Chestnut pour, no head. Nose is medium kilned malt. Bittersweet. Middle is soft caramel and nutty grain. Finish is slightly sweet with hints of toffee. Very much in the British brown realm

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty malty and lightly sweet. Flavor has some complexity but not in an especially good way. A little yeast, iron, dashes of lemon and coca cola. Nothing great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear darker brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is nutty and toasty with just a little bit of bread coming through for me. Taste is lightly toasty and slightly nutty on the back end. Decent beer.

Clear dark Amber with a thin beige cap. Interesting nose of very light Costa Rica coffee and herbal hops. Chewy toast flavor with a kiss of herbal bitterness and toasted dough.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2014 Mid aroma of malted grain, cereal, hazelnuts, and caramel. The mouthfeel is on the thin side, with moderate but adequate carbonation, making for a very sessionable drink. The taste mostly follows the aroma notes, for a nutty, caramely sweet with a slight grainy bitterness to it. The finish is clean and gently dry. Straightforward, simple, unexciting, but it gets the job done and goes quickly.

"Light caramel and nuts in both the aroma and flavor, but both aspects are fairly weak, with the added benefit of a watery thin feel. Not offensive, but not real good either."
