2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a pint glass. Light brown to amber color with a half finger of head. Good lacing.
Good, if faint smell of roasted malt.
The roasted malt comes through in the taste too. It mixes a little haphazardly with a hops in the middle. The bitterness wins out.
Smooth texture turning towards bubbly. Medium body and moderate carbonation.
A fine and average brown ale.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a dark brown, with a medium light khaki head that quickly fades, leaving fair lacing. Nose is medium roast malt. Taste is mild malt, with an odd iced-tea-like flavor. Very short finish. Moderate carbonation. OK for a session beer, nothing special.

Deep brown pour. No head. Toast, nutty, roast and burnt sugar aroma. Medium body. Enough carbonation. Flavor is balanced. Burnt toast. Bready. Mild to no hops. What hoppiness there is seems to be earthy medium dry finish. Mild bitterness.

I had this on tap. It has a pretty nice malt flavor, although understated, and it is very under-hopped, so it lacks anything to distinguish it. It is a golden brown color with a nice head.

Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club. Medium dark amber/brown color, sweet malty nose, sweet malty flavor compromised by chemical notes, astringency. Probably not the best introduction I could have to this particular brewery.

Bottle brought back from New Mexico by my buddy Holt. First NM beer I've tried. Nice brown cola color. Aroma of nuts and roasted malt. Taste is smooth. A good brown ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, somewhere in Santa Fe. Red-brown colored, medium head. Malty nose, some hops, caramel. Caramel malty flavor, some licorice, dry in finish. Not bad, but not really my kind of beer.
