2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark bronze color. Poured aggressively and still no head. Itís very clear.
Smells great. Nice nutty aroma. I smell some chocolate, I smell coffee. I smell nuts. I smell sweetness. Is it maple, I dunno....I also smell some roasted malt.
Taste is somewhat of a let down. I taste all of the above mentioned stuff, but itís so watery, so thin, itís disappointing. Itís sweet. It tastes a little nutty. This is a little under performing however.
Mouthfeel is very watery. Extremely watery. Itís not at all what I expect a brown ale to be. The mouthfeel leaves a lot to be desired. Itís so thin and light, itís really not even desirable. Itís barely drinkable.
Overall, ití a huge let down. Think of this as a brown ale light. While the nuts and the malts are tasty, the body of the beer is so thin, itís makes the beer bad. I would not recommend this.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Keg at Tommyknocker, Helsinki, 20150523) The beer poured mahogany coloured and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had caramel, sweetness, burnt sugar and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, molten sugar, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, sweet and bitter. A too sweet and still harsh brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from bottle. Pours a clear, thin looking, pale brown with a creamy 1 finger head. Aroma is fairly mild, some mild caramel and maple notes. Taste is a touch of weak coffee, milk chocolate, slightly burned extract, and maybe a touch of maple. There is also a slightly off sweet/tang flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Not bad, but not memorable either.
