3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
20th November 2010
Cloudy brown beer, tidy off white head. Softish dry palate. Sweet malt, almost milky. Minerals lead to citrus hops with a trailing edge of spicy pine. Finishes slightly dry. An unusual Brown Ale but very very drinkable!

Brown, amber pour with a thin head. Fruity, raisiny, with a little floral and grassy character. It’s good, but a little bit too sweet for my liking.

Thanks for the beer, Adam.
A: brown, moderate head and lace
S: both hops and malt are strong in the nose. very interesting and intriguing, cocoa
T: Nice hop flavor up front, an enjoyable sweetness, slight chocolate aftertaste. The hoppiness and maltiness together is strange and delightful. An odd brew, but well done. An interesting treat.
M: creamy with a nice carbonation level
D: a nice brew that I’d be happy to have again.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Beautiful amber/brown color. There are notes of toast, raisins, fruity/floral hops, slight woody character. A nice brown ale, a bit big for a warm day.

Bottle to snifter. Looks good; brown with some head and CO2. Smells decent; malty and hoppy. Tastes pretty good; much like it smells. Okay on the palate. Good, but not great.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Originally reviewed: 1/31/11. 12oz bottle poured into a chalice. Pours a dirty amber-brown with no head at all. Just a ring sits rests along the edge. This leaves some light lace behind. The nose is surprisingly citrusy. Big notes orange, pineapple, then the malts come through more with some brown sugar and faint breads. This smells like a standard Pale.
The mouth is light and carbonated well. This helps in drinkability quite. The flavors are different from standard Browns I’ve had. The citrus aspect carries over here as well, with flavors of lemon, orange and mild bitterness from the hops. The usual Brown characteristics are fleeting, if not absent. Some mild malty sweetness on the back end. This was a different take. I guess the more I have from these guys, the more I learn that they like to push the envelope a bit on the styles and ingredients. I’d have it again, I guess, but not when I’m looking for a Brown Ale.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle pour into pint glass. Translucent red-brown color reminds me of Coca-Cola without as much carbonation. Enjoyed what the taste offered: dry, hoppy, roasted malt. This is a good brew to pair with a burger (or other "heavy" sandwich) and fries.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Big fruity malty aroma. Sourness first. Fruit and complex unripened fruit. Interesting. A brewpub that I really like.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle thanks to mikem (i think). poured brown with a beige head and a few spots of lace. aroma was chocolate, caramel, toffee, and maybe the slightest bit of butter. flavor was pretty much the same as the flavor plus a slight bitter on the finish. body was medium-full with low carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a dark murky reddish-brown with a huge foamy cream head that lingers. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, with malt, dark fruits, sugar, wood. Taste of sweet malt, citrus hops, wood, dark fruits. Lingering sweet and hoppy. The bottle’s aged a bit too long, but still pretty tasty.
