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: 12 oz short bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 4/30/12
Aroma: The nose is fairly subtle with some hints of nutty and toasted malts
Appearance: It pours a clear orange-brown color with a fizzy, quickly dissipating, off-white head
Flavor: The taste is also a little on the dull side as well, with some light sweetness and not much else
Palate: The body is light and rather watery, with an overly fizzy carbonation that hurts the drinkability
I wasn’t a fan of this one. Honestly, I just didn’t felt like it worked at all. The nose was dull, the taste was bland, and the body was both watery and too carbonated. I’ll probably try to stay clear of this one.
