I enjoyed this brown ale. I thought the pour was very nice and it had a good mouthfeel that was not too thick. The beer had a certain twinge of their others. I’d like to try it on draft.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Very malty, with lots of cereal and nuts.
Appearance: Poured from a bottle, but no head what so ever, which was disappointing for a Brown Ale. Hazy amber color.
Taste: Light sweetness, but nothing much.
Palate: Light body with a thin texture, average carbonation.
Overall: It’s drinkable, but I certainly wouldn’t search it out.
