3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can poured an earthy brown color with a bit of red highlights and a ring of tan head. Aroma has some nuts, chocolate malt, and light hop bitterness. Mouth feel is medium light with average carbonation. Flavor gets some malt going once it warms, light hops, nuts, and a bit of bitterness.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2013 Poured from the can at a Sixpoint tasting at Whole Foods Bowery Beer Room today in NYC. Pours clear brown with small beige head. Slightly bitter in taste with some hoppiness, nuttiness and fruit. Was my least favorite of the Sixpoint tasting today...

Can: clear brown with small beige head; aroma-caramel, bread, roasty; taste-light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average carbonation. Just feel watered down and leaving me wanting a thicker beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear red-brown with a 2-fingered tan head - foamy and lingering. Smells of toffee, bread, caramel, floral herbs. Taste is sweet and mildly bitter - bready, hints of caramel, chocolate, crisp clean hops.

1/29/13. On tap at Kickbackís. Mostly clear amber brown pour with a thick creamy tan head with a ton of lacing. It actually looks very nice. Mild hoppy aroma with smooth chocolate, nuttiness, and bread. Lightly bitter flavor with a light hop kick, roasted malts, chocolate, toasted bread, and a hint of lingering sour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has some bread and caramel qualities. A nice toasted bread note along with light caramel and toffee. A light nuttiness and chocolate is also present. Clean yeast character with little to no esters and no diacetyl. No hops or alcohol present in the aroma.
Pours a somewhat cloudy brown with a thin, slightly off white head that recedes to the edges fairly quickly. Light lacing with no legs.
Flavor is all malt. Lots of caramel and toffee as well as nice toasted bread crust. Hints of chocolate and a nice nuttiness. A faint resinous hop flavor helps balance the malt, but the finish is mostly dark caramel and toasted bread. This has quite a bit of a Munich and Vienna malt flavor. Medium low bitterness.
Medium body with medium carbonation. Finishes with some sticky sweetness to it. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth.
Overall this is an interesting take on a brown ale. It doesn't have the hop character that one would expect from an American Brown Ale. Some of the malt character is nice but it is also a bit muddled with a bit too much going on.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a session beer, plain and simple. Good aroma, nice color, moderate taste, on a balanced palate. Low hop which is what you expect and want for the style. Very drinkable, but not memorable. A good beer to keep coming and enjoy during a long conversation

Can. Hazy mahogany color with a small, off white head. I donít know what this is upon first look and sip. Adam tells me this is a brown.
Smells like old caramels. I know many people are thinking "what do old caramels mell like?" Dust and caramel.
Iím missing the rich aspects of a brown ale with this beer. Thin, and watery, body. Hoppier hn most browns. Just not enthused.
