Slightly dark brown appearance, with a small white head. Aromas were missing at first, but after it warmed up there were some nuts, hops, coffee. Too watery for my liking, just seemed like the brewer wasn't trying.

This is a very good Brown Ale, my sister brought some back from a trip out west. Beer is always the best souvenir, it’s a liquid post card. Pours a light chestnut color with a thin beige head. Pleasant roasty nut aroma. Flavor of brown sugar, nuts and hops with a good dry finish. A good New Mexican beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reddish brown hue with a short frothy off-white head and good lace. The aroma hints of cashews, caramelized malts, mild coco flakes, faint aromatic hops, and a off band-aid ester. The taste starts with a zesty and caramel presence. Undertones of nuts and mocha found within. The short finish displays a bready and bitter combo with a hint of coffee. The mouthfeel is good for a brown ale, lively and refreshing, dry and chalky in the finish. Just average but good enough for a drink or two, it is not nutty enough however. Thanks again Eric for the bottle.
