2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A bad brown. Tastes strange. Pours a very nice red with a thick head. Smells good, like vanilla. Taste though is off. Very bitter, from start to finish, and not in a good way. Stay away from this one. Had on tap at the brewery.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The lightest brown ale ever...amber pour with a white head. Swee toffee and sugar notes, a bit of toast, and bread. Light citrus peel and floral hops. The flavor is a bit watery. Some toast and bread malt sweetness, very mild hop notes, and a bit of cardboard.

As part of a sample plate
Clear deep copper to brown color, white head. Malty, bread, dry, caramel, some alcohol taste. Moussy mouthfeel, medium dry bitterness. A bit fruity, mainly malty scent. Also some alcohol in the scent.
Decent drinkable brown who’s not over the top.
