3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I keep telling people that the English Brown Ale style is one of my favourite styles, but sadly, North American brewers tend to go for an over-hopped undermalted version of the style. This however is one of the better attempts. A nice clear brown pour, the aroma is undoubtedly nuts and caramel. The flavour is slightly sweet with hints of both, but again, too much hops in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle purchased from Woody’s in Cool Springs. Poured a hazy brown/amber color with a half finger of tan head. The aroma was sweet malt with faint notes of molasses and brown sugar. The flavor was somewhat weak, with caramel and toast dominating. This was a weak offering. I didn’t get a lot of nuts in the flavor.
