Pretty boring brown ale. Some hop aromas and flavors with some coffee malt flavors. Meh. Pretty standard.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I really enjoyed this. It’s a lovely purple red colour, with a head that dissipates very quickly. Medium body. The aroma, and then the taste, is like a fruit punch or (my wife tried it to confirm I wasn’t going mad) sangria. The malty finish is then nice and dry.
