3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper appearance with a large tan head and good lacing. Aroma of mildly roasted caramel malts dotted with coffee. Sweet malt flavor mixes in notes of toffee, dark bread and nuts. Hops are evident but the strength of the aroma and taste are not duplicated in the finish. Medium bodied, nicely carbonated mouthfeel

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A heady and drinkable brown with a great mouthfeel and clean finish.
Almost black opaque pour and abundant toffee head. Light on the aromatics (ie malt heavier). Great roasted character without being too sweet, just wants for a bit of unique character to stand out from the other decent browns.

More beer from mother in law, wait a minute, how did she know I couldn’t get Uinta in AK. No worries, I’m grateful.
This was poured into a mug.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer.
The smell had a decent nutty/burnt caramel with a crisp leafy - ness to it (reminiscent of Autumn).
The taste was semi - sweet with a nice robust and somewhat roasty to burnt caramel to nuttiness with a light toffee coming in to satisfy.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was appropriately styled and was good for me.
Overall, nice brown ale I could definitely see myself coming back to if I could get it again. So glad to have a brown ale on this murky SE Alaskan night in what we call Autumn right now.

Bottle in Layton. Fairly typical brown ale across the board. Bitterness actually dominates the flavor profile so maybe a little one dimensional.

Bottle shared by Keith from some stupid beer club thing. Thin and red brown with no lacing or head. Watery and homebrewish brown, notes are mostly malt, nuts and bread. Not good.
