3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Unfiltered, thick orange-red-brown color. Oily, smallish off-white head. Sweet, intensely sugary. Has some OK malt depth, but the hops aren’t offering much. Has an old school 90s brewpub kind of feel...not in a good way. Not quite big enough to be a Barleywine, but sort of heading in the direction, at least for a Brown. Tolerable, but not one I’d revisit eagerly.

bottle, tough to enjoy this one.. its not really even a good standby, its just a plain jane brown, and maybe thats okay but I found myself wishing i had served this ice cold and just guzzled the crap out of it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Skyview. Murky brown with a creamy and rocky brown crown. Aroma of malt, soap, mild nuts and light citrus. Taste is malty and nutty with salt, over-roasted malt and a metallic finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Well hazed orange amber color, which is a strange color for something called a brown ale. One and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is good and a short ring of lacing is left. Yeasties suspended throughout.
3.5 S: Despite the appearance, it smells like a brown ale. Lots of toastiness with a hazelnutty nuttiness. Grainy malts with a moderate sweetness.
3.5 T: Tastes like it smells. Toasty, nutty, grainy. Moderate neutral malt sweetness with some crystal malt. Super clean despite being unfiltered. Tasty.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth.
3.5 D: Fairly typical brown, but that not a bad thing because it means it’s tasty. Good throughout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is murky copper/brown with a tan head. Aroma shows caramel, nuts, and a touch of earth. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of red fruit and a light herbal quality. Overall body is moderate, soft and finishes with light bitterness.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nutty cereal aroma. Skunky smokey flavor. Not really my style. Kind of a creamy/sticky mouth feel.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Biscuity but murky flavors, with an obvious hop presence. Indeed, too much. In the context of a brown ale the floral finish seems...odd. Not to my liking. Bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy brown with a thin white head. Aroma is pretty decent with some nutty tones and a maltyness. Taste is malty with a bit of bitterness coming through near the end. A pretty nice brown ale!
