3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a darker brown with mid-sized head. Roasted malt and hop aromas. Flavor is almost a touch on the sour side. There are coffee and roasted malt flavors, too, but undercut by this weirdly sour note (maybe I got a bad bottle?).

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice brown color with a tan 2 finger head. Nice English aroma on the beer. Some nice maltiness with hints of smoke, wood and nuttiness. A hint of roasted malt. The taste is very similar to the nose but with a bit of hop astringency in the middle of the palate. Very nice beer. Very clean and sessionable.
