Nice head with minor, splotchy lacing. Smells toasty and toffee to start, with some acid. Taste follows suit. Boozy finish; caramel sugar. I didn’t know what style this was when I had it at first; no farmhouse funk or anything sour to make me think it was a Bière de Garde. Good beer, at any rate; had no problem finishing it.

Pretty average carmel type beer. malty sweet no aroma thin fading head. slight bitterness and tiny sourness but more in grain than an actual sour. Average beer.

beautiful amber colored lightly hazed ale. not terribly heady with a nice aroma reminiscent of a catholic church after benediction and the use of incense. very smooth initially with a med to heavy bitterness down the tongue to the finish. med light mouthfeel.

Pours amber with a smallish, long lasting head. Caramel aroma. Earthy taste mixes with minerals and some sweetness. Interesting, well made beer I’ll be drinking again.

First 2 brothers I have tried and it was very good. Aroma was a bit lacking but still very tasty.

Not bad. Toasty woodsy caramel is about right. Not a ton going on but pleasant and mellow throughout. Barely enough hops to notice but i liked the malt and yeast character

Head was frothy whites that fully dissipated. The taste was uncarbonated, sweet malt with the smallest amount of funk. The nose was malty with a caramel and fruity aroma. The palate was smooth and medium bodied.

Ruby pour with dense white head. Malty aroma. Flavor is generally sweet with lots of caramel malt, a little spicy yeast. Some grass hop and bitterness in the finish. I like it, but the body gets a bit cloying.

The beer is slightly hazy, with a deep amber body and a reddish cast beneath a short but creamy head of white foam. The nose is offers a combination of delicately toasty and straw-like grain with caramel and slight fruitiness. The body is medium-light with a zesty, very-fine bubbled carbonation. The flavor starts with bold, toasty and caramel malts upfront, followed by a splash of fruit (sour cherry, tangerine, plum) that fades into a rather dry finish. Mouthfeel is medium to light. The beer reminds me of a toastier and drier Irish ale. I loved it.
