3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz (squishy) can, no date from Lukas Liquors in Lone Tree. Perhaps there isnít much carbonation? We shall see. Clear auburn brown with 1/16" beige head that lasted about 4 seconds before fading to a very thin ring. Iíll have to update with my other cans to see if theyíre as flat. Nutty roasted aroma with some toffee sweetness, but also a tinge of some twang. Not really getting any twang in the flavor--just a nutty, lightly roasty, a little chocolatey, somewhat sweet brown ale. Semi-dry with a lactose note, bitterness peaking at a 2-3, slightly ashy. Barely a tingle of carbonation heavies this into a full bodied brew. Flavorís good, though.
