3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown. Toasted malts in the aroma. The taste has a smokey wood, cereal, and bitter hop flavor. The lager is smooth and highly drinkable. This is better than I was expecting cause of the low ratings. the smokiness of this beer gives it a unique character.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Minimal, non-offensive odor. Deep brown chestnut color. Not quite opaque, but pretty close. Mellow dark malt flavors with a smooth sugary finish. Mild hop balancing, no real stand out characteristics. Very easy drinking with a pleasant body. Not as good as the Nut Brown Ale, hopefully not a replacement.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
When I saw "brown lager" I had no idea what to expect. Malty, brown sugar nose, and maybe a little poop. Flavor is very roasty, almost as if it were a brown ale. Finish has a weird woody resonance, that isn’t at all displeasing, just surprising. A monumental step above Shiner Bock.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite nutty aroma, some smoke. No head. Taste is nutty, smoky and yet flat like the head. Might be quite good if it still had some carbonation left.
