3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Appearance: Deep ruby reddish brown and clear, with a thick, frothy khaki colored head that lingers.
Aroma: Bready, toasted, and roasty malt aromas.
Taste: Malt is very toasted bread crust-like, hint of nuts, turning to a strong roast. Bitterness kicks in sharply on the backside, and when combined with the roasty malt there is some astringency.
Mouthfeel: Body is a little light and thin, with a moderate carbonation.
Finish: Sharp kick of bitterness and roast on the finish, with slight astringency.
Overall: A good, light, easy drinking rendition of an alt, with a bit too much roasty character for the style. Drinks really closely to an American Brown Ale

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clean, amber/brown color with a fantastic creamy, off-white head that hangs around for a long time. Aroma is very malt centered with a smooth toasted malt, light mix of hay and bread with a very pronounced grassy and light earthy hops finish. Flavor has an awesome toasted grainy Munich malt early in the tasting with a light touch of chocolate malt/light roasted malt and finishes with a smooth noble hop grassy spalt hop flavor. Body is perfect with it feeling crisp but has a hefty feeling to it and a great carbonation rate. Overall a fantastic example of the Alt style. So far, I have been extremely impressed with everything I have had the chance to sample from Urban Chestnut.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer pours a slightly hazy, dark copper color with a medium-sized khaki-colored head. The aroma blends nutty and toasted malts with dough yeast, and the taste is mildly umami, slightly sour, and a touch sweet with an aftertaste that is dry and reminiscent of nuts and toast. The palate has a sift carbonation, thin and slick texture, and a medium-light body.

Dark amber copper. Thick foam. Caramelized. Kinda reminds of a fat tire...which is a good thing.

Tap at the brewery, pours a clear reddish brown with a lasting off white head and lacing, the aroma is of really sweet malt with a hint of bittering hops as well, the flavor is sweet but kind of lacks in the finish, some banana and fruit comes through too, nothing crazy but not bad.
