3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2014 On tap at Pour 24 up the escalator from the casino in New York, New York, Las Vegas. Showed a clear & bright, walnut tone, with thick, persistent head froth, and spots & spiraling rings of lacing. The nose was toasted, smooth malt, light grain, nutty, light caramel, with a touch of toffee & chocolate. The taste was similar notes, but more roasted, with some nice creaminess to the mouthfeel. Light+ bodied, with decent carbonation, maybe a bit watery, and washed out texture-wise, and lightly dry with a hint of sulfur on the finish. Not a bad Brown, though.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Pour 24 New York New York in Las Vegas. Lots of roasted malt and caramel in the aroma, sweet and inviting. There are lightly bittered chocolate flavours with hints of vanilla, butterscotch and caramel. All adds up to a good tasting beer with lots of flavours and a well structured finish that leaves you wanting more.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on tap the The Pub in the Monte Carlo. The appearance is a pale brown with a small white head. The nose is some light caramel and a mild malt roast. The flavors are similar but very bland. The mouth is a little on the flat side, lighter bodied. Not that good of a brown or maybe an old keg.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a rich amber with a thin but tight foam. Aroma was very weak with some malt and bready character. Taste was very sweet and much brighter than I expected. Nutty, caramel, some bread. Finish was longer and the bittering became noticeable. Good nut brown ale overall.
