2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Psycho Suzi’s. Plastic cup. Dark brown color and a frothy head. Aroma of roasted malts and coffee. Initial taste is more crisp than expected but packs the roasted malt takes over. Surprisingly less meal like than I anticipated. Relatively easy to drink and a clean finish. I think the coffee nature brings the score down a bit but an average effort all around. If you want a brown ale from MN, you could do worse than the Lost Trout.

Smooth to drink brown ale with excellent balance of sweet and malty flavors. Pairs well with chicken, and just about any food available at the average bar.
