12 oz. bottle. Pours copper color with white head that disapates quickly. Good old carmel nose, light cocoa. Butter and bread taste (diacetyl), touch of carmel, then a pretty light-hopped ending, a touch muddled. Not bad. Decent session. If the diacetyl wasn’t there, it’d be much better.

Cola brown body with an eggshell head. Smells lightly of chocolate. Taste is very dry, carbonated. Much like a plain piece of buttered toast. Spicy and clean finish. Sampled at the Weyerbacher Brewery in South Easton, PA.

Musty first pop aroma. Taste is some candy that morphs into a leathery appeal, quite complex. Some interesting spice is apparent also. Bitter saddle soap. What style is this? Cannot be an APA! Creamy feel on the palate. Finish hangs around like a friend that wore out his welcome.

I enjoyed this. I don’t know why the rating are low. It has a low abv (4.5) but i thought it was a nice Brown ale (didn’t taste or seem like an amber ale).

Light-to-medium mouthfeel: cereal, wet malts, and some sugar; not much here; muddled and basic, one-dimensional maltiness; medium, sugar and cereal finish.
