2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 on tap @ Drake’s / Florence KY Clear mahogany with a thin head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is malt with brown sugar and hazelnut. Moves through the palate without incident before allowing a touch of bittering in the finish. Fair, but not one of Upland’s best. Re-rating to add place.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft served in a pint glass at Olives. Pours a clear reddish-amber-brown with a small beige head. Not much to the aroma or flavor; some toasted and caramel malts, dry leaves, grass, a bit of fruit, and the nuts are really light and in the background. Not a nut/toast-forward brown ale at all. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation a and a thin, smooth, earthy mouthfeel. Drinks easy. Underwhelming.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pint on tap at Lackman. Clear red brown color. Thin khaki head. Good ridges and ropes of lace. Pretty sweet taste, a bit intense and slightly cloying in the finish. Medium body. Smooth, sort of crisp / lightly soft tingly stronger carbonation. Lightly slick in the finish. Kind of nutty, caramel malt, spicy malt. Hint of chocolate. Disappointing brown ale, not really anything going for it. Too sweet, and texture is a bit sharp. Close to a macro brown. Almost a tart bite to it, even. Maybe this is an old keg? The more I sipped, the more I lowered the score
